I am in the process of looking into switching my touring bike over to 1x11 from a current 3x9 arrangement.
I would like to reduce weight for faster gravel rides and maintain my lower gears while giving up some of my upper gearing.
I would like to do a 32 or 34 tooth front chain ring with an 11-50, 11 speed cassette while using road shifters.
Would a SRAM 22 road shifter work with an Eagle 12 speed deralleur to pull the chain properly into gear?
Has anyone figured out how to get a 1x11 with a 50t rear to work with road shifters?
Thank you for your help!
I don't know what the cage option does, but it would probably be wise to get it.
I think with a 36 and 10-50 you'd have a wide range of gears, just depends on if you can deal with the gear jumps or not.
After looking at the derailleur cages they appear to be for mountain bike derailleurs only.
Would a mountain derailleur work with a road shifter?
Overall, I do not mind what parts are used, but I would like to get a 50 tooth rear with a road shifter if possible.

A- A SRAM Eagle derailleur has the same cable pull as an 11 speed SRAM derailleur?
B- If so, JTEK makes the Shiftmate 9 which allows a SRAM road shifter to work with a SRAM rear derailleur
I have not found anyone who has tried a SRAM 22 shifter with an Eagle derailleur and the Shiftmate to cover an 11-50/10-50/etc. cassette
Thank you all for your responses!

I wouldn't use it for any sort of competitive riding but for touring I'd imagine it would work fine.
