SUPER RECORD FRONT DERAILLEUR
The new mechanical Super Record front derailleur offers light weight, classic design, smoothness and efficiency. The new Super Record 12x2 Speed mechanical front derailleur introduces numerous technical innovations based on the new lever system that accelerates gear changes. Less effort is needed to shift owing to the split front connecting rod, which prevents contact with the travel limit screw. Whilst the shape of the inner cage plate is engineered to guarantee maximum readiness for upshifting, the external monolith body in carbon fibre has been shaped to enhance the efficiency of the chain movement when going uphill and the readiness and fluidity in descent. The aesthetic impact of the component is consistent with the rest of the Super Record groupset due to the use of unidirectional carbon fibre and titanium stop screws. Micro-adjustments to the front derailleur position, which can be activated by the controls, help to prevent any contact with the chain, even in the case of maximum crossover. As regards compatibility, the new Super Record 12x2 Speed front derailleur allows the use of hoods measuring up to 32 mm thanks to the new upper connector rod and the double fixing position of the control cable.
The derailleur features forged aluminum construction, unidirectional carbon fiber and titanium screws for highly efficient shifting and visual accents consistent with the other parts of the groupset.
The upper connecting rod is not connected to the outer connecting rod, allowing effective and precise movement without the driver feeling contact with the end stop.
The fork improves the properties at maximum chain crossing
The front derailleur avoids contact and friction with the drive system.
Ideal for wider tyres
Tyres up to 32 mm wide can be fitted without the risk of contact with the front derailleur.
The front derailleur allows the chain to glide precisely onto the largest chain wheel.
Cable fixing in double position
Highest frame compatibility.
Optimum position for each sprocket
No risk of contact with the chain
