The SL-M8130 from the Shimano XT series can be attached to the right side of the handlebars using a clamp. This is the right shifter for the Linkglide 11-speed drivetrain, which was specifically developed for e-bikes and punishing applications in the touring and MTB sector. The levers are easily accessible and easy to operate, and as with all Rapidfire Plus models, thanks to 2-Way Release technology, the shift cable can be released both by pulling with the index finger and by thumb pressure. In addition, Instant Release speeds up the gear change, which is typically fast and defined. An Optislick inner cable, which supports the function thanks to its coating, is supplied with the shifting handle. Note that there is no compatibility with non-linkglide rear derailleurs due to the different cable ratio.
