General Information
From Christoph Ulbrich: The SUWE-Cortina was the third derailleur model of the Viennese Siegmund Werner and introduced in 1953. The essential difference to its forerunner, the SUWE Kandahar is the parallellogram principle. Primarily Werner used to produce bicycles and bindings for skis. Source: Wiener Mechanikerräder 1930-1980. Zappe, Schmidl, Strubreiter und Schuster. Purkersdorf 2013
