Di2 SW-R600 Remote Climbing Shifter

Climbing doesn't just require strong legs and a lean frame. It also necessitates clean shifting, especially if you want to jump to attack. If you currently use Di2 or are considering an upgrade, the SW-R600 Remote Climbing Shifter is a part you'll want to add. 

Unless you're one of the few pros who are able to stand for long stretches, you most likely sit and grasp the tops of your bars while climbing. And although it's more comfortable for the long haul, it makes quick shifting difficult. Shimano has created an electronic quick shift that zip-ties to the right handlebar so you're able to shift without having to move your hand to the hoods.

The Shimano Di2 SW-R600 Remote Climbing Shifter is compatible with Dura-Ace 9070, Ultegra 6770, and Ultegra 6870 Di2 Systems. It is not compatible with Dura-Ace 7970. It will not work alone as a primary shifting unit. The total length is 265mm and it features a built-in E-tube wire. 

  • Top-mounted Di2 shifter for gear changes when not riding the hoods
  • For cyclists who would like to shift from the tops as well as the hoods
  • Positions next to the stem to be within reach of the thumb
  • Compatible with Dura-Ace 9070, Ultegra 6770, and Ultegra 6870 groupsets
  • Built-in E-Tube wire (265mm) for convenient setup

Great for climbing

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This is a great remote shifter for climbing on the tops. It is easy to install. Once you find the best position on your tops to attach it, it makes climbing while on the tops a breeze. No more moving my hand to the hood to down shift while climbing. The buttons are programmable so you can choose which one shifts down the cassette and which one shifts up the cassette.

Works very well

Threw this on my new UDi2 bike and haven't looked back. Convenient location when climbing on the tops. Clean install plugging into the right lever. Just be sure you're in the right front right before you begin your climb.

Could I use separate shifters to control the front and rear derailluers on my tt bike? Also, what are the dimensions of the unit?

Using the E-tube software, or the older programmer, I'm led to understand that you can programme these shifter s for front or rear derailleur. In fact my LBS reckons you could probably right it to put the kettle on. Not sure the weight penalty for that option would be worth it, though

hi! Does it come with the wire to connect to the shifters?

Yes, they are hard wired in.

To function does this plug into the junction box (5 port) or does it go into the shifter?

I recommend this excellent synopsis on the entire Di2 system: http://carltonbale.com/shimano-di2-everything-you-need-to-know/ From that link, which answers your question: "[SW-R600 Remote Climbing Shifters] can be used in addition to the Dual Control Brake Lever/Shifter, or can be used on their own by plugging directly into a SM-EW90-A 3-Port Junction or SM-EW90-B Dura-Ace 5-Port Junction."
