Shimano Deore XT SL-M8000 shifter: enhanced feel and ergonomics, 20% reduction in shift effort
As arguably the most tactile part of Shimano’s new DEORE XT M8000 groupset, the shifters play a vital aesthetic and ergonomic part. The dimpled long sweep paddle, grooved release paddle and OPTISLICK cable provide a 20% decrease in shift effort, crucial for the long distance endurance racer, and create an enhanced interface between rider and controls.
The 2-Way Multi Release mechanism provides a secondary gear change option whilst an improved Vivid indexing mechanism guarantees shift accuracy. Next to the classic clamp assembly the levers are available in two further mounting options. The levers are available for classic clamp assembly. I-Spec II (SL-M8000-I) for new XT and XTR and I-Spec B-type (SL-M8000-B-I) for older or lower grade brake levers, catering for different brake choices.
The classic clamp version will be delivered.The lever offer removable optical gear display.
Instant Release allows faster shifts as it instantly releases the cable when the trigger is activated.
Multi-Release(only at right lever) allows shifting four gears at once in both directions.
The levers are also equipped with 2-Way Release for different riding styles or shifting (indexfinger or thumb) from various riding positions. The upper lever still performs the same function, but now it swings both ways. Pull it with your finger or push it with your thumb – you choose.
