- 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.
