The twelfth sprocket heralds a new era for mechanical groupsets, allowing cyclists to achieve levels of versatility that have never been reached before, matched with Campagnolo’s typical quality and reliability. The design of the new Record 12x2 Speed groupset originated from a blank canvas, redesigning all components to improve their performance, while maintaining the same overall dimensions to retain full compatibility with the frames and wheels on the market. The 12-speed chain, with a thinner design than the previous one, has a life span equal to or longer than the 11-speed model. The crankset has been completely redesigned, with the aim of being effective even with wider chain crossings; the rear derailleur has a rocker arm capable of supporting sprockets of up to 32 teeth. The front derailleur has been lightened to reduce overall dimensions, while maintaining its effectiveness on different frames and types of bicycles.
The hydraulic disc brake system is a further addition to all this, offering power and braking modulability without sacrificing ease of wheel maintenance and shifting, thanks to the introduction of a few technical measures.
The disc brake calipers are compatible with rotors 160 mm on the front and 140 mm to 160m diameter for the rear, mounting hardware for use with 160 mm rear rotors not included.
