Shimano’s new TIAGRA group set gives grassroots and new road cyclists the opportunity to ride a group set inspired by professional riders, whether for challenging sportives, everyday commutes or long weekend rides. For the first time in its history TIAGRA supports internal cable routing, which gives the road bike a much more clean and professional look. Along with internal cable routing TIAGRA has also adopted the iconic four-arm crank design. The new TIAGRA shifting platform provides virtually effortless and accurate shifting operation.
TIAGRA 4700 runs on a 10-speed drivetrain operated by improved ergonomic shift/brake levers (STI). The slim and compact bracket grip offers easy reach to the brake/shift lever from the hood position and a comfortable lever feeling for a wide range of riders.
With the new TIAGRA 4700 group set Shimano offers a great balance between performance, easy operation and low maintenance. The new rear derailleur has a revised cable pitch which offers precise and long-lasting shifting performance. Meanwhile the new TIAGRA brake system offers consistent all-round control in all conditions. Compared to the previous generation the braking power has increased by 30%, while the modulation of the brakes has improved too.
