The fantastic ergonomics that over the years have become a sort of calling card for Campagnolo have been even further improved with the latest introduction of Super Record and Record 12-speed drivetrains.
Not just ergonomic but also customisable, this standard is embodied in the design of the Chorus levers. Apart from the brake lever, made from aluminium but with a coating that enhances its finish and its feel, Chorus Ergopower are almost identical to those on the Super Record and Record controls. Ergonomic characteristics, such as the design of the brake lever hoods, the design of the brake levers and bigger gear levers, team with characteristics that make the shape of Ergopower controls unique for cyclists’ needs. The various positions possible for Ergopower controls mean they adapt better to different hand sizes. Campagnolo’s tried and tested one-lever-one-action philosophy ensures no-confusion control, regardless of the cycling conditions or the cyclist’s position. The Ultra-Shift mechanism controls the 12-speed rear derailleur, letting the rider shift up by up to 3 sprockets and down by up to 5 sprockets in a single movement.
Ultra-Shift Ergonomics - Shaped cushioning and an adjustable reach ensure a firm grip on the handlebars and fast, precise control of the levers regardless of hand or finger size. The special ergonomic design makes it possible to assume three different hand positions on the levers compared to the two traditional ones.
Vari-Cushion - brake lever hoods with variable density and surface finishes. Natural silicone material with differentiated areas to follow the grip of the 1st and 2nd finger. The grooved areas drain away water, keeping the brake lever hoods dry and improving grip. Internal weave to create a variable thickness that guarantees maximum possible comfort.
Ultra-Shift Mechanism - This technology allows multiple shifting, letting the rider shift up by up to 3 sprockets and down by up to 5 sprockets in a single movement. Rapid positioning on the combination desired when there is a steep increase in the slope or when approaching a corner (up to 4 combinations with chain on the frst 4 sprockets, up to 3 combinations with chain above the fourth sprocket).
For performance, longevity and functionality the Chorus drivetrain must be used with the mechanical Campagnolo 12-speed drivetrain components.
