To ensure that the signal goes from the shifter to the derailleurs, the reliability of the electric cable has been proven by repeated field tests in various riding conditions, including extreme temperatures, rain,mud, and cobble stone roads.
The removal of traditional mechanical cables in favour of electrical wires not only eliminates poor shifting caused by contaminates, corrosion and stretching, but provides effortless gear shifts. Dura-Ace Di2 requires 2 cables: a handlebar cable set to connect the shifters to a battery indicator junction box or FlightDeck, and the other to connect the handlebar cable to the battery and derailleurs.
This battery to derailleur cable is available for internal or external routing in different lengths allowing for various frame sizes. External cable sets are ideal for upgrading your current bike to Dura-Ace Di2 if it does not feature the Di2 specific internal cable routing.
There are 3 lengths of cables available to suit your frame, these are:
875 (890)mm - for larger frames
790 (830)mm - for medium frames
705 (770)mm - for smaller frames

Good quality gear cables will have a dramatic effect on the feel and function of your drivetrain. Fully sealed systems are particularly good for MTB's used off-road or your winter bike as they prevent the ingress of water and muck, they have the benefit of requiring minimal maintenance, which is always nice. A good quality gear cable will provide a smoother lever feel, along with sharper and more precise shifting.
