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.

The perfect shifter
I paired this with an XT derailleur. Once I got it set up, I was blown away with how precise the shifting is. Hardly any input from my thumb causes an immediate and perfect shift every time. Even when grabbing multiple gears at once, up or down. If you can swing it, buy an M9000.

Shimano xtr 11 speed shifter
One of the Best! I had it set up on my Santacruz Tallboy LT with One up 50T expander on a shimano 1x11-42T cassette and a 11 speed xtr shifter. SHIFTS SO SMOOTH! AS I SAID ONE OF THE BEST!

Smooth operation - slim design
Smooth crisp shifting for an 11 speed setup. Lightweight and fairly affordable for an xtr. Takes up little real estate on the bar.

Super sharp
I've been using XTR for years - multiple generations. Somehow, the engineers at Shimano have made this shifter EVEN better. It's just so quick and precise and positive feeling. Excellent stuff.

Rapid and total control.
Bought this shifter to work with an XT 11spd rear derailleur. Gives me the ability to shift 5 down and 3 up.
Great to use when sudden trail changes happen.
Have found it very reliable over 10 rides. And not had to make any barrel adjustments since I installed.

PROS: Feels good, Active

This shifter is awesome. I had xtr about 10 years ago and it seemed a little flimsy So I had been running SRAM xo. I found this at a great price and I thought I would try it and finally upgrade to 1x11. I am so glad I did. The shifts are super crisp and perfect. Impressive shimano. The shifter buttons have a nice feel to them.
Jenson was awesome. Great price and quick delivery!

PROS: Great Components, Lightweight, Rugged

BEST USES: Cross Country, Single Track

WIllthis for work for xt?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it works for XT
Does this come with the outer cable housing, or just he inner cable?
jay z on Jan 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine came with inner cable only... no housing.
Will this m9000 11speed shifter work on a 10 speed bike?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When you say a 10 speed bike, do you mean a bike which currently has a 10 speed drivetrain installed? If so, you will need a new rear hub with an 11 speed freehub body, an 11 speed rear derailleur, and 11 speed chain. You might get away with your 10 speed crankset, front derailleur and front shifter.
Would this shifter work with an SLX 11 speed rear derallieur?
Pat W on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: To begin, i would consult with Shimano or a mechanic on this. With the said, I have commingled Shimano parts years back and it worked great. I suspect the same as the set up for a shifter to derailleur seems straight forward. This shift is the best I've used. Versatile and accuracy. Smooth.
How does change 2speed to 3speed and opposite?
Biking on Oct 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's super easy to switch between 2 and 3 chain rings. There is screw on the bottom of the shifter to switch between 2 or 3 chain rings.

Is this shifter ispec II compatible?
Drew on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This shifter is a bar clamp type, but Jenson USA sells the I-Spec II version. It's linked below. You will need SLX M7000 XT M8000 or XTR M9000 series brakes to use the I-spec II shifter. It is not compatible with earlier I-Spec brakes.

I dont know if it was alreadyasked but is this the rapid fire version of XTR shifter?
Bryanchkins on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what you mean. All of Shimano's mountain bike shifters are a "Rapid Fire" design. Just refers to the fact that they have multi-ratcheting control levers. The shifter does 4 downshifts and up to 2 upshifts at a time with a thumb push release, or a single upshift with the index finger release.
is it compatible with Shimano 105 front and rear?
Wayne A on Jan 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. Shimano mountain and road groups have different pull ratios.
will this work with a XT m8000 rear deraullier as a 1x11spd set up?
Huh on Jun 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it should work
What is the cable pull on the front shifter? Thanks
N on May 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Dyna-Sys, so it will work with older Shimano 10 speed MTB Dyna-Sys front derailleurs and 11 speed MTB Dyna-Sys front derailleurs. It is mode convertible from 2x to 3x as well.
does this include the linking cable to the derailuer? or can i use stock one, going from 10spd to 11spd conversion
dnavarro on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We highly suggest using the included Polymer-coated inner cable that comes with the shifter.
