If you expect every bit as much out of your equipment as you invest in your training, then you're in the right place. The new XTR group doesn't just ask to be pushed at race pace, it demands it. This is the Shimano XTR M980 I-Spec Direct Mount 10 Speed Rapidfire Pod Shifter Set. ISpec design is developed to attach directly to XTR M985 / M988 brake levers. Shimano sets the benchmark with the next generation of mountain bike shifting, Dyna-Sys 10-speed XTR Rapidfire with Vivid indexing are there slickest shifters yet. Light to the touch but positive and crisp, Vivid indexing provides a constant amount of shift lever force across all 10 sprockets. Instant Release for super fast shifts, delivering the chain to the next gear the moment the lever is actuated with no hesitation. Multi Release allows multiple gear changes from both levers with one sweep, further adding to the speed of shift.
2-Way release allows the upper shift lever to performs the same Multi Shift function but swings in either direction allowing it to be released by the thumb or index finger. Horizontally adjustable forged alloy ISpec mount allows the shifter to be moved in or outboard of the brake lever. Shifter features a precision indexing drum with four sets of ball bearings providing low-friction smooth shifting. One piece anodised alloy release levers increase durability. Composite barrel adjuster. For use with Dyna-Sys 10-speed only. Mode converter for double / triple use.
