    SRAM XX Trigger Shifters vs. Grip shifts

    Hi.

    What is the difference in weight between the Sram XX trigger shifters to the XX Grip shifts?

    About 290g for the Gripshifts, 190g for the triggers. Thumbies and TT500's get down to 140g (for the true WW).

    so taking into account cables and jaws - the grip shifts are lighter?

    My XO grip shifters weigh 212g with cables and bar clamp is integrated into the shifter.
    XO grips weigh 76g, pretty light actually.
    Grip shift wins
    If the XX grippies weigh the same as the XO's, they would be very close in weight to the XX triggers with a normal bar clamp, probably lighter. I don't have a normal bar clamp, but would bet it weighs more than the matchmaker mount.

    I have the clamp to match up to my Hope brakes and they weigh 44g a pair with Ti bolts

    I also have a pair of the matchmakers and they weigh 22g a pair

    Grip shifters are still lighter, but not as light as the XO 9 speed

    P.S the new Grip Shifters are awesome.

    Nice. So the bar clamp for the triggers is only 11g, same as the matchmacker. The cables on my XO grip shifters is teflon coated, unlike the Gore cables on the XX grip shifters. I wonder if that is a difference of the 5g?
