There are plenty of obstacles in the Trail – don’t let your drivetrain be one of them. The Acolyte components deliver 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. With rock solid chain retention, intuitive shifting action, and enough gear range to climb a wall, you’ll be free to focus on what’s important: building your skills.
The Acolyte series helps you concentrate on your ride by removing obstacles and distractions. With simple 1x8-speed operation, a full mountain bike gear range, and robust SpringLock chain retention, there are only two things left to think about: you and the Trail.
The heart of the microSHIFT Acolyte rear derailleur is the innovative SpringLock system. By pairing a customized linear rate high tension spring and a dual stage activation mechanism, microSHIFT 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 is no way to overtighten the bolt. To disengage the clutch for wheel removal, flip the switch. It is that simple.
Important: Not compatible with Shimano or SRAM shifting systems.
