With the XTR SL-M9100-I 12-speed shifter, Shimano brings I-Spec EV technology into play. This construction allows a combined assembly of shift and brake lever and thus increases the area available for an ergonomic, individual cockpit design. Thus, the SL-M9100-I can be adjusted by 14 mm in longitudinal alignment and by 60° in rotation. As with the clamp version, Shimano has once again improved the intuitive and smooth-running operability to enable the rider to focus solely on the racing action. The levers, consisting of aluminum and carbon, can be reached faster than their predecessor, the M9000, and significantly less effort is required to shift gears. The two rubber contact surfaces provide more grip and the 4x bearings ensure smooth, long-lasting function.
Of course, proven technologies such as Rapidfire Plus - shifting back several gears at once - and 2-Way Release - index finger (pull) or thumb (push) operation - have been retained. The XTR shifter also features Instant Release for super-fast gear changes and Multi Release for the fastest possible gear changes in both directions. A polymer-coated cable and cable housing are included.
