The 105 ST-5800 shift/brake lever by Shimano - plus comfort and ergonomics
The Shimano 105 ST-5800 shift/brake lever has been slimmed down compared to its predecessor in the hood area, which provides more ergonomic comfort and more control when riding. The reach adjustment by screw is suitable for cyclists with smaller hands. Of course, the shifting operations are as smooth and defined as ever. The SLR-EV braking technology also stands for optimum controllability of braking performance. As is usual with the 105, the ST-5800 STI Dual Control levers are also available in a black and a silver version. A cable with friction-reducing Optislick coating is supplied.

STI Dual Control (DCL)
DCL stands for Dual Control Lever. It has brake and shifting functions in the system and enables easy operation. Ergonomic innovation is probably more critical to the higher standard performance than the added gearing. The shift internals borrow the robustness from Shimano's MTB technology and are so smooth and effortless that one finger shifts front and rear are possible. Indeed, shifting is the ultimate act of Shimano Total Integration, and simply has to be experienced to be understood.
The Dura Ace, Ultegra and 105 Dual Control shift/brake levers have been optimised and feature, for example, a weight-reduced joint on the inside of the shift mechanism and integration of the cable for easier steering. The extremely compact and high-precision manufactured individual parts result in an unrivalled shifting speed.
Optislick cables feature a minimal and uniform electrically coated layer that improves cable routing efficiency and provides excellent corrosion resistance.
