As SRAM makes ever-better 1×11 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 1×11 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.
