I'd say never. As the non-pneumatic tire technology improves, so does the pneumatic tire technology. I can't rule out a non-pneumatic technology leapfrog, but I can't imagine it happening.

It's an indexed Microshift. Doesn't have friction mode (you can adjust friction but can't disable click-stops). Feels fine, nice and tight and clicky.

I know what the cause is: the jarring from the bump, together with the spring in the RD, shifts the RD into a smaller cog. The shock+spring overpowers the friction and click-stops in the shifter.
