Shift and shred.
Whether you're running 1x11 or 2x11 on your Shimano XT Di2 electronic groupset, this SW-M8050 Right Shifter can handle the task of shifting through both. When used with Shimano's customizeable Synchro Shift mapping, the front derailleur can shift automatically to the correct chainring as you move up and down the cassette for the range a 2x setup with the ease and simplicity of 1x.
Its short lever throw and tactile clicks give you excellent shift feel, and you can individually adjust the reach on each lever to perfectly fit your hand. Along with single-shifter Synchro operation, Di2's E-Tube customization also allows you to assign upshifting or downshifting to either lever, or even non-traditionally use the right shifter to operate the front derailleur to handle any rider preference or situation.

- Short stroke, perfect click levers provide faster, more accurate shifting

Agh yes, the joy of DI2
I bought one of these XT shifters for my wife's Di2 setup. I bought an XTR version for my own. There really is no functional difference so get this one and save some $$. The XTR might be slightly more refined, but not enough to matter (though the XTR is a few grams lighter.)
