SRAM X9 Trigger Shifters $0.00
Since trickling down ten-speed technology from their top-of-the-line XX group, SRAM made the choice to offer both 2x and 3x options for X9. These X9 3x10 Trigger Shifters are specifically designed to shift a triple compatible front derailleur across three chain rings as well as effect ten-speed gear changes in back. The major difference between these and X0 shifters is that X9s get bearings in the bushings instead of the pivot. Another difference is the X9's lever position can't be adjusted like it can on the X0, so if you've suffered a hand injury and adjustment is paramount, you might want to consider the X0.
The left shifter is specific for 10-speed triple front derailleurs. Both shifters are Matchmaker-X compatible, meaning you can mount them on one clamp along with your brake levers and X-Loc remote for your fork if you have it. The benefit is that your handlebars will be less cluttered and the Matchmaker-X system saves weight over multiple clamps.
Like SRAM's top-shelf offerings, these X9 Shifters use its Exact Actuation Technology to ensure quick and precise shifts. The essence of this system is that it uses a 1:1 ratio for cable pull/derailleur movement. The result is easy setup, adjustment, and a system that is more tolerant of slight cable stretch and/or friction in the housing. Cable replacement is easy; simply open up the cable port, pull out the old cable, and thread in the new one.
The SRAM X9 2x10 Trigger Shifters come with a Grey finish. They're designed to work with all SRAM MTB double front and ten-speed rear derailleurs.
- Exact Actuation 1:1 ratio means cable movement is equal to derailleur movement, providing reliability, easy setup, and effortless actuation
- MatchMaker clamp available separately to reduce cockpit clutter and weight

X9 Shifter is a good shifter as it was STD equip on another bike I have. This unit does not come with any way to secure to the handlebar unless you already have a SRAM Matchmaker system in place.
Don't be fooled about seeing the clamp bracket here as I was. A clamp (you'll need to get somewhere else) will run another $20-30.
Note that Competitive Cyclist was able to make-good for me on this issue. Great company.
Good all around!
I use the X9 shifter on all my bikes, paired with the X9 derailleur they shift fast, easy to adjust, and don't cost a arm and a leg.
