Automatic transmissions have been the norm -- though not the standard -- on most cars for decades, and XSHIFTER is hoping to bring that same level of efficiency and ease to bicycling. The XSHIFTER system is a wireless gear shifter with smart electronic settings that offer a host of benefits for cyclists of all styles and levels of expertise.

Because the XSHIFTER system is wireless, one of its biggest benefits is the reduction of weight that it lends to any bicycle rig. Typical gear shifting systems require cables to reach from the handlebars to the front and rear derailleurs. The XSHIFTER eliminates these cables without adding any substantial weight in itself, ultimately making for a lighter ride.

XSHIFTER is compatible with virtually any bicycle frame and derailleur. In fact, consumers can even use the system with two different derailleurs on the same bicycle.
