Whether you’re riding with your friends after work or competing in an event, these shifters will give you maximum performance. They feature a slim main lever body with an optical gear display that’s positioned below your handlebar. This means you’ll be able to view which gear position is selected while riding your mountain bike. Prepared for all-weather conditions, Shimano has equipped these shifters with Optislick cables which feature an electrically coated outer layer. This means you won’t have to worry about damaging them in wet conditions.

8 Speed MTB Shifters with Rapidfire Plus

Developed for light shifting operation, these trail-ready MTB shifters are kitted out with Rapidfire Plus technology. A winning choice for a wide range of riders from XC racers to freeriders, this technology is specifically suited for quick shifting. As a result, you’ll benefit by being able to downshift three gears in one stroke. This makes these shifters an excellent choice of upgrade for riders who want to keep their momentum flowing as they blast across the mountain bike trails.


Optislick: Optislick cables feature a minimal and uniform electrically coated layer that improves cable routing efficiency and provides excellent corrosion resistance.

Optical Gear Display: The optical gear display tells you which gear position is selected while riding your bike. You can see how many gears you can select either on the low side or top side, which makes shifting control easier.

**Rapidfire Plus:**Mountain bikers have used RAPIDFIRE PLUS since 1985. RAPIDFIRE PLUS is still a winning choice from a wide range of riders from XC racers to freeriders. RAPIDFIRE PLUS is suited to quick shifting, giving riders the ability to downshift three gears in one stroke. RAPIDFIRE PLUS shifters from DEORE to XTR all feature 2WAY-RELEASE, which means release shifts by pull of the index finger or push of the thumb.
