    Fit for a new era.

    With roadies finally getting in on the hydraulic braking goods, Shimano released the ST-RS685 Hydraulic STI Levers for members of the Lycra set that are ready to reap the benefits of more effective stopping power with less effort. This Ultegra-level shifter comes crafted from lightweight alloy and shaped with the same sinuous contours as Dura-Ace 9000.

    Featuring 10mm of reach adjustment, the levers comfortably accommodate a wide range of hand sizes, riding styles, and personal preferences. The combination of lever shape and disc brakes delivers clean, consistent modulation whether you're shaving speed on a descent or slamming the brakes to avoid a crash, and each shift lever throw results in a clean, effortless shift with the signature precision we expect from Ultegra.

    The ST-RS685 Hydraulic Disc Brake and Lever is compatible with all of Shimano's 11-speed mechanical drivetrains, including Dura-Ace, Ultegra, and 105. Cables, housing, and hoses are included.

    • Hydraulic STI levers stop you smoothly and precisely
    • Ultegra internals for precise mechanical shifting
    • Adjustable reach adapts to different rider preferences
    • Compatible with all of Shimano's 11-speed mechanical drivetrains
    • Item #SHI00EL

    Closer to Perfection

      While 9000 was a huge step forward from 7900, I wasnt really sure how much better mechanical road shifting could get. Shimano has somehow come back with a new groupset that is noticeably better than 9000. The Rear derailleur shifts with a crisp, positive feeling going up and down the cassette, being fast but not SRAM DoubleTap clunky. Shimano has revised their hoods and levers to make a slightly sleeker package that seemed to fit in my hands perfectly. Definitely worth the upgrade from 9000, and would be a big difference forward from Ultegra 6800.

      Unanswered Question

      I'm looking at the shimano 685 road levers. Dot hey come with hydraulic line, and inner/outer shift housing? If so, is it sp41 housing and polymer coated cable (usually what ultegra comes with). Thanks, bob
