The XTR SL-M9000 shifter by Shimano - for optimum, smooth gear selection
The Shimano XTR SL-M9000 shifter (clamp version) features improved ergonomics, anti-slip surfaces and a powerful index shifting function. You will always find the right gear with ease, and a cable with polymer coating reduces the effort required. The housing is made of lightweight aluminium, the levers are made of carbon, so that in Cross Country or Enduro racing, unnecessary grams are left out of it. The left SL-M9000 shifter is suitable for 2x11-speed as well as 3x11-speed drivetrains without a mode converter.
Of course, the XTR shifter is a Rapidfire Plus model, which can shift down several gears at once and has 2-Way Release. The release lever can be operated in two directions by pulling with the index finger or pushing with the thumb. Instant Release provides immediate release and Multi Release (on the 11-speed lever) provides fast gear changes in both directions, with pulling to change one gear and pushing to change two.

The real advantage of the 11-speed drivetrain is that the entire range of ratios is available without having to give up the usual rhythm. Dyna-Sys11 ensures an optimal rhythm both in the flats and in the ascents with " Rhythm Step" gears in the most frequently used range. Drive efficiency is a critical performance indicator for the drivetrain. Dyna-Sys11 means more speed with 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 rider 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 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.
