Making front derailleurs that work well is equal parts art and science. We combine meticulous design details with precision manufacturing to deliver front derailleurs that shift predictably and smoothly. Stiff, strong mounting hardware, and sensible cable routing round everything out into an easy-to-use package.

You don’t read a lot about 8-speed road bikes in the magazines, but this level of components make up a big part of the global market share and rack up an absurd number of miles every year. Maybe you’re putting together a commuter bike, a training bike for bad weather, or you just want the simplicity of an 8-speed system. Either way, R8 is a smart choice for the full road bike experience without the pretense.
