AD-II Engineering Launching Arsis White

New for Modelyear 2010 at AD-II Engineering from Taichung, Taiwan, producers of Microshift transmission components, are Dual Control levers and front derailleur clamps with a white finish. As the colour white is becoming more and more popular in Europe, AD-II Engineering offers more components anodized in white.

The Taiwanese component maker launched its Arsis roadrace groupset at the 2007 Eurobike Show. Along with front and rear derailleurs this groupset also contains a pair of Dual Control levers.

A special feature of these levers (and also to avoid Shimano, Campa and SRAM patents) is that they have separate shifters. AD-II Engineering claims that the separate tappers to shift up or down shifting avoids confusion; avoids unintended braking when shifting and makes control easier.

Further with the Arsis roadrace groupset comes a front derailleur with a 16T capacity for double chainring; top gear 50 – 56T and narrow chain cage for 10 speed. The rear derailleur is of course also suited for 10 speed. The rear derailleur has sealed bearings for smoother rolling. New for modelyear 2010 bikes are Arsis derailleurs in carbon while the company also offers new bar-end shifters for Triathlon bikes as well as Dual Control levers targeted to Ladies bikes.
