    2011 XTR trail brakes with X0 or XX shifters

    I really like the reviews of the XTR Trail brakes. I'm heavily leaning towards them. Though, before I make the plunge, was wondering if the brake levers play well with SRAM X0 or XX shifters. Anyone with experience running this combo?

    Ive got the new XT's with XO shifters. Im fairly certain the lever design is the same with the XTR's and XT's. They fit fine next to each other, but certainly are not matchmaker compatible or anything like that

    Hope sells an adapter (matchmaker style) that'll work to mount both Shimano & Avid components. $40 i believe.

    I just sprung for the XTR trail brakes. They should be here by the end of the week. No going back now. I'll check out the hope adapter. Though these are SRAM shiters. Thanks.

    Yes they work perfectly fine together. XX Shifters with XTR Brakes. I'm very happy with the combo.
