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.

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."
