microSHIFT Acolyte Rear Derailleur - 8 Speed, Medium Cage, With SpringLock Chain Retention
|Availability:||In stock (9)|
The Acolyte group delivers the wide range and simplicity of a top-of-the-line shifting system, all at a price point that would make sense on your first bike.
The heart of the Acolyte derailleur is our innovative SpringLock system. By pairing a customized linear rate high tension spring and a dual stage activation mechanism, we’ve developed a system that can provide substantial chain security when you need it and can be turned off when you don’t. To engage the clutch, turn the engagement bolt clockwise until it clicks. There’s no way to overtighten the bolt. To disengage the clutch for wheel removal, flip the switch. It’s that simple.
