The invention of Shimano Flight Deck was somewhat of a revolution in shifting. It used the already-popular STI shifting technology that was introduced with 8-speed component sets like Dura-Ace, Ultegra, and 105. But then, there was so much more: in each shifter, left and right, indicators were attached near the cable attachment point to the shifters to show riders what gear they were riding in. This was accomplished by use of clear, plastic sleeves through which a red indicator could be easily viewed, whether riding on the hoods or in the drops. The indicators moved when the shifter cables moved, that is, when gears were shifted. With Flight Deck, there was an integration with electronics so that there was communication between the shifters and Flight Deck compatible speedometer/computer heads. On top of all that, the Shimano Flight Deck sure shifted smoothly, especially in the Dura-Ace and Ultegra levels. Shimano bike componentry has since moved on to electronic, wireless shifting with Di2; but the Flight Deck platform of shifters brought out by Shimano was a huge development for bikers in the world of shifting technology.
