Easy shifting
Went with non Ispec just in case I needed the braze on. Pay attention if your brakes are Ispec compartible. They did not take much space on handlebar . Upgraded from X9 shifting, what a difference, to easy, smooth shifting.

Great Shifter
Great shifter, sturdy, strong, crisp. There is a small knob on the back of the front shifter that you turn with a flat head screwdriver, or even a fingernail, to switch between 2x and 3x shifting.

Great shifter. No problems noted. Multiple gear shifts per lever pull are a plus.

Accurate shifting
I decided to spend the extra $$ to get the most out of my XTR rear derailleur. My prior SLX shifter couldn't handle the tension of the derailleur and would skip or overshift in the mid gears going up or down. This puppy works perfectly. It's almost too soft compared to my SLX so I have to get used to tapping it instead of pressing. I'm happy.

is this a rear shifter?
Rean L on Jan 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that looks like the right side shifter and controls the rear derailleur. Mind you that it's a 10 speed.
Will it work one by single chainring?
A shopper on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. This shifter only controls the rear mech, so it is independent of that you run on the front
Upgrading my scott 2016 Genium. Currently has SLX SL-M670-I Rapidfire Plus / 2 way release Ispec clamp. Is this xtr shifter (left & right) the right model?

Thanks, David
david on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: you would actually know the answer on the mounting better than i would. All i can say is i live in Reno NV and when it gets really cold the shifters wont shift and i had xtr's on my last bike so don't wast the money on XTR
What is "I-spec"? I want to replace the stock SLS shifters on my 2015 Specialized Epic carbon expert - it has an xtr cassette and derailleur - thanks!
Guy C on Apr 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I-Spec is a Shimano mounting standard that allows direct attachment to a compatible Shimano brake lever without an extra bar clamp. For this shifter you will require an I-Spec B compatible brake such as XT BR-M785 or XTR BR-M980 or BR-M985. You cannot mount an I-Spec shifter without a compatible brake lever.
It says "left, 10 speed only". Shouldn't it say "left, 2/3 rings"? It is it a left side rear shifter?
Dave on Jul 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It actually reads, "Left only, 10 speed." We are indicating that this is only a left shifter, not both left and right, and that it is compatible with Shimano's 10 speed drivetrain components. Hope that helps clear it up. Cheers!
