The Alfine SL-S700 shifter by Shimano - attractive and stylish
The Shimano Alfine 11-speed shifter SL-S700 with its stylish look not only fits perfectly to every City bike, but it also has the full range of attractive technical refinements: As a Rapidfire Plus lever, which can be used to shift down several gears at once, it features the 2-Way Release function, i.e. the shifter cable can be released by pressing with the thumb or pulling with the index finger. Added to this are the Instant Release technology for super-fast shifts and Multi Release for equally fast shifts in both directions. SL-S700 is compatible with Alfine SG-S7001-11 internally geared hubs with CJ-S700 shifting unit. It has an integrated visual gear indicator and is available in silver or black.

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 newer Rapidfire Plus shifters are equipped with 2-way release (release in two directions). This means that the shifter cable is released by pulling with the index finger or pressing with the thumb.
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.
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.
