Weight: 2.8 oz (81 g); Unique inner cage setting; Aluminum outer cage; CSD (chain secure device); Clamp band; 2 types of cable fixing methods for various cable positions and tire clearance; Split connect rod for smooth shifting; Spring added to support shift up directions for a lighter touch. Cable clamp bolts can be installed in front or back of the arm to prevent the arm from coming into contact with wide tires. Release / Model Year: 2020. The Campy Tech Lab designers focused on functionality, performance and compatibility when redesigning the new front derailleur. The new RecordT mechanical 12x2 Speed derailleur reveals various technical innovations; starting with the leverage system, which is designed to speed up shifting.Less effort is required for shifting thanks to the split front link rod, which avoids contact with the travel limit screw, and the shape of the inner cage plate, designed to match the new 12 speed chain's characteristics. The micro-adjustments to the front derailleur position (which can be activated by the controls) make it possible to avoid any chain contact, even in cases of maximum crossing.
The plate positioned on the aluminium outer cage prevents the chain from escaping when upshifting and increases speed in the downshift phase, as well as creating a quieter transmission. As far as compatibility is concerned, the new RecordT 12x2 Speed front derailleur allows tyres up to 32mm thanks to the new upper connecting rod and the double fixing of the cablex.
