The Sora ST-R3000 shift/brake lever by Shimano - for leisure and everyday riding
The Shimano Sora ST-R3000 shift/brake lever has the STI Dual Control function familiar from the Shimano top groupsets, i.e. it can be used for 2x or 9-speed shifting and braking. It is aimed at leisure cyclists, but can also be used for training in winter or for riding to work. The improved Super SLR technology ensures optimum conversion of lever travel into braking force. A shift cable with friction-reducing Optislick coating is supplied.

STI Dual Control (DCL)
DCL stands for Dual Control Lever. It has brake and shifting functions in the system and enables easy operation. Ergonomic innovation is probably more critical to the higher standard performance than the added gearing. The shift internals borrow the robustness from Shimano's MTB technology and are so smooth and effortless that one finger shifts front and rear are possible. Indeed, shifting is the ultimate act of Shimano Total Integration, and simply has to be experienced to be understood.
New Super SLR
SLR stands for Shimano Linear Response. The new Super SLR technology is based on a smoother operation of the brake calliper, lever and cable and optimises brake response and controllability. The lever has the Servo Wave function. This allows the pad to quickly reach the rim. Afterwards there is still long lever travel available for the actual braking. The brake can thus be well modulated. SLR is the decisive factor for Shimano's dual pivot brakes being able to brake more strongly than conventional side-pull brakes.
Optislick cables feature a minimal and uniform electrically coated layer that improves cable routing efficiency and provides excellent corrosion resistance.
