Pull the trigger.
As SRAM makes ever-better 1x11 drivetrains, the components to go with them improve, too. Latest in the line is the new X1 11-Speed Trigger Shifter, which borrows technology from SRAM's top-shelf 1x11 shifters, the XX1 and X01, but sticks it in a durable aluminum package that's more resilient and less expensive than carbon fiber.
Like the XX1, the X1 features SRAM's X-Actuation and Zero Loss designs, which enable crisp, precise, and dependable shifting through all your gears. It also sports a cable-pull ratio system, which serves up uniform and accurate derailleur movement without the need for hand-cramping force as you shift up into bigger gears. SRAM also included a Matchmaker-X-compatible clamp, so you can mount it up with RockShox' XLoc dropper post control to eliminate bar clutter and streamline your cockpit.

Good upgrade from NX
Best way to improve shifting smoothness is shifter. I got this over the NX one, and it does feel nice!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The internals are exactly the same too so you’ll only notice a slightly stiffer front trigger feel in comparison to an XX1 trigger, which will set you back twice as much.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
with 11-speed goodies as pricey as they are, this shifter works as good as any and is set at a great price!
