Cycling Plus (Malaysia) - - FEATURE / SHIMANO -

GRX shift­ing comes cour­tesy of ded­i­cated gravel-spe­cific er­gonomic levers (Di2: ST-RX815 or Me­chan­i­cal: ST-RX810/RX600/ RX400, ST-RX810-LA) fea­tur­ing an 18mm higher axis point, curved brake lever pro­file and anti-slip tex­tured fin­ish which can be gripped with as­sur­ance over rough ter­rain.

To in­te­grate the use of drop­per posts in gravel rid­ing, SHI­MANO cre­ated the GRX me­chan­i­cal ST-RX810-LA left hy­draulic disc brake lever, that when used with a 1x11 driv­e­train, can con­trol a drop­per post whilst also keep­ing the cock­pit tidy. The in­te­grated cable pulling sys­tem has a 9mm lever throw to op­er­ate drop­per posts with cable heads at the shift lever. SHI­MANO GRX also in­cludes 1x11-spe­cific RX800 and Rx600-se­ries left side hy­draulic disc brake levers with no drop­per or shift in­ter­nals, in­clud­ing the 1x11 Di2 left-hand lever (ST-RX15), which comes with three but­tons (two side but­tons and a hood top but­ton) for op­er­at­ing an­cil­lary func­tions such as lights or 3rd party com­put­ers.
