SunRace R80 (R82)

SunRace R80 (R82) derailleur main image

The SunRace R80 (R82) represented a step up in SunRace's capabilities and ambitions. The level of precision and finish was decidedly mid-range Shimano, rather than low-end Shimano. It was the first of a cascade of gradually improving, fully aluminium, models that heroically strove to challenge Ultegra.

Not that, on the R80 (R82), SunRace included their distinctive, and pleasantly eccentric, b-pivot adjustment system.
