If this has been covered somewhere else I apologize for bringing it up again, but I haven't seen this answered. It seems logical that they would be limited to 2 rings, but the S-works SJ has a triple ring setup and is running these shifters. Do they have a special made piece or, are all XX front triggers capable of shifting three rings? Anyone that owns a set care to chime in?

btw, the manual on sram's site states 2 ring compatibility only

I think it runs an X.0 Front shifter.

ie you would have to run an XO front trigger. The internals of the new XX have only 1 up and then 1 down.

K, that makes sense. I was about to pull the trigger(no pun intended) on a XX shifter set. But I can't justify spending more for a less capable piece of equipment so I'll probably go the same way that specialized did and use the X.0. for the front and the XX for the rear. I run a 2x9 already but I don't like the idea of not being able to run a triple if I decided to. So I guess I'll have mismatched shifters
