Improvements

  • Upgrade the Shifter to Magnetic Shifters
  • Improved and simplified quick release (tool-free)
  • Stiffening of the clutch pedals
  • OLED display now in white
  • 12-positions rotary switch (known from Formula V2)
  • improved electronics with components from the Formula V2

The biggest difference is the upgrade of the shifters, which fixes the biggest vulnerability of the first version. This was without a doubt the switching feeling, which is raised to a new level by the use of magnets. The use of the new simplified Quickrelease is also a significant plus compared to the old CSL quickrelease, for which tools had to be used.
