SRAM XO Gripshift vs XO Triggers

Recommended Posts

I'm actually a roadie but ordered a mtb - should be here any day now.

 

It comes out with SRAM XO triggers - I was wondering if I should swop it with Gripshift as I had it on a previous mtb without any hassles.

 

I also often get customers bikes with sticky trigger shifters which makes me wonder what to do.

 

The triggers cost almost 3 times more which makes me wonder again...

 

What are the hardcore mtb'ers pro's and con's regarding this?

I have used both, but prefer triggers. It's a personel choice, one is not better than the other, performance, weight wise. Test both and decide for yourself. The important choice has been made; You chose SRAM.

grip shifts are the shiz...I think I still prefer paddle for the front because there are only three positions, gripshift has more because it allows you to trim.

 

 

 

but for the rear, nothing better.

I Love my grip shifts. The only problem is it looks like Sram are phasing them out. There will be no gripshifts for the 2 x 10 range (XX or any of the others)Disapprove
