Eurobike 2014 | Shimano + Garmin = Even More Integrated Handlebars

Shimano and Garmin Seem Poised For a Partnership Where Dura-Ace 9070 Di2 Levers Could Control Garmin Edge Computers

(Article and pictures from Bikeradar.com)

Currently, newer Garmin Edge computers like the 810 and 1000 can be wirelessly controlled via a Garmin remote. The round remote allows riders to navigate through the various Edge pages while riding in the aero extensions. This works for triathlon riders, and for road riders, the remote can be placed near the hands, but it doesn't offer anything like the convenience of being able to control the computer from the shifters themselves.

Years ago, Shimano had its own Flight Deck computer with wired, integrated control buttons that sat on the inside of the shifter hoods. Shimano does not have a wireless computer-control option — but the levers do have a button.

"It's just a happy accident [that there are buttons on the hoods]," Shimano's road product manager Dave Lawrence jokingly told Garmin staffers at Eurobike. "We were just waiting for you." Soon after, both parties ducked into the back room of Garmin's booth.

Shimano PR spokesperson Nick Legan told BikeRadar that "more information would be coming next week at Interbike," but could not comment beyond that.

Only the newest Shimano Dura Ace 9070 levers have the hood-top buttons; mechanical Dura-Ace and newer Ultegra Di2 levers do not.

Stay tuned for more updates from Eurobike and Interbike (next week!)
