SRAM uses a different cable pull ratio than Shimano for the ESP components. Shimano uses 1.7:1 (1mm of cable pull moves the derailleur by 1.7mm), and SRAM uses 1.2:1. Therefore Shimano shifters won't work with ESP derailleurs and Shimano derailleurs won't work with ESP shifters. Only Shimano-compatible derailleurs from SRAM will work with Shimano barends, but then you lose the advantage of the ESP cable pull ratio.
