Santa Cruz has a deal with SRAM, so almost everything is spec-ed with SRAM components, and my guess is the XT stuff costs them more. Given the hell-disaster that SRAM GX 12-speed and the brakes have been for us, I personally would choose the XT. Where I live (Santa Cruz), it seems like everyone has one of these bikes. You pay a lot for the label and the frame warranty.
