SRAM's X1 was designed to deliver the best of one-by-11 technology at a lower price point than its XX1 and X01, meaning that a wider audience is now able to experience the simplicity and durability that a one-by setup provides, without breaking the bank in the process.
The X1 trigger shifter employs much of the same technology found in SRAM's top XX1, minus the carbon fiber covers and shift paddles. In place of the composite, aluminum has been applied. The single shifter uses SRAM's X-Actuation and Zero Loss to keep shifting precise, uniform, and dependable across the cassette. Like the Exact-Actuation ratio that SRAM developed for its 10-speed road group, SRAM has deviated from its bread-and-butter, 1:1 pull ratio. Now, X1 uses SRAM's new cable-pull ratio system to deliver a more uniform and accurate derailleur movement, with less applied force required from the user.
The shifter also comes with a MatchMaker X compatible clamp. This creates easier accessibility and a clean aesthetic by placing your XLoc suspension controls securely next to your shifter. Our favorite result from the use of a single shifter is that your bars now have more options for where you can mount your remote seatpost control. X1 has made the bars a truly blank canvas for all of the burgeoning buttons and levers that are taking over our cockpits.
The SRAM X1 11-speed Trigger Shifter is and available in the color Black and is only compatible with SRAM X1 components.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The internals are exactly the same too so you’ll only notice a slightly stiffer front trigger feel in comparison to an XX1 trigger, which will set you back twice as much.

with 11-speed goodies as pricey as they are, this shifter works as good as any and is set at a great price!
