The R8000 Chainset
The HollowTech II 11-speed Ultegra chainset offers an ideal balance of light weight and stiffness, making it the perfect choice for both enthusiast and competitive riders
HollowGlide hollow outer chainring gives vast improvements in rigidity by virtually removing outer chainring flex and hugely improves shift performance, even under high load
The chainring teeth have been developed to work in conjunction with 11-speed HG-EV chains for increased contact to provide greater efficiency and improved power transfer
Industry leading HollowTech II cold forged 4 arm hollow cranks have been evolved for maximum rigidity while reducing weight
The R8000 Rear Derailleur
Ultegra Shadow design rear derailleur with wide link design gives quick accurate shifts and excellent drivetrain efficiency
Sleek appearance with Low profile Shadow design construction reduces risk of damage in a crash
The R8000 brakes
Dual-pivot calliper brake with super SLR-EV design for quick linear response, increased rigidity and improved braking power
Must be used in conjunction with super SLR levers for correct leverage ratio
Enhanced brake arch proportions give a quicker linear response and increased power
Added clearance for compatibility with 28C tire size
The R8000 STI levers
Precision-engineered Ultegra STI levers with carbon levers offer powerful braking and effortless 11-speed shifting, making them the ideal choice for both enthusiast and competitive riders
Shift cables are routed under the bar tape: re-development and positioning of the internal mechanism in combination with Polymer coated cables have made this possible, providing faster, lighter and smoother shifting
Fantastic service from Vanilla to supply a choice on all components at great price and prompt delivery. Thank you.

Claudio Lima said: Ability to choose which components to get
Where most websites out there sell packaged groupsets with minimal configuration options, vanilla bikes lets you choose individuals components (I was looking for a band on front derailleur and no bottom bracket). Both brake and gear cables were also included which is a plus. Very competitive pricing. Only downside is the delivery time that is not as quick as the best in business, but still acceptable.

Karl Doyle said: Fantastic groupset
Just back from a week in the Pyrenees where I put the groupset through some very long days in searing heat and some big big climbs. Performed perfectly and for someone who is a poor descender, the confidence gained from the fantastic brake set up was amazing. Well worth the investment and has taken my bike to another level.

All components arrived in perfect condition and I was emailed with an update on delivery times very quickly after an enquiry. Very happy with the service provided by vanillabikes, I would definitely recommend them to friends.

Joe said: Brilliant customer service
Happy with transaction. Didn't require a BB so left the option blank and straight away Tracy emailed to check whether I'd missed it, which said to me they're 'on the ball'. Delivery wasn't as fast as other distributors but then again I think we are spoiled by delivery speeds of the big companies, so we just aren't used to waiting at all these days. That said communication and customer service more than made up for this, and I'd buy from Vanilla again because of the customer service you get. Also cables are included with groupset, other bigger companies don't include these.
