The additional speed led us to devising a new support structure for the last six sprockets in two subsets. The form of the teeth is new and they have been treated to increase duration over time.

Eleven sprockets that are even more efficient despite the reduction of the thicknesses? We have succeeded. The teeth have been designed to optimize the speed and fluidity of shifting. This form reduces stress on the chain which ascends more easily onto the higher diameter sprockets. The large pinions are divided into sets of three and are mounted on a new aluminium frame. Thanks to this, rigidity increases 180% and the individual sprockets are 70% more resistant to torsion.
Chains

The new 5.5 millimetre thickness of the Campagnolo Chorus 11 Chain has been combined with new materials and a special anti-friction treatment which permits outstanding fluidity. Campagnolo has reduced the width of the chain to 5.5 millimetres with the new spacing and a new material has been envisaged for the outer links. The pins are hollow inside to reduce the weight while maintaining strength. The Ni-PTFE treatment ensures smoothness and long life. The Ultra-Link fastening system guarantees strength and operation with the new 11-speed sprockets.

Weight: 256 g. (114 link)

By optimizing the geometry and repositioning the pull of the cable, the Campagnolo Chorus 11 front derailleur now delivers faster and more precise shifting. An anti-friction treatment extends the total lifetime.

The Campagnolo Chorus 11 rear derailleur has a forged aluminum lower body with an enveloping and oversized carbon fiber outer plate on the upper body. The parallelogram shape delivers 150% more torsional rigidity than the old design. Anodized aluminum fixing screw further reduces weight. A "full black" finish on the lower cage matches the carbon of the upper body.

Minimum Sprocket: 11 tooth
Maximum Sprocket: 29 tooth

The Campagnolo Chorus 11 Ultra-Shift™ Ergopower™ shifters have been reworked to permit a better grip for the rider's hand and exact shifting precision. The updated material of the grip body is a reinforced Polyamide that has double the impact resistance of its predecessor. The right-hand lever allows you to shift the chain up to three speeds upwards and up to five downwards. The advantage is excellent shifting speed in every situation. Operating fluidity has also been improved thanks to a favorable lever ratio, so the force required for actuating the front and rear derailleurs is considerably lower.
Brakes

Weight: 299 g. (Front & Rear)

The geometry used in the Campagnolo Chorus 11 brake calipers has made it possible to reduce weight without diminishing braking power. The geometry is differentiated between the front (single pivot) and rear (dual pivot) calipers, ensuring maximum braking power and great modulation.

Record 11 external cups sold separately.

The use of unidirectional and multidirectional carbon fiber in the Ultra-Hollow™ structure gives the Campagnolo Chorus 11 crankset rigidity and lightness. Campagnolo's EXtreme Performance Shifting System (XPSS) was specially developed to improve shift timing, and features a redesigned tooth profile to optimize their 11-speed operation. Thanks to the new chainring design, there are now eight sectors specialized for upshifting, and two diametrically opposed sectors for downshifting. This makes instantaneous and precise shifting possible both up and down.
