The story with X01 Grip Shift is similar, the so-called Speed Metal indexing and ball bearing design carrying over from XX1. Like the X01 trigger, the X01 Grip Shift uses aluminium in place of carbon for part of the lever body.
Jaws™: Once the Grip Shift shifter and grip interlock securely, forged aluminium clamps on either end reinforce the assembly by locking tightly to handlebar.
Rolling Thunder™: Three rows of ball bearings provide zero friction or play—reducing the force needed to shift and promoting long-term performance under all weather conditions with Grip Shift.
Speed Metal™: Full metal, 11-speed indexing keeps shifting crisp and precise with Grip Shift.
X-Actuation™: Developed specifically for SRAM 1X, X-ACTUATION keeps shifting sharp and consistent across the entire 10- to 42-tooth cassette.
