Squeeze the trigger.
GX 2x11 Trigger Shifters bring many of SRAM’s high-end 11-speed technologies into the realm of the affordable and work with its huge 10-42 cassette.
This includes the new X-Actuation that keeps shifting precise and dependable across the cassette. Like the Exact-Actuation ratio for its 10-speed road group, SRAM has deviated from its bread-and-butter, 1:1 pull ratio. GX uses SRAM's cable-pull ratio system to deliver a more uniform and accurate derailleur movement, with less applied force required from the user.
The shifter also comes with a MatchMaker-compatible clamp in order to simplify accessibility and to create a clean aesthetic by placing your Avid or Guide levers and RockShox PushLoc suspension controls on the same clamp with your shifters.
Great budget shifter
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
It does feel cheaper than the more expensive counterparts to my hand, but as far as function goes, it works great. Good enough for a budget build!
A Thoroughbred Workhorse
GX may be a workhorse group but it certainly still performs. Thanks to SRAM's X-Actuation ratio shifts are crisp, clean, and even across the full range of the cassette. Shifts have a positive and mechanical feel, even under a high load.
