Technically, in the hierarchy of the big brands, these are the XT equivalent. Realistically, though, they are quite a bit less refined than XT shifters. These shifters are durable. And they shift. XT, however, offers that light 2:1 touch, the option of using your thumb or your trigger finger for downshifts, and simpler internals should you ever need to perform maintenance.
