  • Shimano Altus SL-M315 8 Speed Rapidfire Shifters

    Engineered for intense MTB rides, these shifters offer smooth and reliable shifting operation on mixed terrain conditions. 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 you've selected while riding your mountain bike.

    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 and keep your momentum flowing across the mountain bike trails.

    Weather-Resistant MTB Shifters

    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. Whether you're riding with your friends after work or competing in an event, the Shimano Altus SL-M315 8 Speed Rapidfire Shifters are designed for maximum performance.

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.
