Review: 6 Months with SRAM'S Wireless Eagle AXS XX1 Drivetrain
3 things. 1. It wakes up on any movement. So how much battery is it sucking while hanging off my truck on a multi-day road trip? 2. If I really needed/wanted electronic shifting, I'd buy Archer Components D1X Trail system for $390 or probably cheaper with one of their 15% off sales.. Works with any derailleur, 10, 11, 12, or 13 speeds... Possibly the ergonomics aren't as good as the AXS, but after reading the review, didn't sound like Levy was 100% on those either. 3. What happens when you bend your hanger on a ride? How easy is AXS to adjust and get your bike to stay in a gear again? The trim adjustment feature on D1x is adjustable to each gear which theoretically make it easier to adjust the system to a wider range of functioning gears than a global trim adjust like on AXS with a mangled hanger (and maybe damaged derailleur).

The US distributor CycleMonkey has been hitting the festival circuit pretty hard the last couple of years with their demo fleet.

@phops: yes. Thanks for acknowledging you haven't used the pinion shifter. It's not nearly as good or precise or ergonomic as a Sram gripshift. And hardly anyone likes those either. The Taniwha was my quiver of one for 2 years and 1,400 miles. A trigger shifter would have made it much better. Shifting while not having to crank isn't really much of a real-world on-the-trail advantage except when stopped on the trail or in the parking lot. If Pinion could reduce the drag while pedaling and provide a better shifter, I'd happily take the weight penalty in exchange for the superior suspension performance and not having to worry about Derailleur damage or maintenance. I'd even accept the unavoidable loss of momentum when downshifting under load.
