    Shift more.

    Amidst the buzzing hype surrounding the new SRAM Eagle's 12-speed flashy cassette and chain designs, we'd be remiss to ignore the stellar functionality of the SRAM X01 Eagle 12-Speed Trigger Shifter. SRAM treats the X01 Eagle 12-Speed Trigger Shifter with as much detailed attention as the rest of the drivetrain and introduces well-executed updates that build on its 11-speed predecessor's success to get the most out of your ride.

    In addition to its ability to shift through a staggering 12-cog cassette, the X01 Eagle Trigger Shifter features a brand new internal shifting mechanism that results in a more precise trigger feel and smoother shift action compared to its 11-speed predecessor. It also still includes SRAM's Zero Loss technology for nearly instant shift response when you throw the lever heading into a steep climb or revving up out of a corner.

    The updated internals boast improved longevity, as well as the ability to upshift by five gears at a time. The shifter also comes with SRAM's Matchmaker compatibility, allowing it to integrate cleanly with the rest of your cockpit and letting you keep the shifter, as well as various suspension and dropper post remotes, arranged in one easy-to-access location on the bars.

    • New internals for faster, more reliable shifts
    • Able to upshift five cogs at a time
    • Durable, lightweight aluminum body
    • Item #SRM00AA

    Best shifter in the line up.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my preferred shifter for an Eagle groupset. I am currently using it with a GX group and it makes the whole experience better. The adjustable paddle and light action are significantly better than GX or NX shifters, and this does not have the exorbitant price tag of the XX1.

    Among All Levels, This is IT

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    All EAGLE components work across levels, (XX plays well with NX and vise versa) but only the X0 and XX shifters have the adjustable upshift paddle. The SRAM shifter is highly adjustable with their matchmaker clamp but I found the upshift paddle of the GX a little less ergonomic. Get that paddle right, and you can jump 5 upshifts with a single swoop. Coming down the cassette is crisp, fast, and positive, just like you'd expect from SRAM.

    Why is the return lever so short?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Okay, first off, Sram drivetrains are silky smooth and I love them. I prefer almost every aspect of Sram drivetrains over Shimano, except for one huge glaring miss... why is the return lever so freakin' short?

    At least for me, my thumb is at it's longest when using the longer downshift lever (the one in front). From there, the radius arch of my thumb is moving away from the shifter, so I have to make an un-natural movement with my hand and reduce my grip on the bar to perform a downshift. Anatomically and ergonomically, this leaves me scratching my head and wondering who tested these things for Sram.

    You may wonder why I have put up with this and not been using Shimano then. One word... Eagle. That's right, I'm a weenie and love that 50t bail out gear. However, Eagle's reign of soaring high above Shimano on the cog number game is about to come to a quick close. Finally Shimano has released a 12 speed drivetrain and that just means it's a matter of time before it trickles down to XT and SLX. Then I can have my 12 speed drivetrain with a comfortable shifter that's actually made for the human hand. Not to mention the option if using your index finger to downshift!

    Nice and solid

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great shifter with smooth action. The adjustable lever is great so you can really dial in the position so you are not reaching for a shift. Add in the Matchmaker with your Guide RSC brakes and your cockpit is looking nice and clean!


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Really one of my favorite pieces from my my new drive train. I spent a year using the previous gen GX shifter and this is a significant upgrade. The internal bearing as opposed to busing makes for a much crisper shift! Sometime I feel like this thing knows I want to shift before I do. Very intuitive and ergonomic. Pro tip: If your'e riding in the rain a lot or snow biking, cut a little piece of skate board grip tape out in the shape of the trigger and you will never slip your thumb again.

    Very nice

      Very nice craftsmanship in this shifter over the GX. All the machining and finish makes for a nice setup. Either have your LBS setup, or take great care in setting this up yourself. So far riding has allowed me to up the front chainring in size, allowing for faster downhill descents. Aside from the high price point, there’s not much to complain about with the X01 setup. Shifts are smooth, crisp and precise.


        SRAM has got it figured out. This thing is dialed! The entire Eagle system is a huge game changer. I can't wait to get out on my bike more.

        It shifts!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        No complaints. Not much to say about a shifter, other than it does what the name says, and does it well/smooth. Plus, the range of gears you can go over with one push of the thumb is an added bonus.


        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have been loving the new SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain. It has performed with minimal maintenance—not recommended—and helped pursue my passion to ride diverse terrain with one bike. With any new technology in the bike world, there is a cost to getting on the newest and greatest advancements—the Eagle is fresh to the market and currently the only 1x12 drivetrain available—and the price tag reflects the exclusivity. Per usual, prices do tend to drop after time (although there is no concrete evidence of that happening anytime soon). However, even as is, I think the price tag associated with the new 1x12 systems is well worth the money and will only increase any on-trail experience and offer a whole new range to you daily ride.

        Clean and precise.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Clean and precise, the quick engagement allows you to find the perfect gear in a pinch. Pairs will with sram brakes to keep you handle bars nice and clean.

        It goes click.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        It clicks, and the derailleur shifts. It feels almost exactly the same as the 11 speed version, with an extra click. The paddles are a TOUCH longer than the 11, which is nice, makes them easier to find when hammering a downhill looking for a downshift.


        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The extra gear you have been wishing for is finally here. Eagle is really quick and clean shifting. Now you have a 50 tooth bail out gear for those long and hard climbs. I personally jumped up to a 36 tooth chain ring to have a larger gear. With that 36 tooth, when the chain is in the 50 tooth gear it is still easier than when I had 34 tooth.

        Snap! Bam!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Quick and direct shifts are on offer with this shifter. It also will pair well with your Sram Guide brakes for an uncluttered cockpit.

        Unanswered Question

        So I bought this shifter for a new bike I'm building. I won't be running SRAM brakes, as I have Zee brakes already. This shifter didn't come with any clamp at all to attach the shifter to the bars. I've been told by others that it should come with the Matchmaker X clamp, but I've also been told by others the OE versions don't come with the clamp. This doesn't seem to be the OE version though, as it comes in a nice pretty box. Can anyone confirm any of this? I have a worthless shifter for the time being, and having to buy additional parts to mount a shifter makes me more inclined to return everything I bought.
