New 2011 Shimano 5700 Compact Crankset

105 5700 Compact Crank105, the classic workhorse of the Shimano lineup, has been updated for 2011. The new 5700 compact crankset benefits from technologies originally introduced in Dura Ace 7900 and Ultegra 6700. It borrows heavily from the aesthetics of DA and Ultegra but is available in black or silver.

Once piece of tech that has not trickled-down is the outer chainring. Ultegra and Dura Ace get a hollow outer ring to save weight but the 105 big ring is solid. Special profiling on the back of the outer ring allow the chain to glide up smoother and faster than previous versions of 105. Chainring teeth have been re-engineered to integrate with the new 105 5700 chain. The 5700 chain, like Ultegra and DA, is asymmetric. This integration of chain and rings, allows for smoother, more efficient shifts. It is, however, important that you install the chain correctly. You lose those benefits with a reverse installation.

The Shimano 105 group has always been a great value for cyclists who want pro-level performance and durability, but don’t need the lightest components available. The new 105 5700 crankset will be especially compelling to those who love the look and features of Ultegra 6700, but are on a more limited budget.
