" Best thing I did for my bike was to turf those fussy, squeaking, impossible to adjust Avids and buy these XT's. Super powerful, one finger operation every time. I haven't tried the XTR's but I just can't imagine how they could be better than the XT's. Lighter maybe? I matched them with a 205mm disc on the front and a 180mm on the rear. Me plus the bike weighs 117kg and I never even have to think about using two fingers to pull up. If you are a normal size then you won't need to go bigger than 160mm discs. Don't hesitate, just buy them. "

Tough and reliable pedals
Posted4 July 2011
" These things last forever in tough conditions. I've got two bikes and run these on both. I've tried the XTR's in the past and sure they're trick but heaps more expensive and when the bearings collapse and they fall apart in the middle of the bush, all of a sudden those few grams of weight saving don't mean so much. These ones have gone twice as long as the XTR's in much tougher conditions and are still going strong. "

Ok but not very warm
Posted4 July 2011
" In the picture they look nice and warm but in reality they're pretty thin. Keeps a bit of wind out but that's about it. If you've got a big head like me it's a tight fit as they only come in one size. "
Pros: Attractive, Lightweight
Cons: Poor Fit, doesn't keep wind out

 X9 10 Speed (2x10) Trigger Shifter Set
X9 10 Speed (2x10) Trigger Shifter Set
No matter what you throw at it, SRAM X9 keeps coming back for more. The all-new X9 family puts the SRAM 2x10's unrivaled shift speed and smoothness within easy reach of racers and experianced enthusiasts alike.
 

Is the front shifter compatible with a 3 ring derailleur.

The blurb talks about a 2x10 setup but the compatibility section seems to indicate that it is compatible with a triple derailleur. I've got a 3x10 with X7 derailleur on the front and an X9 on the rear. Are the X9 pair of shifters compatible with this.

Compatible with old shifters

I have a 2004 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR that I want to put these on to replace the Avid Juicy 7's. I am planning on getting rotors as well - just want to make sure that the levers are compatible with the old shifters or whether I need to replace those as well.

Thanks,
Mark
I have the same bike and did exactly what you are doing. They don't exactly marry in with each other perfectly but it's not a problem. Just find the best position and it works fine. Brakes are awesome you will love the improve over those Avids.

Does it come with hose?

Yes although you'll have to trim the hose to fit your bike as they are too long. You need to buy a cable cutter and a new "olive" for where the hose joins the master cylinder. If you are careful and don't let too much fluid drain out you won't have to bleed the line.

I have a size 56 head - is this product too big for my head?

I'm measuring just above my ears. I assume this is the correct measurement?
I've got a 63 (yes 63) head and it just squeezed over mine. 56 should be fine.
