    Are XT SL-T780 shifters Dyna-Sys ???? (note the "T")

    Cant seem to find info on this anywhere .

    Are XT TREKKING shift levers (Sl- T 780) also Dyna.Sys (Note the T , im not talking about the SL-M780 shift levers)

    Reason Im asking is I want to continue using a RapidRise rearmech , but with a 10sp cassette.
    I know I could just get the SL-R780 shiftlevers( "Ultegra level" flatbar 10sp. shifters) but they only come in F+R sets , whereas Ive found the Trekking SL-T780 shifter as a rear only at roseversand.de

    If you want to keep your rapid rise rear derailleur, you'll need to use the road 10speed shifters. 780 is the XT dynasis model number and the other XT Trekking components are just brake levers with longer levers and crankset with bigger gears so I cant imagine that the shifter would be any different.

    Looks like the T780 rear derailleur is 10 speeds so I'd imagine the T780 shifter would then also have to be 10 speeds. Kinda funny though that the T780 rear derailleur uses the traditional Shimano cable routing, not the Dynasis routing.

    Bike24 says it's Dynasis:
