    It can do both Rapid rise and the regular shifting pattern.

    Derailleurs not shifters are classified low-normal or high-normal.

    i remember reading that the shifter was actually designed for low-normal derailleurs, but who knows.

    In the NSMB article it says it's capable of both.

    The NSMB article said that but the info was/is wrong. Shifting action is determined by the derailleur.


    I am curious of when the shifter will be available also.

    Sounds rad! Anyone know the MSRP? I wonder if selling a SRAM setup will be enough to get the Saint shifter and an XT derailure....

    The shifter is rad. I've been riding one for 4 months. It has a super short throw on it so it feels like your getting faster/crisper shifting. You run it between your grip/brake lever so that way you can run your brake lever far out and actually pull it from the very end where you get the best modulation and leverage.

    A+ on the Saint shifter!
