Leading the way for 8, 9, 10, and 11 speeds and, more recently, 12 speeds, Campagnolo has always been a pioneer in innovation for racing bike transmission. The recently introduced Super Record and Record mechanical drivetrains marked not only a new era in the technology of the mechanical groupset, but also made the way for what was to become the electronic version of the Super Record 12-speed groupset. EPS technology was tested on the field by cyclists and before its launch on the market, it was subjected to the usual testing by the Campy Tech Lab in the most demanding lab in the world: the World Tour.
Thanks to the critical feedback and subsequent approval from the Movistar, Lotto Soudal, UAE and Cofidis riders, Campagnolo released the new performance benchmark in electronic drivetrains. This very popular groupset, winner of the Giro d’Italia, the Vuelta, the World Championships and many other races on the World Tour circuit, is now available in a 12-speed option with its V4 version in Power Unit electronic components and interface. The groupset has been redesigned to adapt perfectly to the new 12-speed technological frontier and to the 11-29 and 11-32 cassette combinations introduced in the mechanical version. Fast shifting, always precise and effortless for the cyclist, and a very gradual gear ratio are just some of the extraordinary characteristics of the new EPS groupset, available both with Dual Pivot Super Record and with Campagnolo Direct Mount brakes. Available new options now also include an internal version in addition to the usual externally mounted interface, guaranteeing maximum integration on handlebars and frames designed for this application.
This shift kit listing includes:
- Super Record EPS 12-speed ErgoPower Controls (for rim brakes)
- Super Record EPS 12-speed Rear Derailleur
- Super Record EPS 12-speed Front Derailleur (braze-on)
The shape and functionality of the new Ergopower EPS 12-speed stem from meticulous studies carried out to guarantee the most efficient and effective ergonomics possible.
The shape of the updated brake lever with its new 12-speed design is the result of painstaking studies into hand ergonomics carried out in the Campy Tech Lab to ensure that, together with positioning of the downshift lever, the cyclist has an intuitive, practical, comfortable "control center". The new Ergopower control can be adjusted to fit hands of different sizes. Multi-Shifting technology, with a single action of the lever, is now applied to the entire 12-speed cassette. You can personalize your new Super Record EPS with the MyCampy app to shift continuously up or down by a maximum of 11 sprockets with a simple click. Again developed thanks to close collaboration between Campy Tech Lab and pro cyclists sponsored by Campagnolo, Multi-Dome technology has achieved the perfect balance between force used and tactile feedback, allowing cyclists to feel when a gear shifts. The Ergopower controls also offer the cyclist total control over how the transmission works thanks to the MODE button (found immediately behind the downshift lever on both right and left-hand controls). The MODE button lets the cyclist check battery charge, make accurate adjustments to gears or derailleur (even while pedaling) and carry out any kind of diagnostic check.
In-depth study by the Campagnolo technical staff for development of the new shape of the cage on the 12-speed mechanical front derailleur is now also applied to the new electronic version, guaranteeing fluid, efficient, reliable shifting. Thanks to the inner semi-cage in aluminum and the single-piece outer semi-cage in carbon fiber, the Super Record EPS front derailleur delivers maximum stiffness and efficiency when shifting.
Its cutting-edge mechanical structure teams with the sophisticated intelligence of the interface and the Power Unit and the precision of the derailleur motor allows the chain to move immediately and fluidly on the chainrings, even under maximum load.
In the same way as the front derailleur, the rear one also exploits many developments achieved for its mechanical 12-gear predecessor. The same 45° trajectory angle corresponds to a new change of position that electronically improves chain engagement specific for each sprocket. Better power transmission and less wear and tear of consumer transmission components are just two of the advantages of the positioning of this new rear derailleur with respect to the cassette. Compatible with the two 11-29 and 11-32 cassettes, the two pulley wheels have 12-tooth design and the 72.5 mm derailleur cage ensures perfect performance. The slimmer, sturdier structure of the resistant derailleur cage gives more space between the derailleur and the spokes, making it easier to adjust. Moving the chain onto 12 sprockets in the cassette calls for greater precision, given the increased number of chainrings in the same space. The firmware not only manages this task efficiently and quickly, but the front and rear actuators do their job using the most powerful motors available on the market. Built with materials such as aluminum, ultra-lite technopolymer and long-fiber carbon, the EPS rear derailleur has been built to meet Campagnolo standards in terms of extreme durability, precision and reliability, despite weighing only 234 g.
