The Shimano SL-RS700 shifters - if you don't ride drop bars on your bike
The Shimano SL-RS700 is a groupless shifter that can be used to shift either 2-speed at the front or 11-speed at the rear. It was designed for use on road or city bikes with flat handlebars, i.e. without a drop bar.
The SL-RS700 is equipped with MTB's Rapidfire Plus technology, allowing multiple gears to be downshifted at once, and features the 2-Way Release function, which allows the release lever to be operated with the index finger (pull) or thumb (push). 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. The housing of the shifter is made of aluminium, and carbon was also used for the levers. An inner cable with wear-reducing SIL-TEC coating is included.

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.
