- SRAM Attack twist shifters?
Have been using a pair on my hybrid/commuter with XT drivetrain for the last five years or so. Flawless operation, last well. Compared to the XO I suspect they are basically the same shifter painted a different colour, as the grips are interchangeable. In fact, that’s the only gripe I have that the ‘Amy’ grips that come on the Attack are too small for my large sweaty hands, so changed them for a pair of the XO grips straight away.Posted 4 years agoneilmMember
I have both attack and X0 in 3 x 9 and as far as I can tell, exactly as perthmtb said, they appear to be basically the same shifter with a different finish.
I have used the Attacks on / off for the last year and a half, all through what was laughingly known as a summer in 2012 and have had no issues at all, and they still feel and look like new… apart from the ingrained mud!Posted 4 years agoperthmtbMember

There’s two different options for the front shifter – 3-speed which only has three indexed shifts, and micro-adjust which allows you to fine tune the position of the front shifter. IMHO, if you have your FD set up properly you shouldn’t need micro-adjust, and in fact just gives you more possibility of cage rubbing…Posted 4 years agolovewookieMember
I’ve been running either rocket or attack gripshifts from their start. Before that it was sachs wavy or plasma’s. All run with XTR rapid rise mechs.
excellent, lightweight and reliable. The only potential issue is that when they get a bit old and sloppy the end of the shifter can start to wear into carbon bars. Not had an issue with recent ones, but 1st gen ones without SRS were a bit of a problem.Posted 4 years ago
