Campagnolo Record Shift Kit (Rim Brake 2x12)
Campagnolo never ceases to evolve and the range of drivetrains has taken on a new sophisticated element: The new 12-speed Record™ mechanical groupset is the iconic brand that has personified the world's greatest successes in cycling, in both professional and amateur races. The victories race bikes have achieved over the years with this groupset demonstrates the highest level of quality present in the processing, technology and premium materials that have always made it stand above the rest as a unique trademark product.
This shift kit listing includes:
- Record 12-speed ErgoPower Controls (for rim brakes)
- Record 12-speed Rear Derailleur
- Record 12-speed Front Derailleur (braze-on)
The new carbon unidirectional levers lend the Record Rim Brake controls an air of power, stiffness and reliability. These new controls allow riders to select two different lever-handlebar positions spaced to adapt to the size of the hand, whilst keeping braking efficiency constant. This is accomplished through the new angle of the up-shifting lever that prevents any possible contact with the curve of the handlebar. The position of the lever is adjusted by acting directly on the controls in a simple and safe manner.
The Vari-Cushion technology offers an ergonomic, comfortable and safe support and grip. The “one lever-one action” feature assigns each lever one function to prevent shifting errors. The Ultra-Shift mechanism enables upshifting up to three sprockets at a time and downshifting a full five. The new Record™ 12x2 Speed Rim Brake levers introduce a double curvature to improve grip and thus safety.
The Campy Tech Lab designers focused on functionality, performance and compatibility when redesigning the new front derailleur. The new Record™ mechanical 12x2 Speed derailleur reveals various technical innovations; starting with the leverage system, which is designed to speed up shifting. Less effort is required for shifting thanks to the split front link rod, which avoids contact with the travel limit screw, and the shape of the inner cage plate, designed to match the new 12 speed chain’s characteristics.
The micro-adjustments to the front derailleur position (which can be activated by the controls) make it possible to avoid any chain contact, even in cases of maximum crossing. The plate positioned on the aluminium outer cage prevents the chain from escaping when upshifting and increases speed in the downshift phase, as well as creating a quieter transmission.
Designed to improve performance and function in every aspect, the new Record™ 12 Speed mechanical rear derailleur has an innovative shape that envelopes the sprockets better thanks to 3D Embrace technology, creating a double effect: allowing the chain to maintain optimum traction at all times, thus increasing the speed, power and precision of shifting; and ensuring that the derailleur is always kept an optimal distance away from the sprockets.
The cage has also been optimized to work with sprockets from 11 to 32 teeth, allowing a single version to be maintained for all available sprocket sets. The upper part of the new Record™ 12 Speed mechanical rear derailleur gearbox is made of carbon fibre-reinforced technopolymer, contributing to its robustness and lightness, while the stop adjustment screws at the back of the rear derailleur make adjustments very simple.
