First Look – Sram X0 10spd Grip Shift (Updated)

Friday, February 17th, 2012

This morning we were invited to snap some of the very first public photos of the soon to be release 10spd Grip Shift that so many have been waiting for. While most of the technical details are under wraps for the time being, what we were shown is very exciting.

The shifter itself has been completely redesigned and has some features that have not been seen on previous iterations of grip shift. At first glance, the minimalistic design is a small departure from previous generations. The rubber flange portion is the tallest profile section and everything tapers down from there. Underneath the shifter, a separate locking collar has been used to secure the shifter to the bar. Again a slight departure from previous generations where the locking seciong was “more integrated” but requiring a larger profile.
