Leading bike brands have been quicker than an electronic gear shift to get the new Shimano 105 R7150 Di2 groupset onto their freshest releases.
The electrification of Shimano’s third-tier 105 mechanical groupset has been long in the offing, leaving the brand trailing its rivals.
SRAM’s electronic equivalent of 105, Rival eTap AXS, was released in 2021. Our technical writer Oscar Huckle has compiled a buyer’s guide comparing Shimano 105 R7150 Di2 to SRAM Rival eTap AXS.
Prior to the launch, we’d been calling for Shimano to follow suit – a wireless, 12-speed 105 groupset topped our 2022 Shimano wish list. Whether an updated mechanical version of 105 will follow remains to be seen.
So far, Shimano 105 Di2 has appeared on a variety of bikes, from some brands’ most prestigious models to middle-market options elsewhere.
While you can order many of these bikes now, some brands have told us their bikes with the new groupset won’t be available until 2023.
By contrast, others said they have no plans to spec a bike with Shimano 105 Di2. In the meantime, here are the bikes bedecked with Shimano’s cheapest electronic groupset. We will update this article with further bikes as details arrive.
Ribble Ultra SLR 105 Di2
Ribble will offer Shimano 105 Di2 across a range of its road bikes.
The Ribble Ultra SLR, the brand’s aero road bike, had only previously been released with Dura-Ace or Ultegra groupsets.
The introduction of the Shimano 105 Di2 R150 12-speed groupset on the new Ribble Ultra SLR 105 Di2 produces a true superbike for about £4,500.
The groupset includes the Shimano 105 R700 12-speed 50-34t chainset and Shimano 105 R7100 11-36t cassette.
The drag-reducing characteristics remain by way of the carbon fibre monocoque frame, carbon forks and integrated carbon aero bar and stem.
The aero seatpost holds a Selle Italia Model X Superflow saddle.
The carbon wheelset is the brand’s own Level DB56 Sport shod with 700 x 28c Continental GP5000 tyres.
The Ribble Ultra SL R 105 Di2 is available to order now from £4,499. The Ribble Ultra SL 105 Di2 is £3,899.

Ribble CGR SL 105 Di2
The release of the Ribble CGR SL 105 Di2 brings the new Shimano groupset to Ribble’s all-road bike.
For £2,799 on the carbon CGR SL 105 Di2, or £3,099 on the titanium CGR Ti 105 Di2, you get Shimano’s 105 Di2 R7100 2x 12-speed hydraulic disc groupset.
As on Ribble’s other 105 Di2 bikes, the chainset is Shimano’s 2x 12-speed 105 R7100 50-34t paired with a 12-speed 11-36t cassette.
The CGR models share a Mavic Allroad Disc 700c wheelset and Schwalbe G-One Allroad 700x40c tan-wall tyres.
