Sachs-Huret Rival ARIS Sport light grey (41.3D)

Sachs-Huret Rival ARIS Sport light grey (41.3D) main image

This Sachs-Huret Rival ARIS is a presentable, solidly constructed and reasonably effective unit. It has its cable clamp bolt mounted on a sprung arm - to give what Shimano called a 'light action'.

In fact, compared to a Shimano Light Action derailleur of the time, the Sachs-Huret Rival ARIS was just slightly later to market, just slightly more expensive, just slightly heavier and indexed with just slightly less accuracy. It's cruel to say so, but it was also just slightly uglier.

It's tough competing against a highly capable, 800 pound, gorilla like Shimano.


This, lightly used, example displays the following features:

  • It has a short (50mm) pulley cage.
  • It has a dark grey finish on its knuckles, light grey outer parallelogram plate and pulley cage plate and black logos including the word 'Sport'.
  • The pulley bolts take a 4mm Allen key.
  • The pulleys are dark grey.
  • Unusually, the cable clamp bolt is a 5mm Allen key item.
  • The cable adjuster is 'cubic' and black.
  • The rear parallelogram pivot pin on the b-knuckle has a plastic sleeve.
