Shimano XTR SL-M9000 11SPD Shift Lever

Shimano XTR SL-M9000 Shift Lever

Focus and determination defines you. You are streamlined and efficient. You embrace the most difficult challenges and refuse to give up. You never make excuses, you never stop trying. You conquer mountains from the bottom up, never satisfied with only the descent. You crush the whole loop, every pedal stroke a relentless assault on gravity, your competitors and your personal records. You are XTR and XTR is you. Seriously fast. Confident. Experienced. XTR is committed to rewarding your every effort and has the pedigree to deliver. Dripping with performance, the XTR M9000 drivetrain will not only transfer every watt of energy from pedal to wheel, it will seamlessly shift between perfectly spaced gears allowing you to maintain critical rhythm and momentum over any terrain. You tell yourself you can race without XTR, but you won’t. Never second guess your first instinct.

As the main points of contact with your drivetrain, your shifters play a crucial role in your bike's performance and your overall ride experience. Efficient shifting can make or break a good ride. With the latest generation of the XTR shifter, Shimano has ratcheted the industry expectation up a notch with a suite of improvements that are both aesthetically and mechanically pleasing. Shift effort is decreased by 20% by lightweight dual-textured carbon levers, and improved vivid index mechanism, and a more ergonomic release lever. Dynasys 11 technology responds beautifully, pulling more cable per shift and pairing flawlessly with the new line of XTR M9000 derailleurs. Clever language aside, the SL-M9000 is the lightest, fastest, and most efficient Shimano MTB shift lever ever. If you won't settle for anything but the best, look no further than the Shimano XTR SL-M9000 shift lever.

Features:

  • 20% lower shift effort
  • Improved vivid index mechanism
  • Longer carbon, textured levers
  • Ball bearing construction
  • Dynasys 11 shifting
  • Multi / Instant and 2-Way release
  • Front shifter: 2/3 speed compatible
  • Polymer-coated inner cable included
  • Rear shifter: 11 speed
  • Weight: 110g each

As always, Shimano continues to crank out some great components. This shifter is smooth and precise, as well as light and stylish. The only issue I found is it hasn't responded to my friend request. Oh well. I does what I want it to and is finger and thumb friendly and that's all I need.

So I decided to go Shimano 1X and used mostly XT components with the exception of this shifter. I chose it partly bc the XT version comes with the indicator which gets in the way of how I like to set up my controls (brakes set far in to where I only use my index fingers for braking), and by the time I found and purchased the blanking plate to get rid of the indicator, well, the XTR shifter wasn't that much more.

Yes, it does ooze sexiness. What surprised me was the fact that the mount that attaches it to the handlebars attaches to the unit itself with one screw (assuming for weight). So, when you push the lever to shift down, then pull to shift up, the unit has some play in it where it rotates around that screw. Not a big deal I guess but I expected more from XTR components. Also, the SLX that it replaced seemed to be much smoother and more ergonomic, especially on trigger up shifts.

Granted, after a couple rides I no longer notice the play in the unit, I just expected more.

                          I am a SRAM gripshift shifter fan, so I am still missing to change 8-9 shifts with one single twist of your hand (SRAM) instead of pushing twice with yout thumb (shimano XTR). But i am happy with realiabily.

                                          On the bottom of the shifter there is a selector. It changes the throw to adjust for the difference in distance between the sprockets on a double and a triple chain ring.

                                          We highly suggest using the included Polymer-coated inner cable that comes with the shifter.
