Since 1991 the letters XTR have been synonymous with top of the line. There is no need to crack open the thesaurus looking for big words when describing an XTR component because those three letters tell you all you need to know.
The latest generation of XTR bumps the gear count up to 10 on the rear and gives you a choice of either double or triple shifting up front thanks user friendly mode selector.
At the lever, Shimano's new Vivid Index technology means shifting has never been quicker and more precise. A redesigned thumb lever and horizontal adjustment at the handlebar take the ergonomics to a new level.

First of all, let's just acknowledge the Shimano's 2:1 pull ratio is sweet. The trigger feel is light. And when I'm concentrating on a million other variables, it's nice to know that all I have to do to get a good shift is just barely touch the lever. I could go on, but let's just say that if you're reading reviews and you have the money and you're anywhere near the fence, let alone sitting on, then jump. You won't regret it. Years of clean shifting await you.
These shifters rock. I've been using them for over a year with no issues. They're light, look good, and shift great. Easy to install and I like how you can shift by moving it forward or backward. They also have a switch to make them 2x or 3x for the front. These shifters have never let me down. Reliable.
