No shifts needed.
2016 witnessed a rebranding of SRAM's ever popular Force CX1 groupset as Force 1, and an expanded focus of one-by drivetrains for gravel and road applications. With that expansion, SRAM also introduced a Rival 1 drivetrain for those of us pining over one-by simplicity and looking for a more budget-conscious option.
Boasting much of the same technology as its more expensive sibling, Rival 1 delivers exceptional functionality for cyclocross, road, and gravel excursions. While the SRAM Rival 1 Brake Lever weighs in a bit heavier than its carbon-endowed Force 1 counterpart, its forged aluminum lever brings with it a significantly lower price point without sacrificing SRAM's renowned precision—not to mention the improved odds of emerging from a one-on-one scuffle with gravel unscathed.
The Rival 1 Shift Lever utilizes the same Reach Adjust technology found in SRAM's top-line offerings to provide a customizable reach distance, which keeps the lever perfectly in reach no matter your hand size. The hoods also feature ergonomic shaping for an extra bit of comfort over rough roads.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
You simply cannot beat the performance of Rival for the price when building a 1x cross setup.
1x for life (at least when off-road)
Simple Brake Lever for a Apex 1, Rival 1, Force 1, or, Red 1 builds.
