Boy howdy. When we started making little machined blocks to attach our SRAM shifters to our Shimano brakes, we had no idea it would be a whole product category for us. Now we’ve got four different MisMatch adapter styles to mate six different shift & brake lever combinations together. Why? Because handlebar space is precious, and every little bit of consolidation helps.
MisMatch adapters allow users to mate Shimano I-Spec components with SRAM/Avid MatchMaker X brakes and shifters on one clamp.
Compatibility (Updated 8/30/2017)
MisMatch adapters and the ever evolving “standards” it attempts to integrate between SRAM and Shimano is a confusing subject. Shimano brake and shifter mounting options have changed a lot, going through four mounting systems from 2011-2016. Shimano components have a model number printed somewhere on the brake and/or shifter, and this is the best way to determine what you own and what adapter you need. Here is some guidance on finding the right fit for your setup.* If you’re not sure which type of attachment system your parts use, check out our adaptor guide here!
