What is the hierarchy of Shimano components?

Which is better Claris or Sora?

The Sora groupset does indeed sit above Claris in the Shimano pantheon. Shimano carefully engineers each level to be incrementally better than the one below it, in terms of features, weight and quality of materials. You should be able to feel a difference between the two groupsets in terms of shifting.

Which is better tiagra or Sora?

Essentially, the Tiagra is a better option if you want a slightly lighter and quicker groupset. If you want a mix of performance and value, opt for the Sora. If you are looking for more performance (without having an 11-speed groupset), opt for the Tiagra.

Which Shimano groupset is the best?

Shimano 105 is considered Shimano’s first performance groupset, and for many people it is the best option in combining performance, value and longevity.
