    So currently I am running a shimano 105 and I was wondering what exactly makes the ultegra better?

    Mostly weight.

    This is achieved through using different grade materials such as alloy bolts instead of steel.

    I think the biggest difference would be in the chains and cassettes in terms of wear. There might be a slight improvement with performance but only when you took the group nearer to it's limits.

    105 is a solid, workhorse group.
