Hi there guys, for the last few days im having a headache. Years ago on this forum I saw a magazine scan of some weird shimano groupset. The groupset had a futuristic-space look. I believe it was 105 but my mind might be playing games. Never seen that groupset in flesh or anywhere else and didnt saved that picture either.
Anyone has any idea what im talking about?

I wonder if you are thinking of Shimano Sante which was made for 1 or 2 years and fitted between Dura-ace and 600

Was it something like the Shimano AX aero range, the Adamas was the lower end then 600AX and then Dura Ace AX

I thought someone will suggest Sante, as per my poor description, and its close. But it looked even more plasticy and weird.
