The R9 front shift/brake dropbar lever is designed for a 2x11 speed drivetrain. With separate shift paddles there is no chance of using the wrong one and both can be easily reached from the hoods. It provides precise shifting and also has 2 trim positions. The ergonomic hood shape is comfortable for long days in the saddle with slight ribbing for better grip. Also compatible with Shimano road derailleurs. Shift cable included.
