The XT shifter SL-M780 by Shimano - precise shifting with clear indexing
The Shimano XT SL-M780 shifter (clamp version) inspires thanks to " Vivid Index" mechanism with crisp, high-precision shifting operations. It can be used both in 2x10-speed and in 3x10-speed drivetrains - the shifting on the left lever is done via a built-in mode converter. The SL-M780 is a Rapidfire Plus shifter that can be used to shift down several gears at once. It features the 2-Way Release function: The trigger lever can be operated both by pulling with the index finger and pressing with the thumb. In addition there is the Instant Release technology for immediate release of the cable and - with the 10-speed version - Multi Release for the fastest possible gear change in both directions. A removable gear indicator and a cover for it are included.

Dyna-Sys is not only an extra gear. Dyna-Sys is about closer gear ratios for a smoother shifting performance and improved power transfer. It's about riding optimized gear combinations that improve efficiency and durability. Dyna-Sys technology makes the shifting transitions seamless, enabling riders to deliver consistent, efficient power while maintaining traction and momentum.
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.
Instant Release shifting replaces the two-stage click and release shifting you are familiar with. Instant Release shifting releases cable as soon the lever is activated, resulting in the quickest possible gear changes. Whether it is an upshift with a top normal rear derailleur or a downshift with low normal rear derailleur a quicker shift is always a better shift.
Multi Release (10-speed only)
Previous shifting systems shifted faster in one direction than the other. Choosing top normal or low normal always meant sacrificing shifting speed in one direction. Now with Multi Release you can release shift two gears in one stroke. The result - the fastest possible shifting in both directions regardless of rear derailleur choice.
