Flat-bar shifters for SRAM Rival group?

Being a Shimano guy who never worked with SRAM stuff before, hope someone here can help with my question:

Can I use the dual-trigger SRAM shifters (SRAM SL700) with the Rival group? I'm building from the frame up my custom flat-bar road bike and I'm thinking of going with SRAM's Rival group for the drivetrain. While I liked how the derailleurs work, I don't like how the Double-Tap system works and would like a more traditional dual-trigger rapid-fire-type shifter system.

Will it work or not, and if not, what are my options (any other dual-trigger shifters that will work with Rival)?

Thanks!

All of SRAM's 10 speed system components are cross compatible across the line, mtb and road. I think it's a great idea for those who would like road components with a flat bar without having to be confined by mbt only components.
