Derailleur systems by Siegmund Werner, Vienna 8.22.2014

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.
