B. A. ReichertHuge upgrade from SRAM X9 shifter. Very smooth shifting and gear alignment.
İhsan Deniz YılmazVery sensitive shifting. Really stable.
JacksonXT is a great upgrade from SLX - better action, lighter action, and all round worth the cost in my opinion. Now have the SLX as a backup - win-win situation.
steeluthBig change - from the Deore to XT - and massive improvement, works smooth, to the point you cant sometimes tell you actually shifted(!) you can change 2 gears up at a time and 4 down - very convenient especially off road when seconds matter, would recommend
Mr ButterfieldShifters easily fit to my brake levers with I spec. Much improved gear changing and easy to set up.
Mr NahhasGreat shifters with easy access and integration with the I-Spec brake set. Well worth the upgrade!
iWomack*****The Type-B shifter do not have the "optical gear display"***** Smooth shifting from this set of levers, easy to fit and adjust and marry up perfectly with a set of Shimano XT (M786) mechs. The small price difference between these and the SLX model make this an obvious up-sell.
SportyGreat levers, shifting is crisp. Improvement over the Deore they replaced. Directly mount to M785 XT brake levers (i-spec B).
Mr RowleyUsual shimano xt quality. Smooth and positive shifting and lovely double up shift facility on the rear..
Antony CXT , in my opinion, are always nice robust components that can take the hammer of my daily (offroad) commute without having to replace them every 3 months. And at this price they are a bargain
BruceMy bike originally came with XT derailleurs and Deore shifters, stripped thread good excuse for upgrade. Now firing up and down the gears as intended, excellent product, easy to fit and came supplied with cables. First class service from Merlin at an unbeatable price as usual, great!
StockdaleShifting performance second to none. First class product.
ThejonesyBought the option with no cables, this means you still get inner cables, just not the outers. Easy to fit, crisp shifting. Great product at a brilliant price.
BC_DogPicked these up with the i-spec mounting kit (the i-spec levers were not available). Easy to upgrade and shifts are solid. Paired with Shadow+ RD makes a great combination.
Gerry McGReally pleased with these. Purchased to replace my aging shifters. The difference gives me a kick every time I change gear :)
Mr McClureExcellent shifting as expected from Shimano
Jonathan SEasy to install, only had a couple of rides on it but silky smooth. Very nice piece of equipment. Would highly reccomend
JTSmooth action and good quality.
Nick FryI've always used xt, and I've just changed from 9-10 speed so these were the obvious replacement. Smooth, effortless and well built just about sums them up.
Mr thompsonExcellent shifters, don't try and save a bit by getting SLX, the difference in shifting is miles better.
RAFBought to replace a set of SLX 10spd shifters. Whether they are actually better is really down to personal preference. XT have a much more positive, almost 'clunky' action to them, which means it is harder to over shift but the buttery smooth shifting of SLX is very nice in use and less fatiguing. Overall it is hard to recommend these above SLX at the recommended prices but at the Merlin price I'm happy! If at all possible try before you buy as they definitely have their own, quite different characteristics.
SteveShimano have been making rapidfire shifters for so long you'd be surprised if there was anything wrong with them! No issues with these, shifting is light & intuitive. I stick with Shimano because I prefer the feel of the shifting & the position of the levers. SRAM seem OK but I don't like where they put the smaller of the 2 levers, I always feel like I have to find it first. With Shimano it's like the levers are where I'd expect them to be if that makes any sense. I also like the 2 click at a time option for the RH shifter for quickly getting the right gear when you get on a downhill. And finally, they have a quality feel to them, seem like they should last.
Mr SpvShould have moved to XT ages ago, nice crisp changes. Plus the removable windows and option of 2 way or 3 way shifting is excellent.
JasonBest value for money on shifting performance. I was gonna go SLX but the price difference was so small I went XT. Smooth confident shifting is what you get. Multiple shifts either way. Great price from Merlin and I have them shipped to South Africa in 4 days.
doeringDual release is nice. Don't come with cover if indicator is removed, so they don't play nice with Avid brakes. Shift well, with a positive feel. Front lever works with double mech, which is great and shifts better than a triple.
Miss jonesExcellent best shifters out there
Mr LynchAmazing shifter! Love the the push /pull actuation! Awesome that they come with cables and Housing! Awesome price and prompt delivery! Yeah Merlin!
Mr ShillitoGreat shifters, arrived quickly and for the best price around. Cable outers were also included which I was not expecting.
Mr smithTired of my fragile SRAM X9 / X0 transmission (4 bust rear mechs in 6 months). I Idecided to change to these as a few friernds reckon that Shimano kit is tougher. These are very crisp shifting, if not a bit clunky in fact, but very positive. Fantastic value as you get cable inners, outers and ferrules in the box too. Mated with an SLX Shadow+ rear mech, XT front mech, these are so far working really well. I was very happy until I hit a tree at speed and wrote my frame off!
Mr NielsenMuch better version than the xt m770 .
Mr FraserExcellent piece of kit, very slick shifting. Great service from Merlin as usual.
Mr RebelloPerfect shiffts! 5 stars for this!
Mr GammonsPrecise shifting every time with these. Superb build quality at an affordable price.
NeilSuper fast delivery, great price, great product. Recommended
Mr SwitzerI upgraded the Deore 10 spd shifters that came on my new mtn bike to these XT shifters. Installed now and ready to go next spring! I have XT 9 spd on my old mtn bike and love them. Hence the upgrade on the new 29er. Unbelievable service from Merlin Cycles: ordered Nov 27; delivered here in Western Canada Dec 7!
Mr hastegreat pair of shifters just upgraded from my slx jobbies
Mr NewboldDead on, great price and fast delivery
Mr JenkinsonGreat quality. I upgraded from alivio so this seems like a new world.
Mr GantNice positive shift action, certainly improved over the previous incarnation of 10spd XT shifters which these replaced, shame you can't remove the shift indicators without converting to i spec mountings. Excellent Shimano and very prompt service from Merlin Cycles as always.
Mr CourtneyPut these on my 2012 Stumpjumper, awesome shifting at an excellent price, it came with SLX as standard, the difference is massive, just so smooth I can barely feel it going through the cogs, I would recommend them to anyone.
JordarnExcellent Product Light weight and built Well Thanks
