Top Features of the Campagnolo Chorus 11 Speed Cassette 12T Upwards
- New teeth profile for the 11 speed system
- Reinforced aluminium supports for the six largest sprockets
- Light alloy fastening ring
- Nickel-Chrome surface treatment
Painstaking work was carried out on the sprockets.
The additional speed led Campagnolo to devising a new support structure for the last six sprockets in the two subsets. The form of the teeth is new and they have been treated to increase duration over time.
Eleven sprockets that are even more efficient despite the reduction of the thicknesses?
Campagnolo have succeeded.
The teeth have been designed to optimize the speed and fluidity of shifting. This form reduces stress on the chain which ascends more easily onto the higher diameter sprockets. The large pinions are divided into sets of three and are mounted on a new aluminium frame. Thanks to this, rigidity increases 180% and the individual sprockets are 70% more resistant to torsion.
About Cassettes & Freewheels
Cassettes and freewheels for bikes are a cluster of sprockets in a range of sizes offering a multitude of gear ratios. The difference between the two is, a cassette slots onto the freehub, which has the ratchet built in and is then secured with a lockring, whereas a freewheel is a cluster of sprockets built around a ratchet and threads directly on to the hub. Cassettes and freewheels come in many ratios, close ratio is when the number of teeth increase in small increments of 1 or 2 at a time, whereas a wide ratio is when the teeth increase in larger increments of 3 or 4 at a time. Most systems will use a cassette hub as these allow for a wider bearing spacing and increased axle life, you can also fit a larger quantity of sprockets onto a cassette hub with 11 speed systems now becoming available. With cassettes you must use the appropriate spacing for your gear levers and rear mech, Shimano and Campagnolo are not interchangeable so you will need to match the cassette to your levers for smooth and precise shifting. Sram and Shimano chains and cassettes will work together as they use the same spacing.

Magazine reviews for Campagnolo Chorus 11 Speed Cassette 12T Upwards
Review from Cycling Plus
The Chorus cassette has exactly the same teeth proﬁles and spacing found in Campag's higher-end Record and Super Record groupsets.
All of the sprockets are coated steel (nickel-chrome), and they should prove to be extremely durable, so unless an all-out low weight is crucial, this is a very sensible option.
Shifting is as conﬁdence-inspiring as you'd expect from Campag, and with deeper teeth than Shimano, it's reassuringly solid - though not as silky smooth as Ultegra.
Accurate shifting and should prove to be long lasting

To replace the cassette you will need a campy lock ring tool, spanner, and chain whip. There are plenty of step by step available online to walk you through it, or in the campy tech manuals that come with the cassette, and available online.
here are the tools required:
- lock ring tool
- chain whip
- chain splitter
these will cost you about £30 and video instructions are online. it's quite an easy job.
you may feel it's not worth forking out on tools but most bike shops will charge you for fitting if you haven't bought cassette from them, so this will save you money in the long term.
You will need a campag fitting cassette removal tool - this fits in the locking ring and can be picked up cheaply enough. Ideally you will also need a chain whip / removal tool to grip the cassette when you remove it - otherwise you run the risk of damaging the teeth (and losing the skin off your knuckles!).
the tools you would need are the LifeLine Cassette Tool and Chain Whip.
Campy don't do a 28t, but you have cassettes 12-27 and 12-29, which are suitable or steep climbing. Which is better for you I can't say.
but why change? ultegra cassettes are just as reliable, half the price and offer a better set of ratios.
can i get away with the same chain (only 70 miles old)
upfront is 50/34T.
If so Could i use 11-25 on my old wheel set ( for flat days)
then put 12 - 29 back on for hill days. !!
you can test this by putting the chain on the largest chain ring and the largest rear cog and seeing if the rear mech. will allow you to take up the 4 additional links required (25 to 29)
you'll get dirty hands but it's better than forking out unnecessarily.
however, record is less durable. just eat one less smartie!
