Shimano M820 Saint 10 Speed Shift Lever

Featuring the ultimate in DH-specific design, the SL-M820 Saint 10spd shifter is the backbone of your drivetrain! The DH-specific design includes longer levers with textured paddles running on dual sealed bearings that contribute to an easier and smoother shift. Shimano designed this shifter using technology borrowed from the development of XTR, but tailored to the unique needs of DH World Cup racing. Built with a weatherproof design that shrugs off grime and wet conditions, it's incredibly survivable, tough and built to last. The Saint shifter delivers solid, lightning-fast, reliable shifts that you can trust when you're putting down the power.
  • Compatible with Shimano Dyna-Sys 10 speed drivetrains
  • Long, textured levers for ultimate grip and easier shifting effort
  • Low friction, multi bearing design
  • DH race proven antiskid technology
  • Vivid Index for best shift tactile feedback
  • Instant Release (gear release shifts into gear immediately after pressing the trigger instead of shifting after releasing the trigger)
  • Multi-Release (upshift into one or two harder gears at a time with thumb trigger press, single release on index finger pull)
  • Polymer-coated cable for longer-lasting, smoother action at the lever and more accurate shifts
  • Weight: 123g (approx.)

Great shifter
I'm absolutely happy with my Shimano Saint group set. This shifter has nice long levers, the ability to downshift two gears with the push of the lever and instant snappy shifts. I had zero issues shifting into my desired gears and they were smooth and effortless.

great shifter negitive review here is wrong
I have used this product for over 3 years without problems and it is mated to an xt rd and xt 10 speed cassette..... the other guy with a negative comment about this exact setup must have had a cable or housing kink issue mine is has and i suspect will continue to work flawlessly the only better 10s shifter i have used is xtr but more $ and just a little smother this is a better gram/$/performance value

Saint M820 Shifter
Overall, an excellent shifter. Longer levers than normal and textured, which I like, but that is a preference thing. Very smooth ball bearing action. Double release on the the thumb push lever. Detents are very well defined for Shimano, but not as sharp as SRAM. I use it on my xc 1x10 because I wanted a shimano drivetrian with the clickiest (SRAM like) shifter.

PROS: Attractive Design, Positive Detents, Easy To Install, Durable, Smooth

CONS: Pricey

BEST USES: Racing, Mountain Biking

shimano what do u expect?
Shimano. Solid clean shifter. Down shifting very cool, push or pull double sided lever. If you like the push downshift like sram it works better that way. I will say the thumb lever is long. I got use to shimanos other sized levers and mounted them in between the grip and brake lever. With the br lever well over. This shifter i beleive was designed to be mounted inside the brake, my issue is its to far away for how i mount my brakes, and too crowded outside the brake lever. But again i mount my brake a bit far from the grips for one finger. You results may vary.

Just perfect for 1x10!
When I first converted over to 1x10 years ago, I chose this shifter to pair with a Saint derailleur. It's such a smooth, accurate and reliable shifter, and I continued using it on 2 other bikes with XT and XTR derailleurs. I now have it on a 3rd bike (5010CCv2) running with an XT 11sp derailleur and 10sp XT cassette and it continues to perform perfectly. For my riding style, I've found no reason to move to anything beyond a 10sp drivetrain and this is THE shifter imo. The price has dropped significantly so I might stock up a spare, but it's just been so darn robust that I really doubt I need a spare :)

Awesome
Great shifter for the price. Has a ball bearing instead of a bushing, just like the XTR 10 speed, and also has a longer lever for upshifts to compensate for the clutch.

Def a better option over the XTR IMO.

Fabulous shifter. I could not be more pleased. It works great and shifting is precise. Take the time to set it up right, and shifting becomes effortless.

Super smooth 10 Speed Shifting
These are much better than the 10 speed XT shifters, on par with the new 11-speed stuff. I could not make 11-speed work on my bike so I went back to my modified 1x10 with these as my shifters and it has made all the difference in the world.

Will this work with an XT RD-M786 derailleur ?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, I've used it with an XT and XTR 10sp derailleur, and I'm currently using it with an XT 11sp derailleur on a 10sp cassette. Has worked perfectly in these applications.
Does this purchase include the shifter cable, housing, and ferrules or is it just the shifter pod?
dogdoctor on Sep 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When I bought this last summer it came with the inner housing attached and a small coil of housing.
