If you're being pulled in the direction of 11-speed gearing, but don't need top-tier Dura-Ace or Ultegra components, look to the Shimano 105 group to satisfy your needs. The 105 FD-5800 11-Speed Front Derailleur keeps your chain aligned and your shifts smooth.
The biggest difference in the new 5800-series front mechanism is a longer link arm and a lower trim position. The latter helps to minimize the possibility of chain drop. New springs have also been added for faster, more reliable shifting both up and down.
The Shimano 105 FD-5800 11-Speed Front Derailleur is available in the color Black. It comes in braze-on, 31.8mm clamp-on, and 34.9mm clamp-on.

Does the Job perfectly
THe 105's last forever! Sure they are a bit heavier but i don't care as it is on my commuting bike. Love Shimonos products. High quality, smooth and keeps you spinning all day long!
105 = Awesome
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this front derailleur as part of a 105 groupset to put on a spare frame I had laying around. I decided to go with 105 because the 105 has had a history of being Shimano's workhorse group and this 11 speed group is priced great, which leaves money for wheels or cockpit parts. Every component within the group got a good upgrade and resembles features found on the higher priced 11 speed Dura-Ace and Ultegra groups. The 105 groupset also allows for a pretty easy gear configuration if you're interested too (11/32 cassette, long cage rear derailleur & a 50/34 crank). If you're on a budget or want a group for a training bike, the 105 11-speed group is no-brainer option.

durable, reliable, simple idk what else to say
will this derailleur work with older 10...
will this derailleur work with older 10 speed 105 drivetrains?
This will only work with the 11 spd drivetrains. You'll need the 5700 105 derailleur for the 10 spd group
