Further details

2-Way Release The release lever of the Rapidfire shifter can be operated in 2 directions. On the one hand pressed away from the driver using thumb, on the other hand protracted to the driver by index finger
Instant Release This technology replaces the 2-stage click and release process on existing shifters. If you press the lever, the lever will be released immediately and the switching operation is performed. This saves time significantly.
Multi Release If it was at Top-Normal or Low-Normal rear derailleurs so far that the switching speeds in one direction have differed from that in the other direction, this is with the Multi Release technology over. Not only the gear change is done equally well in both directions, several gear stages can be performed with one operation
I-Spec A fixing system for the integration of brake and shift lever with a single fixation on the handlebar. This saves weight in addition to a tidy appearance
