Road rear derailleurs


The rear derailleur is an important part of the drive system of a road bike. It is responsible for the movement of the chain between the different gears on the rear cassette, which allows cyclists to adapt the gear ratios to the terrain and riding conditions. When choosing a chain derailleur, it is advisable to consider the following factors:

  • Short strap vs. long strap: Rear derailleurs are made with different strap lengths. Short-arm derailleurs are typically used in racing and flat terrain where a wide range of gears is not required. Long-arm derailleurs, on the other hand, allow for a wider gear range and are often used in hilly or mountainous terrain.
  • Compatibility: Make sure the rear derailleur is compatible with other drivetrain components, including the derailleur and cassette.
  • Technology: Some derailleurs are equipped with advanced features and technologies such as electronic shifting (eg Shimano Di2 or SRAM eTap). Electronic shift systems offer precise and reliable shifting at the push of a button

Popular road bike derailleur manufacturers include Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo. When upgrading or replacing components, it is recommended to stick to the same brand and series to ensure compatibility within the drive system.
