Microshift R8 1x Short-Reach Shifters SB-R480K(S) 8-speed
£120.00 GBP £79.99 GBP
Microshift Short Reach is still the only practical drop handlebar shifter for children and are our shifters of choice for our custom built bikes.
This is the dedicated 1x shifter set (single front chainring).
With the exception of SRAM eTap (a tad pricey) Microshift are the only shifters that small hands and shorts fingers can safely use, thanks to their short, separate shift levers and shorter hood design.
Do not confuse with normal Microshift, these shifters are 10mm shorter, which makes a big difference to their reach and overall cockpit length, designed specifically for use by children.
