||Campagnolo Super Record 12 Speed Groupset - 52/36 11/32 | Black - 172.5mm
The Super Record groupset is the best Campagnolo mechanical transmission. It is the choice that even top professionals rely upon for improved performance, reliability and precision. The Super Record groupset is also extremely lightweight yet very durable. This new 12 speed incarnation is the very pinnacle of Campagnolo® innovation and the technologies, materials and craftsmanship with which the groupset is built, put it in a category of its own Super Group. ErgopowersCampagnolo shifters have always been a one of the most innovative parts of the group set due to their near-perfect ergonomics. Campagnolo have refined the 12x models even further, slightly angling the brake lever blades to allow for greater braking control over rougher surfaces. The curve in the blade is more pronounced, offering greater comfort and aerodynamics. The groups are made even more accessible thanks to three levels of adjustment where the lever can be set for riders with a different reach. Inner and Outer Cables Campagnolo have manufactured completely new inner and outer cables. The new versions drastically reduce friction and ensure a much longer life. Braking and shifting is impressive thanks to the new technology. Braking and shifting is impressive thanks to the new technology. Smoothness is maintained even when internally routed through the handlebars. Front DerailleurThe front derailleur gives quicker and more immediate upshifting thanks to its new design and trajectory angle. The front derailleur also uses a dual position cable grip bolt to allow for use of tyres up to 32mm following current market trends. Rear DerailleurDramatically different and elegant design for the rear derailleur produced in an ultra-light techno polymer with reinforced long strand UD carbon fiber. 3D Embrace technology is huge step forward from current derailleurs function. When you see how the derailleur shifts, you’ll notice that the jockey wheels are incredibly close to every single sprocket giving smooth, instant shifts and maximum efficiency. Cassette With the additional sprocket on the cassette the need for a range of cassettes is eliminated. The extra gear allows for single tooth increments all the way up to the 7th sprocket. The shift curve on these new cassettes is so much smoother than competitor 11 speed brands. The cassette is an identical width to the 11-speed versions so they are compatible with all existing Campagnolo freehub bodies. When researching other 12-speed equivalents on the market, they found an incredible amount of flex due to the single ring set up of the cassette. Chainset The chainset’s in both groups are a smoother, more aerodynamic design than the previous version with incredible aesthetics. The carbon spider on the Super Record version stretches all the way out to the chain ring close to the teeth, creating a cleaner more aesthetically pleasing and more aerodynamic design. The hollow carbon construction offers a low weight without sacrificing stiffness or reliability. Chain The chain is one of the most complicated components when redesigning a groupset simply due to the narrow width and strength required. Campagnolo’s new chain is thinner, lighter, engages quicker and offers the exact same durability as an 11-speed chain. Brakes The Super Record brakes have been completely upgraded. Campagnolo have created a powerful new option which is designed to work with up to28mm tyres and are far more aerodynamic. The lever movement and bearings are completely new, this aid in modulation and increases smoothness. Braking power has notably increased.
