Rapidfire Plus
Rapidfire Plus has been used by mountain bikers since 1985. Rapidfire Plus is still the first choice for a wide range of riding groups, from Cross Country racers to Freeriders and Downhillers. Rapidfire Plus is suitable for fast shifting. The rider can shift down up to three gears with one shift stroke. All new Rapidfire Plus shift levers, from XTR to Deore LX, are equipped with 2-Way Release. This means that the shift cable is released by pulling with the index finger or pressing with the thumb.

Instant Release
Instant Release shifting replaces the two-stage click and release shifting you are familiar with. Instant Release shifting releases cable as soon the lever is activated, resulting in the quickest possible gear changes. Whether it is an upshift with a top normal rear derailleur or a downshift with low normal rear derailleur a quicker shift is always a better shift.

Multi Release
Previous shifting systems shifted faster in one direction than the other. Choosing top normal or low normal always meant sacrificing shifting speed in one direction. Now with Multi Release you can release shift two gears in one stroke. The result - the fastest possible shifting in both directions regardless of rear derailleur choice.

2-Way Release
The Rapidfire Plus shifter release lever is commonly called a trigger because it is operated like a pistol, by pulling toward the grip. The release lever of Rapidfire Plus shifters from Shimano Alivio to XTR can be operated in this same manner but adds the ability to activate a release shift by pushing with the thumb.

I-Spec EV
With the I-Spec EV construction, the Shimano shift lever can be mounted directly on the brake lever, so that a clamp is not required and the adjustment range can be significantly increased. 14 mm are available with I-Spec EV for longitudinal adjustment and 20° for rotational adjustment, allowing each rider to make a setup to suit their individual anatomy or preferences. I-Spec EV handles are not compatible with older I-Spec systems.

Optislick cables feature a minimal and uniform electrically coated layer that improves cable routing efficiency and provides excellent corrosion resistance.

Original Shimano parts guarantees that all components work perfectly for optimum performance and maximum safety and longevity.
