The Japanese component manufacturer Shimano has introduced its Di2 electronic shifting system, which is currently available on the road groupsets Dura-Ace and ultegra exist, has been continuously developed over the past few years. Today Shimano presented its first wireless solution for the management or for the monitoring of both groupsets.
The Shimano D fly The system is based on a small, wireless transmitter that communicates with the groups Dura Ace 9070, Ultegra 6870 Di2 and Ultegra 6770 E tube is compatible. The transmitter with the somewhat unwieldy name SM-EWW01 can be linked wirelessly to a corresponding computer. The signal transmission D fly works with its own ANT signal and allows the position of the switching elements and the charge level of the battery to be monitored. The transmitter is also fed by the latter.
The transmitter comes with the ANT+-enabled PRO knowledge be compatible, with Shimano currently also checking compatibility with devices from the manufacturer Mio. With a length of 38 millimeters, a width of 25 millimeters and a weight of less than five grams, the system should also be of interest to lightweight fans.
