    After the first week of use, I love it. Installed on a folding travel bike it has eliminated a cumbersome cable and enables me to easily change gear with a recovering broken wrist and wonky thumb!

    Just got done installing my D1x trail and the process was pretty smooth and straight forward . The unit itself looks pretty robust and shifts quick. Not to mention that the new remote with the micro adjustment works flawless. I just wish that it came with the Shimano I-Spec2 for much cleaner install. Nevertheless Archercomponents did a great job on the D1x trail and it’s much affordable compared to the other wireless units out there. It was definitely worth the wait !!!

    Do you sell these in the UK? I live on a Scottish Island and an avid mountain biker, I think is a great idea.

    • We do! Please contact sales@archercomponents.com to place an order in the UK. We had to turn off UK ordering for the moment due to a rash of fraudulent charges. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Wow, purely and simply Wow.
    I have been riding and building bikes for close to 30 years now, since I was 4 or 5 years old. I started riding just as the front suspension fork was evolving into something less of a novelty into a viable, usable and extremely beneficial component. Which improved MTB as a whole it opened up doors to what was it possible to do with a bike ( if you had the balls ) things that had never been thought possible.
    The next and probably, in my view the greatest advancement in MTB was of course rear suspension. Completely revolutionising what was possible, and basically creating a new style and category of riding. Leading to Downhill, All Mountain and Free Ride.
    Last but by no means least, is the introduction of hydraulic disc brakes. This new breed of unbridled, raw stopping power gave us thrill seekers the final element we required to push the sport we love to the very extreme of what we as riders were each capable of.
    Now of course electronic shifting offered by the likes of SRAM, Shimano and others is equally as notable as the rest I have mentioned. But although it is in the same sort of price range as a top of the range fork or shock and in relation also a high spec brake set. It is also a very niche and considered purchase. That in my eyes and probably most others not something that is worth the money over all.
    Which is were your product comes into it’s own very unique category. I already have a very expensive and what in my opinion is the best group set out there in a complete Shimano XTR set up. And as soon as I have saved the $400 I will be placing my order and will await its delivery impatiently like a child on Christmas Eve.
    Also I’m sure you already have plans in the pipe line, but I think you could completely eliminate cockpit clutter if you developed your own bars. Or I have already designed a rough plan for a easily produced jig to enable the shifting components to be incorporated into my existing handle bars. Either having both up and down buttons on one side or splitting them and having one available to each thumb on each side of the bar.

    Put in polarity protection like a diode… Scares me that I can accidentally ruin it by putting the batteries in backwards where most expensive electronics just won’t power up until you put the batteries in correctly.

    • We agree! The issue was discovered early and we’ve already fixed the issue. Any of the shifters that went out with the missing protection that got fried were replaced with fixed ones.

    Just got this set up on my bike this afternoon. I’ve been following these guys for a while and was very interested to see what the final product looked like. I was pretty impressed by the quality and over all sturdiness of the shifter and remote. It took about as much time to set up as a normal cable system and although I turned the remote on when you weren’t supposed to, devin answered my call straight away and walked me through the issue. (Both your phone and the remote cant connect to the shifter at the same time). Rode it about 15 miles afterwards and it was a lot faster and smoother than i was anticipating. Feels just like di2 or e tap does in terms of speed. Pretty stoked to see how it performs tomorrow!

    HOLY S%#T! The D1x is awesome. I don’t have enough thumbs to give it a proper thumbs up. I love it.
    Easy to set up, shifts like a dream, even under load. My drivetrain has never been so quiet. Double and triple shifts are a breeze. It was very easy to get used to the buttons coming from the XTR shifters I have been using for 20 years.

    It is a great product and I’m looking forward to seeing how it evolves over time.

    I have one small complaint that might be easily resolved. I don’t like the mount, the remote does not sit parallel with my handlebar, looking down at it it would need to rotate clockwise. I’d rather have it parallel to the handlebar.

    Anyway couldn’t be happier with the shifter. Just rode some really rooty technical trails and it was a breeze my first time out. Thanks again for all your help and great customer service!

    Bought the D1x about a month ago. Installed it on the bike and unfortunately installed batteries backwards (don’t do this), which fried the control board. Devin was super quick to help diagnose the issue and send me a replacement.
    Installed the replacement on my bike and did a very quick indexing before taking it on a short ride around my neighborhood. All seemed quite well, so I took it for ride on trails that weekend and I was plagued by undesired shifts while climbing. On the ride home, I realized my error. I had indexed to the point it where the gear first changed to the next cog, resulting in it being on the edge of the shift point, resulting in the unwanted shifts.
    Took time and re-indexed the gears again, this time figuring the mid-point between when it shifted TO a gear and when it shifted to the next gear, then set to the point in the middle of the two points. Took the bike out for second ride, and it was flawless. Shifts are nice and clean. Love the features in the app like rescue gear (for low power).
    I will say that it’s so quiet that it took a bit to get used to at first, being used to a click with each gear change. Now that I’m used to it, it’s really slick. Great work to the Archer crew. A+ product and equally impressive customer service.

    The box from Archer showed up on my porch, I struggled a bit trying to unbox the DX 1 fast enough for my cat that was waiting to get in the box. Install was a breeze, it took less time than I expected. I been riding it for almost a month now here in the sloppy northwest. It’s working great, better then my riding skills. No more cold hands shifting issues for me! I can shift wearing warm ski gloves.

    I installed the D1X system on my bike about a month ago now. Installation was very easy. I followed the instructions and tuned the shift points with the archer app. I rode 160 miles over the next four days and the shifting was outstanding. I made ridiculous shifts that you normally wouldn’t do like multiple gear changes under load on steep climbs and rapid shifts up and down. The system performed perfectly. The first three days were on very worn chain, cassette and chain ring. The fourth day was on brand new running year. No adjustments were needed after the initial set up the system is still working perfect with 600 miles now. I’m loving how fast & crisp the shifting is. Archer has an awesome product IMHO. Looking forward to hammering out 1,000 dirt miles over the next couple months & posting another review.

    The shiftier works great. Very easy to set up and fine tune the shifting. Using buttons to change gears is strange, but feels good and is easy to do. Devin has been very helpful sorting things out.

    Great product! Smooth shifting with precise adjusting. I needed a few installation questions answered and Devin was very quick to respond. I was not sure if this type of device would be worth the money but it certainly is. Looks like I will be needing a second for my other bike. Great job guys!

    Awesome product! Finally I can have electronic precise shifting on my SRAM Eagle. There have been a couple of issues with the device, but Devin had them sorted out immediately. In fact, my feedback has lead to changes in the design to make it even better!
