Campagnolo groupset expands with Chorus launch

The 12 speed Campagnolo groupset family is continuing to grow with the launch of a new Chorus groupset this month.

The new group benefits from a lot of the technology born through the Super Record and Record models but at a more affordable price, with stock initially available through IBDs only.

The group’s chainset has been completely re-designed with a new PCD which can accommodate 48/32 as well as 50/34 and 52/36 compact models.

The rear mechanism mirrors the design of Super Record and Record but can accept 11-34t. It also has an increased spring rate to increase shifting speed and accuracy. The dampening upper body spring which was introduced on the higher-tier groupsets is featured on the chorus mechanism, greatly reducing chain slap.

The front mechanism is similar again, featuring the two cable positions which helps with tyre clearance when using higher volume tyres. The groupset’s Ergopowers are redesigned and are the most ergonomic yet, a good option for smaller riders due to the additional lever position and revised body design.

Additionally, caliper and disc brakes are available with the hydraulic brakes featuring a new pad design with a return spring aiding in piston-rollback. The brakes are now pre-filled with oil, so no bleeding required, in a bid to cut down on workshop time.

Stock will be available shortly, to pre-order visit chickenb2b.co.uk or speak to your account manager. For further information, you can phone Stuart Townsend on 01525 381347.
