|Campagnolo's flagship 11 speed Ergopower controls for the most discerning riders. Superior materials and technology come together for the ultimate status and performance. Composite body, ball bearings, titanium internal mechanism pieces, micro-adjusting front shifting, Vari-Cushion shock absorbing silicone hoods, grooved carbon fiber brake lever and Ultra-Shift geometry all add up to some of the finest controls ever made. High-leverage brake levers are closer to the bar for those with smaller hands, but also have an insert for those with big ol' meat hooks. Improved No-Bulge cable housing path makes for more comfortable hand positions. Designed to work with caliper brakes only and features an integrated release pin in the lever. A full cable/casing set is provided, cable housing stops/adjusters are not. We stock Campagnolo's alloy stops (#0590) separately if you need them. Recommended only for use with Campagnolo 11 speed systems.
LickNotes: The reworked Ergopower Ultra-Shift controls permit a better grip for the rider's hand and absolute operating precision. The right lever allows gear changes up to three speeds upwards and up to five downwards (one at a time is still much safer and more accurate) providing excellent shifting speed in every situation. Operating fluidity has also been improved. Thanks to an improved lever ratio, the force required for actuating the front and rear derailleurs is lower than previous Ergopower models (13% easier for the rear derailleur and 18% for the front).
