Strengths:    Quick, precise, clean shifting. They work with shimano components.

Weaknesses:    Rubber seal easy to tear - but that doesn't affect functionality at all.

Bottom Line:   
These get me to the gear I need while my trigger friends fumble around. Tried trigger shifters on friends bikes - hated em. I guess its a matter of taste, but I have no idea why anyone would mess around with trigger shifters. The rubber seal connecting the shifter to the main ring tore at tiny bit after I turned the bike upside down. So it looks used now - otherwise they're epic. I absolutely recommend these. Plus, they can drive shimano components.

Strengths:    comfortable, durable, reliable.

Weaknesses:    shifts just a little to easily.

Bottom Line:   
an awesome shifter but it need to be a bit more stiff. Other than that i like it more than any trigger shifter i've used because i find it easier to switch gears. and it also looks awsome

Date Reviewed: February 26, 2006

Strengths:    Better shifting than Shimano thumbies, light weight, easy adjust.

Weaknesses:    Plastic casing, but it hasn't broken yet on me, despite my numerous crashes.

Bottom Line:   
I got these shifters when I replaced my drive train from Shimano Alivio/Acera to XT. Shifting is better and holds adjustment longer. I like the fact that I can still brake while shifting to set up the next turn/hill and have most of my fingers gripping the bar (a safety plus). The best thing is I'm able to trim the front derailer to avoid chain rub. Don't get me wrong, shifting will skip every now and then, but that could just be from the 1:2 Shimano cable shifting pull.

Strengths:    Light weigh, shifts great, easy to adjust.

Weaknesses:    They look kinda cheap.

Bottom Line:   
I wanted to try Grip Shifters for some time. When I purchased the Attacks I was actually shopping for Rockets. My favorite shop didn’t have any in stock at the time so they offered a set of Attacks and said I could return them if I didn’t like them. They turned out to be a great bang for the buck. They shift great. They have a good year of use and have been very reliable. Good quality and value.

Strengths:    Quick, positive shifts

Weaknesses:    Plastic casing

Bottom Line:   
I had a hard time finding 8-speed shimano shifters to replace the one that broke, so I decided to give these a try since they are shimano compatible. Installation was fairly easy and integrated well with my existed shimano xt shifter/brake lever. It took a couple rides and adjustments to "break-in" the shifter and cables to where all eight gears would lock correctly. Now it works great and I am very happy with it. It took a while to get used to the grip-shift vs. rapid-fire, but the mechanism is simpler so less likely to break. The only drawback is that when the shifter gets covered in mud, it gets too slippery to shift, esp. into lower gear (rear).
But at $35, it was a lot less than the shimano. I give it 4 chilis due to the cheap looking construction.
