The Shimano XT SL-M780-10 Rapidfire shifters easily convert to either a double or triple crankset mode with the simple turn of a screw on the left shifter. Unique 2-way cable release accommodates individual riding styles or shifting (index finger or thumb.) The upper lever still performs the same function, but now swings both ways. Pull it with your finger or push it with your thumb. The fastening clamp offers variable positioning, allowing you to set up your cockpit just the way you'd like it. The optical gear display floats above the handlebar, or it can be removed completely. Shimano SIS-SP41 outer housing and coated stainless steel cable provide super smooth shifting. Includes front and rear shifters.
The Shimano XT M785-10 Top Swing front derailleur is designed for use with the Shimano Dyna-Sys 10-speed, 2 x 10. The angled adjustment screws and clamp bolt make the new front derailleur more mechanically friendly.
Efficiency was the key principle when designing the Shimano Dyna-Sys XT M780 SGS 10-speed rear derailleur. The derailleur was designed with a longer swing arm and a tighter spring for crisper shifting when you want it, and less 'ghost shifting' when you don't. The Dyna-Sys rear derailleur will stay in adjustment longer and deliver consistent performance with each ride.
The Shimano XT 10-speed cassette provides a more efficient and usable range of gears. The gears are arranged so that when you shift the front chainrings, you only have to adjust one gear in the back to 'recover' your gear. The XT cassette sprockets offer Shimano's patented Hyperglide shifting ramps and alloy carriers for great shifting and less weight. Shimano also offers a wide range of cassette choices with 11-32 for XC racers, 11-36 for all-day climbing, and 11-34 for everything in between.
The Shimano XT CN-HG95 10-speed chain was developed specifically for MTB riding. This directional chain employs task-specific link plates to optimize front and rear shifting, and offers excellent mud shedding thanks to the special outer link plate design. A new Sil-Tec treatment on the plates allows them the freely pivot around derailleur pulleys, cogs, and chain rings with less friction. For use with 10-speed Shimano drivetrains only, will not work for road use. 283 g.
