Shimano XT M780 10 Speed Shifter
The Shimano XT M780 10 Speed Rapidfire Pods are developed for fast-paced MTB riding, as it gives you quick and dependable shifting performance on the roughest of rides.
This model features a hard-wearing aluminium construction, which makes it ideal at tackling all the challenges that come with all-day epics in the mountains. Coming complete with Rapidfire Plus technology, this version also allows you to shift down three years with just one shift stroke.
Technologies: Rapidfire Plus: Rapidfire Plus has been used by mountain bikers since 1985.
Rapidfire Plus is still the first choice for a wide range of riding groups, from Cross Country racers to freeriders and downhillers. Rapidfire Plus is suitable for fast shifting. The rider can shift down up to three gears with one shift stroke.
2-Way Release: All newer Rapidfire Plus shifters are equipped with 2-way release (release in two directions). This means that the shifter cable is released by pulling with the index finger or pressing with the thumb.
Instant Release: Instant Release shifting replaces the two-stage click and release shifting you are familiar with.
Instant Release shifting releases cable as soon the lever is activated, resulting in the quickest possible gear changes. Whether it is an upshift with a top normal rear derailleur or a downshift with low normal rear derailleur a quicker shift is always a better shift.
Multi Release (10-speed only): In earlier shifting systems, gear changes in one direction took place faster than gear changes in another direction.
With Multi Release, two gears can now be changed with one lever actuation.
The result: The fastest possible gear change in both directions, regardless of the type of rear derailleur used.
I-Spec: Integration mounting system of shifter and brake lever.
It can realise clean appearance, more space for the handle bar area and lightweight.

Shimano are a Japanese manufacturer primarily known for their cycling components, and to a lesser extent shoes and clothing. Founded in 1921, Shimano is widely believed to be the largest cycling component manufacturer in the world, having reached this status through a combination of innovation, reliability and value for money. Whatever your style of riding, whether it be road or MTB, Shimano will have a component range to suit your level and budget, from the low end Alivio and Tiagra to the professional standard XTR and Dura-Ace. Over the years, Shimano have revolutionised bicycle gear, brake and pedal systems, such as the recessed SPD, Hollowtech crank arms and smooth shifting Hyperglide sprockets. Initially their component range faced competition from Suntour, whereas nowadays their primary rivals for market share are SRAM and Campagnolo.
