SRAM adds a "2-by" option to their line up of front shifters. The X.7 series shares much of the same DNA of X.9 and X.0 level components and is great blend of performance and affordability.
The X.7 trigger shifters feature SRAM's proven 1:1 actuation ratio (shifter cable travel : derailleur movement) for 10 speed rear shifting. EA helps to simplify/stabilize the uneasy act of balancing rear derailleur hanger design, tight cog spacing and exact cable tension. The result is the easiest index shifting system to set up and stays that way.
Another great benefit of the X.7 line up is that it is MatchMaker compatible. With the MatchMaker you can save weight and clutter on the handlebar. This system holds Avid levers, a number of SRAM triggers and the RockShox PushLoc control- all with one tidy, light clamp.

Q: I'm looking into adding a front derailleur to a mountain bike that currently has a single front chainring and a 9 speed SRAM X7 rear cassette. I saw this on the details tab: "SRAM does not recommend the 2 speed shifter for 2x9 configurations". Does this statement mean that I should get a 3 speed shifter for a 2x9 configuration, which is what I would have? Also, just to confirm, this is the left side trigger shifter right? Thanks.
A: This is referring to the fact that Sram does not recommend using this 2spd shifter on a 9 speed drivetrain as they are designed for 10 speeds.
