The precise, extremely fluid movement of the Campagnolo Chorus 2x12-speed front derailleur is achieved in part thanks to its design and construction.
The Chorus derailleur incorporates the same design that separates the upper from the lower semi-rod, eliminating the free stroke for more immediate, responsive upshifting. Design of the 2x12 speed front derailleur and its trajectory angle mean wide tires measuring up to 32 mm can be used, while the design of the cage and dedicated positions for each gear position ensure extremely precise and fluid derailleur performance.
Upper semi-rod not connected to the lower one for more effective precise movement and no contact with travel limit
Cage designed to improve maximum cross-chaining situations - reduces transmission contact and friction
Ideal for wider tires - 32 mm section tires can be mounted without the risk of contact with the derailleur
Optimised inner cage design - it precisely accompanies the chain onto the large chainring
Double-position fixing of the cable for maximum compatibility with frames and tires
Optimised position for every engaged sprocket - no risk of contact with the chain
For performance, longevity and functionality the Chorus drivetrain must be used with the mechanical Campagnolo 12-speed drivetrain components.
