The SLX SL-M7000-B-I shifter by Shimano - I-Spec and Rapidfire Plus
The Shimano SLX SL-M7000-B-I shifter can be combined with older brake levers on the handlebars to save space thanks to the I-Spec (B) mount. This also saves weight and ensures a tidy cockpit. In addition, it is possible to flexibly adjust the shifter's position. Like the clamp version, the SL-M7000-B-I convinces with stable shifting processes, ergonomic design and minimal operating forces. This is based on the proven Rapidfire Plus technology, with which up to three gears can be shifted back with one shift stroke, as well as the 2-Way Release function. This enables the trigger lever to be actuated by pulling with the index finger or pressing with the thumb, thus releasing the low-friction Optislick cable in two directions. The SLX shifter is available in three versions - for left as 2/3x shifter (no mode converter required) and for right as 10-speed or 11-speed shifter.

Dyna-Sys11 (SL-M7000-11 only)
The real advantage of 11-speed is the ability to have all the range you require without sacrificing the rhythm you need. Dyna-Sys11 maximizes rhythm while driving and climbing with " rhythm step" gears in the most frequently used range. Driving efficiency is a key drivetrain performance indicator. Dyna-Sys11 means more speed for the same effort.
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.
Integration mounting system of shifter and brake lever. It can realise clean appearance, more space for the handle bar area and lightweight.
Note: The I-Spec shifters have a new mount as of 2014 (version B). First of all, there is no compatibility with brake levers with old I-Spec mounts. However, they can be made compatible with the old I-Spec brake levers using a connecting bolt, if the handlebar grip diameter is less than 32 mm. For handlebar grip diameters from 32 to 36 mm, it is not possible to combine the new shifter with old I-Spec brake levers.
Optislick cables feature a minimal and uniform electrically coated layer that improves cable routing efficiency and provides excellent corrosion resistance.
