    2018 S3 Di2 Bluetooth

    Hi, does anyone know if the Shimano Di2 R8050 fitted as an option in some of the 2018 S3’s includes the unit that provides bluetooth connection for firmware updates etc? I have tried Shimano and UK dealers and some say yes and others say no as it’s an extra to be fitted later..... Does anyone know in the Cervélo world? Cheers.

    Hi It depends on the battery, the latest ones have the Bluetooth chip but are generally more expensive. The codes are available on Shimano website, might be worth checking before purchase

    It does not only depend on the battery. In addition to the correct battery, you also need the bluetooth/ANT+ unit (EW-WU111), which I hardly believe is installed in any stock Cervelo. It wasn't installed on my 2018 R5 Disc Dura Ace Di2. At least my bike already had a compatible battery (BT-DN110) so the only thing needed was the bluetooth/ANT+ unit (EW-WU111 - costs ~$80).

    The 8050 system would include the latest battery BT-DN110. This newer battery has increased memory space to allow for increased memory space required for bluetooth operation. The battery itself does not transmit or receive any ANT+ or BT signals.

    Xriss is correct in regard to the need for the EW-WU111 D-Fly wireless unit to connect wireless devices. Note that there is an older D-Fly unit that is only ANT+ compliant. Make certain you get the latest model. 

     Lastly, you will need an additional E-tube cable to install the EW-WU111 inline in your system.
