The Shimano FD-6870 Ultegra Di2 front derailleur's operation is pioneering, smooth shifting is guaranteed thanks to a microchip communication link with the gear levers. What's more, shifting the rear derailleur automatically trims the front derailleur. The biggest difference you will notice is just how much quicker and effortlessly smoother shifting on the front chainrings is, even under load.
The difference in the effort and time to actuate the shift between mechanical and Di2 is truly staggering. The removal of traditional mechanical cables in favour of electrical wires not only eliminates poor shifting caused by contaminates, corrosion and stretching, but provides effortless gear shifts.
The front derailleur also trims automatically; the cage moves in response to the position of the rear derailleur on the cassette to ensure no chain rub and a quiet unobtrusive ride, enabling you to concentrate on the road ahead.

the competition is hot and furious... plenty of online companies are offering discounts.. and if you are wanting to built that dream bike of yours with Shimano's affordable Di2 groupset, then the 6800 Ultegra is your best bet! I bought these here because PBK's competitors just cannot beat their price (for now! So keep vigilant!) This front D is slightly heavier than the Dura Ace model, but it gets the job done. Although its Di2, you still need to fiddle with the Top and bottom limiting screws, but beyond that, everything is plug and play and if you venture further into Shimano's software, you can make more thorough adjustments. Just hook up your laptop to the Di2 junction box. Plenty of videos out there on You-tube and other dedicated bike sites to help you dial in the adjustments. Ride safe!
