It’s official! The wait is almost over. Everyone trying to convert your old 9 speed shifters to 10 speed, you can now stop! SRAM is due to release XX and XO 2x10 compatible grip shifters in April 2012. This should be a huge plus for all you weight weenies or if you just simply prefer grip shift. There’s no doubt that the first shipments of these will go fast. Get to your local bike shop and get them on order!
BENEFITS OF GRIP SHIFTERS:
· Quicker shifting through the range of gears
· No levers to break off
· Thumbs don’t hurt during long ride compared to trigger shifters
· Less expensive and more affordable!
