Shimano Di2 Gets Wireless Capability

Shimano announces the launch of their new D-Fly technology that brings wireless capability to it’s  Di2 groupsets.

The new D-Fly Data Management system is compatible with Dura-Ace 9070, Ultegra 6870 Di2 and Ultegra 6770 E-tube groupsets. The D-Fly simply plugs into the E-tube wiring and from there – is powered via the main Di2 battery.

(The wireless unit weighs only 5g – measuring just 38mm long, 25mm wide and 12.5mm high)

D-Fly uses a proprietary private ANT wireless protocol to communicate data to the new PRO Scio ANT+ cycling computer. Shimano says the computer lets you monitor gear position and battery life from the Di2 groupset, as well as the other typical functions most cycling computers provide. It adds that future compatibility with Mio and other computers is planned for this spring as well.

The PRO Scio computer is currently available with a retail price of approximately $165, and it’s available in both black and white.
