Acolyte SpringLock Rear Derailleur for 1×8 Speed

The heart of the Acolyte derailleur is Microshift's innovative SpringLock system. By pairing a customised linear rate high tension spring and a dual-stage activation mechanism, they've developed a system that can provide substantial chain security when you need it and can be turned off when you don't. To engage the clutch, turn the engagement bolt clockwise until it clicks. There's no way to overtighten the bolt. To disengage the clutch for wheel removal, flip the switch. It's that simple.
