Campagnolo S.r.l. products are created using the most innovative technologies and production processes, with prime-quality materials from the aerospace industry: carbon fibre, titanium and aluminium alloys. And it is precisely in the carbon-fibre sector that Campagnolo, after dominating the aluminium world for decades, has now decided to make a name for itself with applications that were previously deemed unthinkable for the cycling market. It therefore comes as no surprise that the Composites Department, launched in 1998, currently employs one third of Campagnolo's employees. Products in carbon fibre are constantly being created as a glance at the 2012 collection reveals: cranksets, front and rear derailleurs, integrated controls, headsets, seatposts and bottle cages.
Besides distinguishing themselves at the top in terms of innovation, quality and performance, Campagnolo products have also become the benchmark for design. This is testified by the prestigious Compasso d'Oro award from the Associazione Design Italiano in recognition of the Veloce groupset and Ergopower integrated controls.
New for 2013
Although made predominantly from aluminium, Athena still includes a number of carbon fibre components, making it the lightest electronic drivetrain in its class, while its ergonomics and derailing and shift performance are exactly the same as Campagnolo's range-topping drivetrains.
A dream within reach of all Campagnolo enthusiasts.
TT and Triple components
From grand tour stage races to the demanding Triathlon World Championships,
races can be won or lost by a split second. In these competitions, where even the
smallest loss of speed costs precious seconds, the weight and aerodynamics of the
components used are crucial.
With these important details in mind, engineers at the Campy Tech Lab have
designed and created components dedicated to time trial style competitions. They
have implemented innovative solutions, specifically in performance along with
optimised aerodynamics and weight reduction.
Thanks to the introduction of these new components dedicated to the world of
speed, it is now possible to equip your time trial bike with complete 11 or 10-speed
