The standard thumbshifters on the Kibo are Sunrace, a reliable shifter, but we want to give you the option of some more premium options, namely Microshift and Shimano Dura Ace

Kibo thumbshifter upgrade
  • Microshift SL-A09 9 speed thumbshifters

     

    We’ve been very impressed with the Microshift thumbshifters – a low profile, durable, good ergonomically and they give very smooth shifting.

     

    With the SL-A09 shifters, the right hand shifter for the rear derailleur is index only like the standard spec SunRace shifters. The left is pure friction. For the ability to switch between friction and index for the right hand shifter see the SL-T09 option below.

     

    - Right: 9 speed indexed Shimano MTB compatible

    - Left: Double or Triple friction

    - Alloy forged lever and CNC bracket

    - Clamp 22.2mm for flat bars

    - Shimano compatible

    - Silver

    - Weight 110g per pair

     

    Microshift SL-T09 thumbshifters

     

    Simple operation and good looks  are matched with efficient performance and the versatility of switching between friction or indexed shifting (for the rear shifter). The front shifter operates in a friction mode that works with both double and triple cranks. Run it in friction for that classic feel or switch it into indexed for a precise modern shifting experience, you’ll need to use a 4mm allen key to switch between the two. It's super smooth, good sounding, with a holding power ratchet friction mechanism.

     

    - Right: 9 speed indexed or friction Shimano MTB compatible

    - Left: Double or Triple friction

    - Alloy forged lever and CNC bracket

    - Clamp 22.2mm for flat bars

    - Shimano compatible

    - Silver

    - Weight 110g per pair
