Announcement: VeloBase.com will be moving to a new server at some point later this week. During the transition period I will be locking out add and update functionality so that no changes are lost. During that period, you may be redirected to the Login page if you attempt to make an update. I will update the Announcement here once the process is completed. Posted: 11/23/20 02:01 PM CST

General Information
Group Family General Info: Shimano Dura-Ace was introduced in the mid 1970's as their flagship road racing group.  While their early generations often found itself on a very wide range of bicycles, by the 1980's the group was starting to make a name for itself as a true competitor of Campagnolo's Record group.
General Info:

Shimano's top of the line race quality component group in the mid 80's through the early 90's. The 7400 series Dura-Ace group saw several interations including the introduction of 6 then 7 and finally 8 speed SIS shifting. Eventually upgraded with 7410 parts before finally being completely replaced with 7700.

Dura-Ace was developed to give the professional racing cyclist a fraction-of-a-second advantage that can spell the difference between victory and defeat. Advanced functions like 8 speed SIS, Super SLR brakes and Shimano Total Integration provide the most refined feeling of control available in a group today. Ultra high-precision mechanisms, quality materials and rugged construction assure that Dura-Ace takes all the punishment that pro-level road racing can dish out. (1991 Dealer Manual).
