Model/Year: 2015

Pros: double thumb triggers

Recommendation: very responsive. Always easy to shift gears on the trail. Never had any problems

December 21, 2012
Pros: - Crisp and smooth
- Shifts quickly
- Good price
- Sleep and simple
- No gear indicator

Recommendation: In my mind X9 is the way to go. Its leagues ahead of the X7 shifters because it actually feels like a solid unit. The X7 and lower feel and look like a Costco special. It is also quite affordable, retailing at about half the price of X0, but you get the same precision and smoothness as the X0.

I'm a Sram guy so if you like their products I highly recommend the X9 and wouldn't spend the money on anything less.

Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Don't realize they are there, perfect shifts when adjusted right.

Cons: Clamps are weak and expensive to replace. Tight's tight, too tight's broke!

Recommendation: I love these shifters. I highly recommend them.

Pros: have had these for about two years never had an issue.

Pros: Trouble-free performance, good value for the price

Cons: none

Recommendation: I have used this shifter on my urban bike for about a year. I liked it enough to replace a Shimano Rapidfire shifter on my XC bike. Like the other reviews say, the shifting is smooth, quick, and trouble-free. Both my bikes are setup 1X9 so I can't say how the front shifter would perform. I like the all push action on the triggers. The trigger placement feels perfect on the handlebar.

Pros: asome performance. dependable shifting. matchmaker compatible.

Cons: none

Recommendation: never had anything but good control and dependability with these shifters. Love the thumb action onstesd of having to pull to go back down on the gears.

November 30, 2010
Pros: Awesome performance

Cons: No display of which gear you're in.

Recommendation: Does the little display telling you which gear you're in really add that much weight, or do you just look like a n00b if you have it? Personally, I'd rather have the X7 shifters. Same performance, but with the gear display.

Pros: Everything about them, Light, Solid, Crisp,

Cons: Nothing

Recommendation: Ditto to all of the other reviews. If you can afford it. Buy IT!

Pros: SRAM, excellent shifting!

Cons: Nothing

Recommendation: As usual you'll find the 1:1 actuation, which is a huge plus, when using these trigger shifters you will never have to worry about shifting problems!
