Shimano Deore M590 MTB Gear Levers - 9 Speed
  • Deore mountain bike Rapidfire shifter pods featuring 2-way release for cost effective 9-speed shifting performance
  • 2-way release allows shifting from various riding positions; the upper lever still performs the same shift function, but it can now swing in either direction allowing it to be released by the thumb or index finger
  • Mega9 compatible - for use with precision 9-speed drivetrain
  • Pod design allows the use of these shifters with any brake lever
  • Low-friction design means that shifters have a light and responsive short-stroke action that reduces shifting effort
  • Easy to read optical gear display
  • Barrel adjuster for fine gear tuning
  • Easy access clamp band adjustment for quick set up
Crosstrailer Just fitting these, so haven't used them on a ride yet, but they feel very solid and fit nicely on the bars with some hydraulic disc brake levers. Usual good quality feel from Shimano
Neil Thompson Quality shifters at a competitive price, easy to fit, & supplied with a full cable set.
Mr cotterill I had puzzled for a while over which left-hand only shifter I needed as the one fitted on the bike [I had stupidly damaged it] seemed to be discontinued, eventually I worked out that these should do the job. Ordering was easy, and once the gear-lever was on the handlebars and connected up, it worked perfectly with no further adjustment needed
Mr howard A good lightweight, low cost shifter
Mr Peter Grant Crisp changing - great performance at a decent price
Ross For the price, these are great, reliable and smooth shifting, never had a problem with these.
James F Good Value smooth shifters that 'just work'. Fair to say the indicators are not as easy to see as you could wish for but I'm used to not having them anyway so not a particular loss. Great value for money.
harms I bought these to replace my old broken deore shifters. The main difference is the optics are larger and they stick out at an angle away from the handlebars (rather than hug close to them) my guess is Shimano did this to accommodate bars that bend forwards. The shifters work great but the 9 spd optics only give an rough indication of which gear, what bugs me is in first gear the pointer isn't fully over to the right whilst in 8th gear it is fully over to the left, in 9th the pointer is barely visible.
Dai the surfing-mtber Excellent value for money, usual crisp shifting from Shimano levers and only a few grammes heavier than XT at a fraction of the price. Prompt delivery from Merlin, faultless service as usual. Don't hestitate to buy a pair.
Pub Biker Shimano rapidfires. Good value for money for my pub bike. Nothing else really to say.
Mr Horrocks I use XTs on my trailbike and wanted to upgrade our old 'spare' hardtail. These Deore shifters are now on the bike and work well. Awesome value for money at this stage. If I had another similar job, I wouldn't hesitate to get another set of Deore units from Merlin again. I'm now waiting for a restock of Deore brakes (please Merlin :-) ) so I can get a full set of these too. Then I can finally ditch the squealy, leaky old set of Juicy 5s on the same hardtail.
Miss Herdsman Great shifters, nice feel and I like the 2 way release. Comes with everything you need, plenty of cable outer. Arrived quickly and very well priced here.
Mr Haworth Smooth, precise, easy to maintain and last for ages. No brainer in the affordable shifter stakes.
Mr john Great set of levers. Bit heavier than my old LX ones that they replaced but who cares. They look robust and they work great. What more do you want.
Mr D K Roberts Excellent levers, very crisp and precise. Buying from Merlin also saves you a lot of money.
Mr Heyes Thay may not be the lightest and look a bit chunky against models higher up the Shimano range, but they are well made, easy to fit and set up and all for a reasonable price.
Mr SLACK Perfect service as usual from Merlin. Top product, robust shifters for bargain price.
Mr Banfield Very good.
