In making one step closer towards the ultimate goal of mechanical shifting perfection, Campagnolo is proud to present the Super Record RS groupset.
The fruit of their labor came in the form of several prototypes that were tested heavily in the lab but mostly in the field during World Tour competition.
The project was aimed at increasing both performance as well as reliability even in extreme conditions.
While at first sight the groupset appears quite similar to the previous version, several angles and shapes were modified throughout the drivetrain with the most significant changes being concentrated on the chainrings and front dérailleur design.
While the average cyclist might not realize the intricacies of a chainring; how each and every tooth has its own shape, how the internal surface is designed for specific performance and how the two perform in unison for faster and more efficient chain engagement it is actually a very complex piece upon which the overall performance of the transmission is based.
With meticulously redesigned chainrings attention was then dedicated to the front dérailleur in order to have the perfect angles and structural form to ensure perfect compatibility between the two components.
In addition to form developments, structural integrity was improved through new production techniques thus making the front dérailleur more rigid. These large changes were then incorporated into the complete transmission in a manner in which they would all function together in a synchronized fashion.
Campagnolo strongly believes that the same cutting edge technology that is available to their professional athletes should also be available to consumers.
The ultimate testing ground, professional cycling at the highest level, serves as the most extreme laboratory that the company has at its disposal. Products developed under the scrutiny of the world's best athletes in order to give them an added technological edge offer the same performance characteristics to Campagnolo consumers.
While the performance aspect is undoubtedly the most alluring part of the RS version of Super Record, the aesthetics also play their part. Incorporating different elements that each refer to significant aspects of the groupset and its maker, the graphics make this new product not only of interest due to its increased performance characteristics but also for its meaningful look. The ""tricolore"" is representative of the Italian heritage of both Campagnolo and the Italian cycling culture from which it was born. The chrome text and logos recall the mechanical origins of the historic cycling component manufacturer while the chequered flag aesthetic pays homage to its race winning pedigree.
A groupset is a matched set of components from a single manufacturer that are designed to work well together. If you are upgrading your existing bike or specifying a new one, you can usually save money by buying a groupset rather than the individual parts. Pay close attention to whether all the parts will fit your frame - particularly the front derailleur. Most groupsets don't include hubs or pedals but there are many different configurations so read the component list carefully.
Besides distinguishing themselves for their unparalleled quality and performance, Campagnolo products have also become the benchmark of design. This is testified by the prestigious Compasso d'Oro award granted by the Associazione Design Italiano in recognition of the Veloce groupset, Ergopower integrated controls and Shamal high-profile wheels. Campagnolo is not only involved in the cycling world, but dedicates itself to all sports in general. In fact, it was named by the Wall Street Journal as one of the most prominent sports brands in the world. A reputation earned not only as a result of the countless successes achieved in racing competitions, but also by virtue of the attention given to quality and to service that sets this company apart from all others.
