No Chain, No Mechs, No Problem: The New Ceramicspeed Driven

Joe Robinson 10 Jul 2018 A groupset that uses no chain and no mechs but a driveshaft instead: is this the future? So far at Eurobike, one product has been spoken about more than anything else: the innovative CeramicSpeed DrivEn concept groupset. Developed in conjunction with the University of Colorado, the system uses a carbon fibre drive shaft in place of the usual chain, doing away with the need for a rear derailleur in the process. Ceramic Speed claims the system is more efficient than even the best performing derailleur-based drivetrains on the market. It also points out that it is longer-lasting because it eliminates the wear associated with a chain and both a front and rear mech.
