Super crisp, ultra bling, shitproof shifting, but the price is just silly

SRAM’s flagship trigger is loaded with precious materials, but does that add more price than performance?

The Zero Loss system gives superbly crisp, fast shifts that are secure and positive in the roughest conditions. The cam assisted equalised front shift and 1:1 ratio rear help in dirty cable or high torque situations too, making this the best ‘adverse conditions’ set-up available.

Hovering your thumb over the release button offsets the single shift limit, and the rear lever can be adjusted for sweep, potential shift range and sideways positioning. You’ll need the combo clamp to fit flush with Formula Oro though, and however good it feels it’s obscenely expensive, considering XTR is comparable in every other respect.
