The Shimano XT SL-M8000-I shifter set consists of a left-hand shifter (2x and 3x without mode converter) and a right-hand shifter (11-speed), both of which can be flexibly adjusted in position and rotation. This is made possible by the I-Spec II design, which of course also allows the space-saving integration of a compatible brake lever. This ensures the greatest possible flexibility and a tidy appearance on the handlebars. The SL-M8000-I features ergonomic, differently structured levers and a further improved Vivid Index mechanism – always known for crisp feedback. The set comes with Optislick cables, which reduce the effort required for shifting by 20%.
Thanks to Rapidfire Plus technology, the shifters can shift down several gears at a time and features the 2-Way Release function, which enables the shift cable to be released both by pulling with the index finger and by pressing with the thumb. Of course there are also Instant Releases for accelerated gear changes and – with the 11-speed version – Multi Releases for the fastest possible shifting in both directions.
