The XTR SL-M9100-I shifter by Shimano - increased adjustment range thanks to I-Spec EVWith the XTR SL-M9100-I 12-speed shifter, Shimano brings I-Spec EV technology into play. This construction allows a combined assembly of shift and brake lever and thus increases the area available for an ergonomic, individual cockpit design. Thus, the SL-M9100-I can be adjusted by 14 mm in longitudinal alignment and by 60° in rotation. As with the clamp version, Shimano has once again improved the intuitive and smooth-running operability to enable the rider to focus solely on the racing action. The levers, consisting of aluminium and carbon, can be reached faster than their predecessor, the M9000, and significantly less effort is required to shift gears. The two rubber contact surfaces provide more grip and the 4x bearings ensure smooth, long-lasting function.
Of course, proven technologies such as Rapidfire Plus - shifting back several gears at once - and 2-Way Release - index finger (pull) or thumb (push) operation - have been retained. The XTR shifter also features Instant Release for super-fast gear changes and Multi Release for the fastest possible gear changes in both directions. A polymer-coated cable and a cable housing are included.

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.
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.
With the I-Spec EV construction, the Shimano shifter can be mounted directly on the brake lever, so that a clamp is not required and the adjustment range can be significantly increased. 14 mm are available with I-Spec EV for longitudinal adjustment and 60° for rotational adjustment, allowing each rider to make a setup to suit their individual anatomy or preferences. I-Spec EV shifters are not compatible with older I-Spec systems.
