Thanks to the lever-sweep angle adjustment on SRAM’s thumb gear shifter for X01 and XX1 models – whether that’s 11- or 12-speed variants – it’s possible to customise your shifter paddle with PNW Components’ new Shifty Lever, with one of five colours to choose from.
It uses the same bolt-on system as SRAM’s own shifter paddle, so it should be possible to swap out and adjust the Shifty Lever in a matter of minutes.
For $39, you’ve really got to love matching colours! PNW Components
The Shifty Lever’s design has been inspired by the Canadian brand’s own Loam Lever for dropper posts.
It’s made from CNC-machined stainless steel and has a large injection moulded thumb pad to help your thumb grip the shifter paddle, even in the grottiest and wettest conditions.
It’s available in teal, orange and red (pictured) and more muted grey and black tones, if stealth is your tipple.

The Shifty Lever will cost $39, so it’s not cheap.
However, an official OEM SRAM X01 or XX1 shifter lever replacement part costs roughly the same amount, so the Shifty Lever might be the perfect replacement for a broken SRAM paddle.
