Gears: Shimano’s Di2 (Digital Integrated Intelligence) is a shifting option to Shimano’s proven mechanical shifting. Instead of mechanical cables, Di2 is an electronic gear-shifting system that enables riders to execute shifts with electronic switches vs. mechanical shift levers. Di2's most obvious benefit is its remarkably smooth and precise shifting action.Tap the upshift button and you're rewarded with that telltale 'ka-chunk' of a perfectly executed change. Go a step in the other direction and the transition is so seamless as to be virtually imperceptible. In fact, it's almost too smooth.
