SHIMANO STI Lever Hoods

Model: Shimano   |   Asin: B07H3ZPVWK

Hoods lead a life full of danger. Concrete, asphalt, even our hands (or gloves, depending on your preference) provide constant abuse to the poor little silicone stalwarts. Wear isn't necessarily an enemy, though--after all, well broken-in hoods can be a comfort after a season or two of use; however, when the wear comes from an untimely crash, it certainly is. Shimano's STI Lever Hoods let you erase the seasons of damage done to your hoods, ensuring grip and comfort for another few seasons to come.

Shimano XT SL-M8000 I-Spec II Trigger Shifter

Model: Shimano   |   Asin: B072KT7GG1

Borrowing much of its technology from creme de la creme XTR shifters, the Shimano XT SL-M8000 I-Spec II Trigger Shifter offers the razor-sharp shifts and ergonomic feel of its racier brother, but at an affordable price that only sacrifices a few grams. Despite being friendly on your wallet, the M8000 Shifter commands precise gear shifts with the astounding durability known to Shimano's XT M8000 group. This particular version benefits from its I-Spec II integrated mounting system, which cleans up your cockpit with the use of newer XT and XTR brake levers. This clean mounting system also saves a couple of grams while increasing the range of angular adjustability to your particular liking. Shimano designed the M8000 to command control over the wide range of gears found on their newest 11-speed drivetrains. It's revamped with a longer lever body for easier shifting with less force required to initiate the shifting mechanism. The anti-slip surface on the main lever improves tactile feel while lessening the likelihood of slipping out when critical shifts are needed in demanding terrain. These features, combined with a new shift cable covered in a low-friction coating, create a 20-percent reduction in force required for gear shifts. Ultimately, this translates to less fatigue of your fingers while you're riding for hours on the trail. For even better shifting, the M8000 features two-way release that permits you to shift the upper lever with either your thumb or index finger, depending on where your hands are situated on the bars. Multi-release functionality provides the ability to shift through multiple gears with the single sweep of a lever while the instant release design ensures the proper gear is selected the instant you throw the lever.

Features

  • Material: aluminum
  • Type: trigger shifter
  • Crankset Compatibility: Shimano 11-speed
  • Compatible Components: Shimano M8000 series, I-Spec II

SHIMANO Deore XT M8000 Shifter

Model: Shimano   |    Mpn: 50-4092   |    PartNumber: 50-4092   |   Asin: B017WPCU5S

Shimano's move to 11-speed MTB has been about more than just adding another cog. It's about fundamentally redesigning the way the entire system shifts to make it smoother, crisper, and more reliable. The all-new Deore XT M8000 shifters have been completely redesigned from the last generation to provide a simple, adaptable cockpit with the latest technology. Shift feel has been reengineered to be 20% for the rear, meaning far less force is required to shift the chain. A longer lever body gives you more leverage to work with, further enhancing the feel and ease of shifting. The internal mechanism has been completely redesigned for consistently stable shifting that will shift perfectly every time, and require none of the odd little "nudges" to get the chain into gear. This is coupled with an all-new shift cable and house with hyper low-friction coatings. Finally, for that nice little touch, the levers both have anti-slip coating to ensure your thumbs always stay where they need to be, in even the wettest conditions.Features: Reengineered for 20% lighter rear shifts Longer lever design makes shifting under load easier Consistently stable shifting design moves the chain precisely onto the right cog New cables and housing with hyper low-friction coating Anti-slip coating on shift lever Choose left or right shifter

Features

  • Reengineered for 20% lighter rear shifts
  • Longer lever design makes shifting under load easier
  • Consistently stable shifting design moves the chain precisely onto the right cog

Shimano Tri Shifter Set SW-R671

Model: Shimano   |   Asin: B07C56SZ7S

While electronic shifting has several advantages for road bike, the advantages are even greater for TT bikes. Of course perfect shifting, no more dropped chains, and the lack of moving, oddly routed cables and housing are advantages for everyone. But the big difference between TT and road bike shifting is hand position. Not only is shifting on aero bars awkward and inconvenient, but there is a moment while you're grip is changing that's actually kind of dangerous. Shimano Ultegra Di2 Remote TT Shifters change all that with the touch of a button. Instead of adjusting your hand position on the bar, you simply touch the shifter button with your thumb, and it gives you a perfect shift every time. No more friction. No more cable adjustments. No more scary, out-of-control moments.

  • Type: time trial
  • Crankset Compatibility: double ring
  • Compatible Components: Shimano Di2
