Refined performance and no need to trim take it to a higher level

Dura-Ace 7900 - front mech

The design of the link has been improved so you get a slightly lighter action in both directions. But the most noticeable difference here is that you no longer get a trim option – the small movement to adjust the plate position without moving from the big to the small chainring. The wider link means you don’t need it, which makes life just a little easier. You can even – if you’re some kind of crazy anarchist – run the chain from big chainring to big sprocket and there’s no rubbing on the front mech.
