Video: Unboxing the new Shimano 105 R7000 Groupset

We've got our hands on Shimano's brand new mid-range 11-speed groupset

We've finally gotten our hands on the brand new Shimano 105 R7000 groupset, and before we stick it on a frame, we thought we'd do a quick unboxing video and talk you through the main changes. 

This is the real workhorse of Shimano's range, it appears on a lot of road and gravel bikes across a broad spectrum of prices, and this latest generation offering takes all the tech from the top-end Dura-Ace groupset but distils it down into a much more affordable package. 

To clarify, we've got a mechanical rim brake groupset. It's also available with new hydraulic disc brakes if you prefer those.

He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
