Description

Command control.

Working as the command center of your GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, the SRAM GX Eagle 12-Speed Trigger Shifter brings your drivetrain to life with its razor-sharp shift actuation across all 12 gears. Part of SRAM's GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, this shifter offers the same performance you've come to expect from Eagle, but at a palatable price that's sure to leave room for post-ride brews and weekend trips to your favorite trails. SRAM saves costs with its plastic body, which is paired with a forged aluminum shifter for improved ergonomics and durability.

Another cost-conscious hack, the engineers at SRAM employ a bushing instead of a bearing used in the X01 and XX1 shifters, which isn't noticeable on the trail, considering it still has X-Actuation and Zero Loss technologies for crisp shifts with zero lag. Surprisingly, the GX Eagle 12-Speed Trigger Shifter is lighter than its XO1 sibling at only 122 grams, meaning you won't have to sacrifice weight at this lower price. Best of all, it's fully compatible with the X01 and XX1 Eagle 12-speed drivetrains, so you can use it as a budget-friendly replacement in case of a catastrophic crash.

  • Compatible with Eagle 1x12 drivetrains: GX, XO1, XX1
  • Updated for better feel, precision, and durability
  • Plastic shifter body with forged aluminum trigger
  • X-Actuation promotes sharp shifts across all gears
  • ZeroLoss for instantaneous shifts without hesitation

Great product

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Works great with the eagle setup. Can shift several gears up or down on a single push of the trigger. Very happy with it.

Pairs Nicely

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The GX Eagle Trigger Shifter pairs perfectly with the exceptional GX Eagle Rear Derailleur. While the shifter feel is not quite the same as other SRAM shifters, the mechanical accuracy is readily recognizable. Shift action is accurate and reliable, as befits a SRAM product.

Best bang for your buck MTB drivetrain

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you are looking at upgrading to Eagle and confused about all the different models, let me break it down for you. XX1 Eagle is the top of the line with a hollow pin chain and single piece milled Cromoly cassette. X01 saves about two Benjamins and is functionality the same except for weighing 40g more than the XX1. The GX eagle cuts some corners, using a standard chain design and the cassette is stamped and riveted like a normal cassette instead of milled.
FUNCTIONALLY THE GX EAGLE IS THE SAME AS THE XX1 AND X01. I cannot stress this enough. The only reason to go with the X01 or XX1 over the GX eagle is if you are an super extreme XC rider trying to save every gram or just really like gold and willing to drop and extra grand. With that cleared up, onto the review.
Installation.
The Sram GX eagle is surprisingly straightforward to install. Sram has a fantastic video that breaks down the installation and adjustment to a 10 minute video. With the proper tools it took me an hour, included the time it took to install the XD driver. But if your bike already has an XD driver, installation is a breeze.
Performance.
The smoothest shifting I have ever had the pleasure of using. With every gear change the chain seems to lock perfectly into the next chainring, even when downshifting 5 or 6 gears at once. With the narrow wide design being utilized on the jockey wheel as well as front chaining, I have had no issue with the chain slipping or coming off, even after testing it off some intense drops on a hardtail. The clutch keeps the chain very taught and prevents it from slapping around on rocky sections.
Overall the best drivetrain for the dollar right now. The only complaint I have about the GX groupset is I am not a fan of the front chainring mounting design on the new cranks. Save some money and use your old cranks and just purchase the drivetrain. I'll take my old XTR four bolt cranks with a Raceface chainring over the Xsync design anyday.

Best Bang for Your Buck

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I now have two bikes with a GX Eagle drivetrain and had previously come off one with a X01 Eagle drivetrain and have been thoroughly impressed with it. Shifting is still plenty crisp with it once properly tuned and I can honestly say it performs nearly as well as X01 shifter. The weight difference is nill in my opion (GX Eagle shifter being 122g vs X01 Eagle being 109g according to Pinkbike).



Sram Matchmaker makes for easy and clean integration with Sram Guide brakes. It allows for plenty of adjustment for the correct ergonomic feel.



I personally prefer the feel of Sram's shifter (over Shimano), though it is personal preference. These feel like any other of their recent version and I was nothing but impressed with it. If you're in need of a upgrade to your drivetrain, the GX Eagle is a budget friendly option that performs well above its price tag.

Amazing performance

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Hard to believe the XX1 is better, specially considering the price difference

Awesome Shifter

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great shifter at a really awesome price. These work super well and don't break the bank. Such a nice way to get into the eagle drive train system.

Smooth

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Super smooth shifting of the gears, great fell and can't beat the price! Picked it up as part of the Eagle GX group set and super happy with the upgrade.

Increase Your Range

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For the last two years I have been riding X01 Eagle on my bikes. As much as I love X01 Eagle I appreciate saving money. When SRAM announced they would be releasing GX Eagle I was very excited. GX Eagle is the perfect balance of performance and price. This shifter is smooth, direct, and compared to its siblings only weighs a few grams more. I highly recommend this shifter.

Go 12 speeds

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The GX eagle has arrived and this 12 speed shifter will keep things running smooth.

The matchmaker clamp pairs up nicely with Sram brakes for a clean looking setup.


Blue collar eagle

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Not sure I can tell the difference between this and its pricier brethren. All the weight difference seems to be in the cassette and cranks--not shifter.

It works....

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It works, but not as nice as the X01 shifter. It's like buying Old crow Whiskey, compared to Makers Mark whiskey. They both get the job done, but one is so much more enjoyable. I put the GX parts on my fat bike, as that's just a beast to ride anyways. Reliability seems to be there however, and I have no complaints in that department.

This goes past 11

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great shifter in a great group at a great price. If you want to up the game on a GX Eagle setup, get the X01 shifter. X01 will give you bearings vs bushing (smoother feeling shifter), lighter materials, and a clockable shifter lever. If you're not worried about the small stuff, the GX Eagle shifter will do the job reliably, and do it well.

Works great, feels different

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Makes the derailleur move and the shifter change cogs, so that works well. It does feel a bit different than xo1/xx1 eagle stuff, with a bit more of a mechanical feel and less of a smooth click when changing gears. The shift paddles are a touch smaller, but not so much that I have ever had an issue finding them for a quick shift.

Stellar Review from Singletrackworld

    "The thing about the new GX Eagle drivetrain is that it just works. The shifting out back is smooth, and chain retention up front is impeccable. There are some differences in ergonomics between the GX shifter and SRAM’s more expensive options, but it’s the sort of you-wouldn’t-know-till-you-tried-it thing. The cassette is an incredible piece of engineering, and particularly when it comes in at nearly a third of the price of the XX1 cassette."
