Shimano 105 12v di2 2023 road test ride review
New Shimano 105 Di2 12v group road test review Build quality
Nothing to complain is the classic Shimano group, well made, not light, but of good overall quality.
Everything is done well, but the new Di2 technology comes at a high price ...
In fact, the new Shimano 105 Di2 12v group costs the same as a Shimano Ultegra Meccanico group, too much, but that's what the cyclist wants, the same one who complains that bikes are too expensive ...
New Shimano 105 Di2 12v group road test review Group
The new Shimano 105 12v group is complete with everything, including wheels and disc brakes.
Overall it is a valid group and with not excessive weights.
Too bad that it will be difficult to see a bike completely assembled with this group.

If you do not know that it is the 105 cannot understand if it is an Ultegra or a Dura Ace Di2, this is in summary the evaluation of an excellent group for its functionality.
Precise, fast, reliable.
Braking is also good.
Valid the smoothness of the bottom bracket and the fluidity of the controls.
New Shimano 105 Di2 12v group road test review Performance
Overall the group is fine, as an electronic group it is completely equivalent to the Shimano Ultegra Di2, only heavier, but the functionality is the same.
Good speed and smoothness of components and wheels.
It is not a light group in absolute terms, but competitive with the Sram Rival AXS group.
New group Shimano 105 Di2 12v road test review Pros and cons
The new Shimano 105 12v Di2 group fills the gap that was in the Shimano catalog and now there is a valid alternative to Sram entry level electronic groups.
It is a very good group in all, too bad for the high price and in line with other competing electronic groups.
For the rest, a valid choice in terms of quality and functionality.
