Looking at that price and weight list it seems to me SRAM is still winning, especially with GX being bout a hundred grams lighter and a hundred bucks cheaper than XT. Certainly seems like people are happy with GX. Plus it uses the XD driver which is much more ubiquitous out there. I think Shimano made a big mistake in not using the XD driver to try and reestablish some degree of standardization in a ridiculously fragmented industry. Certainly if I were to upgrade my current 11 spd XT drivetrain to 12 spd I think I’d go Eagle GX based on the lower price, weight, and fact that I could reuse my existing wheel set.
