The use of unidirectional and multidirectional carbon fiber in the Ultra-Hollow™ structure gives the Campagnolo Record 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 and is the perfect match for the EPS electric shifting.
The Campagnolo Record 11 Ergopower™ Ultra-Shift™ 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 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.
By optimizing the geometry and repositioning the pull of the cable, the Campagnolo Record 11 front derailleur now delivers faster and more precise shifting. The stiff derailleur cage is made from a combination of aluminum and carbon fiber to provide longevity and light weight.
The Campagnolo Record 11 speed rear derailleur has a forged aluminum lower cage with an enveloping and oversized carbon fiber outer plate. The parallelogram shape delivers 150% more torsional rigidity than the old design. Special lightened rubber pulleys rotate on ceramic bearings to ensure lower friction and longer life. Anodized aluminum fixing screw further reduces weight.
Minimum Sprocket: 11 tooth Maximum Sprocket: 29 tooth
The geometry used in the Campagnolo Record 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.
The last pair of three sprockets are mounted on a frame with a new structure that increases their rigidity. The steel sprockets have a Nickel-Chrome surface treatment.
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.
Campagnolo has lightened the weight of the hollow pins for the Record 11 chain, further reducing this super light, extremely strong chain. A proprietary Ni-PTFE anti-friction treatment makes each pedal stroke smooth and silent while lengthening the life of the chain. The Ultra-Link fastening system guarantees strength and seamless operation with the 11-speed sprockets.
