 It's the shit... 'nough said. Apparently not, Pinkbike wants me to say more. Well, lever position is amazing and shifts true and crisp every time. Only go X0 if u want the small weight savings and an adjustable lever blade... which you dont need because the X9 is in prime position.

 This is by far one of the best shifters for the price. It shifts very well and precise. When shifted, it feels very solid. Also, its super easy to install and fits very well with most brakes. The only con about these brakes is... nothing! The levers are perfectly positioned and are the perfect length. If price is a factor, go with these and you will not regret it. If price isnt a factor, go with the X0. The only difference weight. They perform exactly the same.

 After a lifetime of riding with Shimano components, I went on the recommendations of a few trusted riders and tried SRAM...I'll never go back to Shimano! There is absolutely no comparison to SRAM's 100% positive engagement, there's no trimming-on-the-go...just straight goodness! HIGHLY Recommended!

 Best shifters I've ever had. Matched with an X-9 rear derailleur, the shifting is crisp and instantaneous. I've ridden a lot of Shimano stuff over the years, but personally prefer SRAM's 1:1 ratio. There is a ton of trickle-down XO technology in these. For the price/performance, why get anything else?

 pros: very positive feeling shift up or down. very reliable shifts. easy to set up, adjust and maintain. very durable

cons: expensive compared to sram x7 shifter but better priced than a shimano xt shifter.

The X9 is hands down the best performing shifter on the market for the money. The shifting is crisp and feels positive- meaning you really know when you have made a downshift or upshift.

 Just as good as the X.0 offering from them that I have on my XC bike, but with a very slight weight penalty. Stronger clamp, lever and top cap for DH use, I use one on my Demo, and an X.0 for my XC bike, they mechanically perform exactly the same, just no lever blade adjustment. The best bang for the buck!

 Its SRAM, so thats good enough by itself. But its lever position is well though out. Both are easily accsesable from the thumb, which is great, since you odnt have to take your finger off the brake to shift. And the barrel adjusted stays still and is effective.

 I love SRAM for the precision shifting and how well it stays in tune. I've used this on a few of my bikes and I just love the feel of each shift up and down. Shimano has a bit of lag in my opinion where these are right on.

 Awesome shifter. Upgraded to the x.9 after my X.7 failed on me. The difference is astronomical. Only problem is maintenance is a tad difficult. But you have to sacrifice something for such an ace product.

 Great design, really comfortable and mates to the avid levers perfectly. When used with the X9 short cage rear mech your set. It has the most solid shifting i've ever experienced!

 That is so good! I have that on my DH bike. derailleur is X.7 and they work well together. It`s also very easy to change gears on the trail because you need only one finger!

 LOVE the crispness of the shifts, and the one-to-one ratio. Also the fact that you don't have to take off your braking finger is greater than people realize.

 Effortless shift, crisp, very low maintenance and pretty reliable. The aluminum lever can be slippery if you are shifting in a hurry under the rain

 Sturdy design, easy to reach and shifts when you want it to, doesn't get in the way when you're fumbling with the grips. These last a long, long time.

 I have the 2011 model and i love it! SRAM is the best you can buy. I use it on my downhill and have never ever had it come loose or change gears expectingly. Just buy it.

 These are sick shifters. I run them on my Rocky Mtn Slayer and they havent missed a shift yet and I dont think that they ever will.

 Great shifting, feels good, like the double thumb shiftign 2. Alot cheaper then the X0 shifter which makes this a very appealing shifter.
Hockeynut recomends it

 works great for DH FR never missed a shift. I run mine with an X.7 derailleur because it doesn't have to be fancy and it is cheaper to replace.

 Crisp and percise shifting is always a pluss. Takes almost no time to get used to the impulse way of shifting.

 Very reliable, easy use. I use it for freeride and it has not failed me so far. Bang for the buck and its CRISPY.

 Really responsive and easy adjustment, however in some cases the coil doesn't return the trigger back in position
