    XX trickle down?
    i'm assuming XX will eventually trickle down into the X0 and X9 lines etc. Does anyone have any idea if i'm right and when this might happen?

    what features are you looking for? some of the "XX tech" is already there.

    looking at the 2 x 10 because of the gear ratio's, chainlines, run any combination of gears, and the front shifting.

    I think this counts as trickle down:

    Wow, carbon der. cage and brake levers for X7? That is pretty sweet trickle down. My guess is the Elixir CR will be X9 level and the Elixir CR MAG would be X0. Just a guess.

    Looking forward to demoing that x7 group for sure. If the quality is on par with the elixir r brakes it'll be sweet!

    Our local SRAM importer confirmed that X.0 and X.9 are also going 10 speed next year.

    All I want is a SRAM 10 speed grip shifter(s) that will work on/with all my XO dérailleurs.

    So far the wear is about the same as RaceFace rings...
    The shifting performance of the eight shift ramps is what I'm really sold on..

    I've got ExtraLites whole collection of MTB rings.
