Designed by our French Engineers, this Nova Ride oversized carbon cage for rear derailleur improves your drivetrain transmission, can be mounted easily on your group and add a touch of color to your bike.
Made in very high-end materials: Ultra-light carbon fiber, 7075 Alloy and full ceramic sealed bearings are designed to last over time.
With alloy pulley wheels, no wear and tear compared to standard plastic pulley wheels. Our sealed bearings protected with alloy covers enable a longer lifespan. We designed these parts in a way that you will not have to worry about maintenance or technical issues. There is no risk of oxidation with our fully ceramic sealed bearings.
This version has a thicker carbon cage than our Shimano road versions in order to be more solid in the event of possible shocks.
In this Shimano GRX version, the oversize cages are only compatible with Shimano GRX 810-815 (2x11 speed) or GRX 812-817 (1x11 speed) rear derailleurs.
The Nova carbon ceramic GRX 810-815 derailleur version is compatible with the Shimano Ultegra RD-RX 800-805(Di2) derailleur
We recommend a cassette of 34 teeth maximum for an optimal gear change for the GRX 810-815 version and a cassette of 42 teeth maximum for the GRX 812-817 version.
