I've got Shimano R785 on one of my bikes and was wondering if it's worth it now to upgrade to the newer Ultegra R8070, I like the idea of the more ergo shifters. How much of a weight savings is there in shifters/brake calipers. Haven't really found anything definitive online. Thanks!

8070 levers without oil: 2x 182g weighted by me. And yes, the shape is good for small hands.
