These shifters were the nicest surprise in the XT 2x10 drive train I put on the bike I just built. I was surprised to find they allow me to shift up two gears at a time in addition to going down as much as four gears at a time. Current generation Shimano XTR, XT and Saint shifters have multiple upshift capability, something I don't believe exists in any SRAM paddle shifters. I was happy with the SRAM X9 drive train on my other bike, but these XT shifters I put on my new bike are a huge upgrade for me.
