The SL-RS700 shifters by Shimano - for road bikes with flat handlebars
The Shimano SL-RS700 shifter set is intended for use on road or city bikes with straight handlebars. It consists of a 2x-speed shifter for the left and an 11-speed shifter for the right. The body was made of aluminium, and carbon was additionally used for the levers.
SL-RS700 shifters are equipped with Rapidfire Plus MTB technology, which enables multiple gears to be shifted back simultaneously. They are also equipped with 2-Way Release function, which allows the release lever to be operated by pulling it with the index finger or pushing with the thumb. Also worth noting is Instant Release for super-fast shifting operations, as well as Multi Release for the 11-speed version. In the latter version, one gear can be shifted by pulling and two gears by pressing. Stainless steel cables with wear-reducing SIL-TEC coating and cable housings are supplied.

Rapidfire Plus is suitable for fast shifting. The rider can shift down up to three gears with one shift stroke.
All newer Rapidfire Plus shift levers are equipped with 2-way release (release in two directions). This means that the shift cable is released by pulling with the index finger or pressing with the thumb.
The instant release shifting process replaces the two-stage click and release process. With Instant Release, the cable is released as soon as the lever is operated, thus achieving the fastest possible gear change. Regardless of whether a gear change upwards with a top-normal rear derailleur or a gear change downwards with a low-normal rear derailleur - a faster shift is always a better shift.
Multi Release (only for 11-speed; pull: one step, push: two steps)
With earlier shift systems, gear changes in one direction were faster than in the other. The choice of top-normal or low-normal always meant sacrificing shifting speed in one direction in favour of the other. With Multi Release, two gear changes can now be changed with one lever operation. The result: The fastest possible gear change in both directions, regardless of the type of rear derailleur used.
SIL-TEC is Shimano's extremely low friction surface treatment. SIL-TEC is a superior, advanced coating process that improves system performance by using embedded fluorine particles. SIL-TEC products run smoother and show less wear under all conditions.
