Electric Dreams: Campagnolo launches Super Record 12x2 EPS

Comments Comments

It was heavily alluded to in 2018 and, sure enough, here it is in 2019. Campagnolo has officially welcomed electronic shifting into its 12-speed family, unveiling the all-new Super Record 12x2 EPS groupset in both rim and disc options.

While its arrival should come as no great surprise – especially given it had already been spotted being used at the Tour Down Under back in January – it marks another significant milestone for the Vicenza-based manufacturer as it continues to evolve its ‘Movement’ inspired innovation platform.

Bicycling Australia’s Peter Maniaty was on the ground at the recent global launch in Girona, Spain to test ride this stunning new all-European groupset, with an equally stunning price tag. You can read his full review in the next issue (plus news of several other additions to the Campagnolo family for 2019). But for now here’s a taste of what you can expect from Super Record 12x2 EPS…

“Ergonomically and aesthetically, there’s a lot of similarity to the mechanical Super Record 12x2 groupo launched in 2018. It was outstanding and, as became abundantly clear as we put it through its paces on the roads in and around Girona, so is 12x2 EPS.” 

“As you’d have every right to expect from a groupset that will set you back upwards of $6500, Super Record 12x2 EPS really is a sublime riding package. It delivers silky smooth control, wonderfully modulated braking and truly effortless shifting.”

“A new DTI internal interface can be assembled either into the handlebar end or via a dedicated interface location on the down tube on specific framesets.”

“Multi-Dome aluminium inserts provide ultra-smooth shifting while still providing tactile rider feedback. It has an almost mechanical shifting feel – and sound – about it. You feel in physical control, rather than at the mercy of computer software.”

“The power unit has been upgraded for 2019 with a new slimline EPS V4 battery. It delivers  a 10% increase in charge capacity which is impressive considering Campagnolo was already the market leader for battery life.”

“One of the greatest pleasures was the Multi-shift technology that allows you to move as many gears as you like, up or down, with a single touch – even the entire cassette if you want.”

“A new 12x2 EPS shifting algorithm electronically mimics Campagnolo’s mechanical 3D Embrace system to provide increased chain wrap that’s specific to every sprocket.”

“The electronic derailleur system is self-centring, ensuring consistently perfect shifting and precise chain alignment at all times.”
