The Ergopower gear levers offer the same exceptional ergonomics found on professional bikes, guaranteeing a secure grip in all conditions and absolute comfort even on the longest journeys.
The 1 lever-1 action shift levers and internal PowerShift mechanism ensure precise and direct shifting even under load. The PowerShift system allows the installation of an EPS-style lever, guaranteeing greater ergonomics while allowing the cyclist to maintain perfect control of the drive system regardless of the situation. The precise front derailleurs come both from the carefully designed Ergopower shift levers and from the Centaur front derailleur, which takes over the design and mechanical operation of the Revolution 11+ front derailleur, originally designed for the professional market.
The name Centaur comes from Greek mythology, where it is said that in cultures where the horse wasn’t domesticated, the wandering nomads who rode on it instead were regarded as beings half human, half animal. Although the Campagnolo version may be somewhat less mythical, it attempts to unite man and machine and allow both to move as a single, indivisible, functional and beautiful ensemble. Available in black and silver, the new elegant Campagnolo group guarantees an efficient solution that perfectly matches the aesthetics of any frame, regardless of finish or material. In order to carry the Campagnolo brand, a group must undergo extremely rigorous controls and demonstrate that it guarantees performance far beyond the standards required by most. This last mechanical Campagnolo group is no different. It proudly perpetuates the tradition of improving the cycling experience born more than 80 years ago in Vicenza.
The grip body reproduces the asymmetry of the human hand, increasing the area of contact with the palm of the hand and providing different support positions for maximum safety in all riding positions. Due to their shape, the levers are always easy to reach without effort, regardless of your riding position and the size of your hand. A study on the position of the hands of road cyclists has highlighted 3 different riding positions depending on the track and riding style. Based on these studies, Campagnolo created the special and exclusive shape of the Ergopower brake levers to ensure safe and comfortable riding at all times. In addition, a special insert for large hands increases the distance between the shift levers and the handlebars by 8%, creating sufficient space for braking and shifting while maintaining maximum safety conditions. The Vary-Cushion system encloses the handle body and serves as a damper. The special geometry of this anti-allergenic hand protection rubber with different density absorbs the vibrations so that you can sit in the saddle for many hours without tiring or overstraining your hands. The Ultra-Shift shape of the levers allows a more powerful operation of the brake levers. Even with your hands on the Ergopower levers, strong and responsive braking is possible. Thanks to this advantage, professionals can talk in peace before they get serious.
The introduction of the Power Shift system makes it easier for Ergopower gears to control the front derailleur/gear. Thanks to the optimised design of the new 12/27 and 12/30 sprockets, shifting is just as smooth as with the larger 11-speed brothers. The Power Shift System mechanism shifts the chain down one sprocket and up three sprockets.
