SRAM X.5 Trigger Shifters
With race-ready performance and technology, X5 components help off-road enthusiasts take it to the next level. With smooth, precise ESP shifting and legendary SRAM 9-speed performance, X5 brings out the best in any bike—and in every rider.
i upgraded to these from a sram x4 8 spd setup to a 9 speed and the joy of having some extra gears is a awesome thing. the feeling of the trigger shifters to my old x4 was a nite and day difference. i recommend these to any one going from 8 spd-9spd. sram is way better then the other "s" company out there.
These shifters are an excellent product from SRAM. I had to put them on my bike because i put a SRAM rear derailleur on and the 1:1 technology screwed some stuff up. I like that these are robust and give an audible click sound. They are very crisp and look good too. Much better than the mushy-feeling Deore's on before.
Flawless operation for three years and still going strong.
