The Shimano Saint shifter SL-M820 - optimised classic for Downhill use


The Shimano Saint 10-speed SL-M820 (clamp version) has been ergonomically optimised compared to its predecessor and has been equipped with a longer, non-slip lever. It now has a 4x bearings, which provide for lower friction and thus less wear in tough Downhill and Freeride use. The defined index shifting function has of course remained.
The SL-M820 also features 2-Way Release as the Rapidfire Plus shifter, which allows up to three gear steps to be shifted down at once, i.e. the shift cable can be released both by pulling with the index finger and with thumb pressure. In addition, there is Multi Release technology for the fastest possible gear changes in both directions (pull: one step, push: two steps) as well as Instant Release for immediate shifting. The Saint shifter consists of an aluminium housing with an aluminium-plastic and a steel lever.

Technology:

Rapidfire Plus
Rapidfire Plus is a type of Shimano shift lever construction that has been common in the mountain bike sector since 1985. Two levers, the main lever and the release lever, are used instead of a twist shifter. Rapidfire Plus shift levers, as the name suggests, ensure fast shifting. In addition, depending on the model, it is possible to downshift up to three gears with one shift stroke.

2-Way-Release
With 2-Way-Release, the shifter can be pressed and pulled to shift to the smaller sprocket or chainring. This allows you to adjust the shifting process to your personal preferences. Most Rapidfire Plus shifters are equipped with 2-Way Release.

Instant Release
With Instant Release, the spring and thus the cable are released immediately when the lever is actuated, which ensures an enormously fast shifting process. The delay caused by a two-step shifting process with click and release is eliminated, so that the gear change is considerably accelerated and improved.

Multi Release
With the Multi Release, which only affects the right-hand shift lever, two gears can be shifted with one actuation of the release lever without loss of shifting speed. This is independent of whether you use a Top-Normal or a Low-Normal rear derailleur.
