What Lever Style Should I Choose?
The Short – Right Hand Shifter is our Standard shifter because it is very small and very effective. The shifter is positioned against the grip and extends straight forward from the handlebar. The right side shifter is also capable of getting an extra strong clamp on the control cable. The long of the short of it is that this lever is highly accessible for quick, index finger operation and we found it to be the preferred lever by riders so we call it our Standard Lever Style.
The Long – Right Hand Shifter has the same base section as our Short – Right Hand but with a one inch longer lever section. This shifter is preferred by the rider who wants to position their brake and gear shift levers up closest to the grip, therefore putting their hand further out on the grip. In this configuration, the RASE Long – Right Hand Shifter is positioned inside from the brake lever and gear shifter.
The Short – Left Hand Shifter and Long – Left Hand Shifter may be preferred by some riders. Again, the Short – Left Shifter is very small and effective. The Long – Left Shifter has the same base section as the Short – Left Shifter but with a one inch longer lever section. Use of bulkier, right side, twist-gear shifter may require the use of a RASE Left Shifter.
