Properties of this derailleur
Fitting for shifting: 2x11-speed Mounting: Direct mount high Construction type: Side-Swing Cable route type: Front Pull
Thanks to the Side-Swing technology the shift performance of the front derailleur can be increased by 100 percent. Designed specifically with modern trail bikes in mind it provides 15mm of increased tyre clearance whilst new cable routing dramatically reduces the shifting effort.
Note: Because of the front position of the coiling cable bushing at the front derailleur, the shifting cable must be installed inside or above the down tube.
