SunTour AccuShift
Announcement: RIP Jeff Archer - owner of First Flight Bicycles, curator of MOMBAT. A true loss to the entire cycling community. Posted: 07/21/16 05:21 PM CST
Short Name:SunTour AccuShiftYear Introduced:1988
Speed Range:6sp - 8 spIndexed Component:Shifter
General Information
SunTour Accushift is different than the Shimano SIS system in that it has a built in over shift in the shifter which moves the chain 1mm beyond the centerline of the cog to complete the shift, and then moves the guide pulley back to center the chain after the shift is completed.  SunTour's rear derailleur also has little to no play in the guide pulley which forces the chain to be positioned directly under each freewheel cog, but this makes for less tolerance for being out of adjustment.

    Notes: It is best to pair SunTour Accushift derailleurs to their similar named Shifters to ensure best results.
Component List
Generally in Indexed systems, either the shifting or the derailleur component contains the indexing logic. Here is a list of components currently on which utilize the SunTour AccuShift shifting mechanism.
