Acolyte Rear Derailleur for 1×8

Not everyone needs the added chain retention provided by our innovative SpringLock system. For those riders, we offer a non-clutch version of our Acolyte derailleur. While still capable of handling a 12-46T cassette, the rear derailleur is the perfect choice for commuter or touring bikes that can benefit from using a wide range 1x gearing system.

  • Direct path cable routing for smooth and responsive shifting
  • Compatible with 12-42T and 12-46T 9-speed cassettes
  • Compatible with Acolyte shifters only
