Grip shifters often suffer from an unfounded stigma of lower quality and a less hard core reputation than their trigger shifting cousins. Not so with the SRAM GX 2x11 Grip Shifter Set. These shifters are packed with technology built to orchestrate fast, precise gear shifts to successfully navigate the trail. SRAM designed these shifters with a keen eye on speed and functionality to meet the needs of riders looking for top end grip shifting. X Actuation technology paired with Speed Metal indexing means GX Grip Shifters maintain consistent shifting across the entire cassette for predictable shifting every time. SRAM's Rolling Thunder technology uses three rows of bearings to eliminate friction and play, leading to a reduction in the force required to shift. Less effort to shift means more energy for the pedals and more attention on the trail ahead. To keep everything solidly on your handlebars, the SRAM GX 2x11 Grip Shifter Set features Jaws lock on grips that boast forged aluminum clamps on both ends of the grip and shifter interface to secure the mechanism safely in place and eliminate worries of slipping shifters along the way.
