SRAM X1 11-Speed X-Horizon Rear Derailleur
With the introduction of X1, SRAM brings their popular 1x11 speed drivetrain to the masses. X1 uses much of the same technology of X01 with more price-conscious material choices. In the case of the SRAM X1 X-Horizon Rear Derailleur the only main difference is an alloy cage instead of carbon. Adding all of 4 grams to the design and saving you more of that hard earned cash. Every detail of the 11-speed X1 X-HORIZON rear derailleur is engineered for smooth, reliable shifting action€”from the larger upper pulley offset to the 12-tooth X-SYNC pulley wheels. By eliminating unwanted chain movement, X-HORIZON shifts faster, puts an end to ghost shifting and reduces shift force and chain slap. And with CAGE LOCK technology, wheel removal and installation are easier than ever. SRAM X1, X01, and XX1 are all cross compatible with each other, allowing you combine parts from each if desired.

In terms of shifting it is all in the feel wanted weather you pick sram or shimano.
Sram is a more race like feel were the next gear is press , bang, boom its there and your keeping your cadence without the lag. But you get the solid engagement knock feel like that of a race car transmission.
Shimano is slower but smoother feel more like that of a luxury car. Its press, quarter pedal stroke, it slides, its there.
What are you looking for a want to be fast and aggresive race car type of rider that wants to bang gears coming into the next section and slay the track leaving dust behind or are you looking to drive that lexus down the highway riding smooth and comfortable as you take the steady cadence and long miles.
