NEW: Shimano Tiagra upgraded with improved hydraulic brake system

Shimano freshens up the Tiagra road brake system employing technology from their other lineups to enhance entry-level riding experiences.

Shimano has announced an upgraded version of its popular TIAGRA range with the promise of an enhanced cycling experience for riders new to road biking.

New dual control levers replace the previous units and now follow the slim body design of the Dura-Ace, Ultegra and 105 to house the hydraulic disc brake controls. Adjustability is also increased which improves rider feel and bike control.

The Tiagra 10-speed shifting mechanism within the lever body has also been upgraded from the non-series levers to provide quicker rear gear shifts, allowing riders to rifle through the cassette to gear up for a sprint or gear down for a climb.

A short reach lever with a more outboard profile for riders with smaller hands is also available.

Additionally, a lower 48-34T front chainring combination for the TIAGRA 2-piece crankset now appears alongside the existing 52-36T and 50-34T cranksets. This smaller ratio closes the gap to 14T between the big ring and small ring, reducing the number of compensation shifts needed in the rear cassette which makes the new Tiagra a more user-friendly line for beginners.

Finally, a new 12mm E-THRU hubset for disc brakes is included in the Tiagra lineup. When combined with compatible frames, thru-axles increase the rigidity of the wheel and allow for more accurate alignment of disc brakes. This  10 or 11-speed hubset is available for 28H or 32H rims and comes with a disc brake-specific O.L.D. of 110 and 142mm respectively.
