Hinged, two-piece shift lever bracket.
What fits together?
Read here the different possibilities:
Combination 1: Avid, Magura, Formula brake with Shimano or SRAM shifter
MATSHI to be combined with XTR and SAINT
brake master cylinder of latest generation
with I-Spec B clamp (model year 2014)
Matshi on I-Spec B
Due to many inquiries: MATSHI also fits with the latest Shimano I-Spec B clamps (starting with Shimano model year 2014). You will need our special M5 threaded sleeve plus M3 cross bolt. This sleeve/bolt will be available from October 9th, 2013. They replace the Shimano parts "Bolt(small)" and "Nut", shown in picture Case B.
Braking with Shimano, changing gear with SRAM – and yet save space at the handlebar? Now it can be done.
We've made and discarded no end of prototypes. The outcome was a small, simple and inconspicuous part with an ingenious design, combining the SRAM Trigger gear levers (X7, X9, XO, XX) with all Shimano brake levers with I-Spec clamps* (also with the 2014 range models!).
And that's how it's done: connect MATSHI to the I-Spec clamp, then bolt the SRAM gear lever with MATSHI. Done.
What makes MATSHI so special is that the SRAM gear paddles are positioned with millimetre precision at the same spot as in the assembly using an SRAM clamp. This is crucially important for the good ergonomics of the SRAM gear lever.
Although MATSHI is made of stainless steel, it's as light as a feather: an outrigger weighs as little as 7 grams.
Following the latest trend to 1x11 shifting we also supply the right side MATSHI only.Price is as low as 29,90 Euro/pair or 19,90 Euro/pc, right side only.

Due to many inquiries let's start our Clapton page with an explanation to which Shimano Trigger fits with which Matchmaker clamp:
Shimano triggers and Matchmaker are only connectable with our Saint/SLX/XT module.
The following triggers can be mounted to your Matchmaker clamp:
- Saint series SL-M810 (9 speed)
- SLX series SL-M660 (9 speed)
- SLX series SL-M660-10R (10 speed)
- XT series SL-M770 (9 speed)
(top: with gear indicator; bottom: without gear indicator)
- XT series SL-M770-10 (10 speed)
(pic shows trigger without gear indicator)
Please find the necessary information to all other compatibilities at the bottom of this page.
Attention - now available:
The new, reinforced CLAPTON version
CLAPTON is available in all new Trickstuff colours
(Illus. shows Clapton with XTR-970 bracket)
For years the practical invention of divided BMC clamps has been available, but without exception shifters have always had to be threaded over the end of the handlebars. And as an irritating additional job: carefully removing rubber grips or damaging expensive lightweight grips if they are stuck on.
And anyone who says “but surely you have screw-on grips nowadays”, will have found that the gear cables are often too short (particularly on wide handlebars!) and that you have to dismantle the handlebars or unthread the cables to be able to take off the shifter.
No more! With the Clapton clamp, changing the shifter or handlebars is child’s play.
Trickstuff is the first manufacturer to make universally mounting clamps:
Clapton with Shimano, Shimano with Matchmaker
Together with the corresponding mounting adaptors, the Clapton clamp can be combined with Shimano shifters.
The adaptors are available in two versions:
For mounting Saint, XT or SLX shifters to a Clapton clamp or – GENIUS! – to “Matchmaker” clamps for Avid, Formula, Hope, Magura.
