Thinking about using groupset but wanna look different, without the famous duo Shimano and SRAM components on the bike? The time finally comes, after Box Components releases the Box One groupset on the market. Box rear derailleur has been used by Polygon UR Team and it just few times before the fans also use it on their bikes.
Okay, it's different than Shimano and SRAM, but is that only different? Surely, the design is very different than those two huge drivetrain companies, and it's good to make the bike looks different. But, Box One drivetrain is using single lever shifting rather than two way shifting. The company calls this as Push-Push technology. It has also spring-loaded PivotTech cable to improve stability and durability and also CamCluth to reduce the noise.
