Dura-Ace 7900 STI's not only perform exceptionally but are now also extremely lightweight thanks to the carbon fibre lever blades, carbon composite bracket body and even a titanium clamp band / fixing bolt.
Precision-engineered Dura-Ace STI lever for the ultimate in powerful braking and effortless 10-speed shifting, making it the global choice for road racing's elite riders. Shift cables have been routed under the bar tape: re-development and positioning of the internal mechanism in combination with PTFE coated cables have made this possible, providing faster, lighter and smoother shifting.
Make sure the gear levers you choose are the correct ones for your rear cassette - either 8/9 or 10 speed. Also check that the integrated brake levers (if fitted) are cable or hydraulic to suit your brake calipers. Most SRAM shifters are only compatible with their own derailleurs.

Carbon fibre composite brake levers, titanium mounting band and bolt, and an overall compact design means these are light, but not the lightest shifter/brake units around.
Shimano claim to have reduced the lever throw for each shift by some 20 percent, or four degrees. But when we measured it, we found it took a 25-degree movement to shift to a larger sprocket, and still 20 degrees to shift to a smaller one, so we're not sure where the improvement is.
We all liked the new shaped hoods though, and the internal cable routing made for a cleaner looking front end, at the expense of some under-tape bulges and a slight increase in friction, despite the new PTFE linered cables.
Their shifting performance, although light and smooth, was a little too soft and quiet for some testers. We would prefer a more positive and precise feel from a flagship model. Weight is 365g a pair.
New shape is good; performance is smooth but a little vague
The new integrated brake and gear levers have been totally redesigned. For a start, the brake levers are carbon to drop a few grams (the complete units are 40g lighter) and add more sex appeal. Then there's the shape of the bracket body: you get a flatter top section with less of a scoop downwards when you're on the hoods. We wouldn't say they're necessarily more comfortable, just different from before, and definitely more Campag-esque. The shift cable now runs internally underneath your bar tape - again like Campagnolo - which neatens up the front end. It'll also please the aero-obsessed. You move down the cassette (changing up a gear) one sprocket at a time, the same as before, but whereas previously you could shift up the cassette a maximum of three sprockets at once, now there's less of a sweep and the maximum is two. That means that instead of three pushes to get from the smallest sprocket to the largest, it now takes five. It's rarely an issue but, still, a slight disadvantage. Those with smaller hands will appreciate the easy reach adjustment - you just take off the front cap and turn a screw to dial the levers right in - while hidden away underneath a titanium fixing band and bolt save a little weight.
Lightweight, comfortable levers with an easy action and generous reach adjustment
