Canadian Cycling Magazine - - WHAT’S HOT -

In the midst of the Cob­bled Clas­sics, Shi­mano re­leased it new rear de­railleur, the Ul­te­gra RX. The “RX” is for “road cross­over.” In this case, it’s a fa­mil­iar mi­gra­tion of late: moun­tain bike tech head­ing to the road. Shi­mano brought its Shadow RD Plus tech­nol­ogy to this de­railleur, which re­duces chain slap and dropped chains. A switch en­gages a sta­bi­lizer in­creas­ing spring force in the mech, so your rides down gravel roads should have smooth, con­sis­tent shift­ing.
