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.)

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.

Warning!

This shifter, XTR RD and new XT cas- do not agree. The shifter is pulling more cable than it should. Can only get 7 jumpy speeds out of the 10 speed drivetrain. Read complete review

Very disapointed with this product. This is the first time I had compatibility issues like this w/ shimano.

      Comments about Shimano M820 Saint Shift Lever:

      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

        Comments about Shimano M820 Saint Shift Lever:

        Saint has great long levers and smooth shifts. Be aware that pushing the smaller lever you can grab 2 gears but pulling it allows only 1 by design. This is different than XT M780 but is more in line with newer XT/XTR 11-speed.

            This shifter was easy to setup with an XT plus RD and XT cassette. Most other vendors listed this shifter including cable and housing. Jenson's add did not mention cable or housing. I Emailed Jenson to inquire about cable and housing. The reply I received said it came with cable only. I was ok with that as my previous housing was in good shape. Well I was quite surprised when it arrived including cable and housing.

              Comments about Shimano M820 Saint Shift Lever:

              I was in the market for a cheap, but good, shifter to finish off my 1x10 bike build. I came across the M820 and it was just what I needed. The shifts are crisp but smooth. The levers are the perfect length mounted on the inside of my XT brakes. No indicator makes for a lighter and cleaner cockpit. Comparing costs to other shifters in the Shimano line, it's really worth the money for the quality.
