Campagnolo – a history of firsts

Few manufacturers in cycling can claim a heritage as rich as Campagnolo’s. For over 80 years they have been present at the heart of the peloton, powering names like Coppi, Merckx and Quintana to their finest victories. Merely focussing on the past however is to do an injustice to the innovation they continue to drive. To this day, the Campagnolo story is one of firsts, one that we at Canyon take pride in being a part of.

2007

In 2007 Canyon entered the UCI ProTour with Team Unibet. From the beginning, Campagnolo was the team’s groupset of choice.

2009

Cadel Evans became World Champion in 2009 riding a Canyon Ultimate CF while putting Campagnolo’s first 11-speed Super Record groupset to good use.

2011

Phillipe Gilbert’s unstoppable 2011 season was achieved aboard the first-generation Canyon Aeroad CF complete with Super Record components.

2018

Campagnolo’s partnership with Abarca Sports, the organisation behind Movistar Team, is the longest-standing in the entire pro peloton, continuing through 2018 with Canyon.

Campagnolo – 12-SPEED PIONEERS

Campagnolo were the first road drivetrain manufacturers to go 10-speed, the first to go 11-speed, and now they are the first to go 12-speed. Spot a pattern? First never follows.

This is not a simple case of more is better. Campagnolo’s latest 12-speed system meets the demands of modern riders who desire one setup that delivers tight ratios across a broad range to always find that sweet spot – whether holding the perfecting cadence while climbing or pushing the tempo on the flats.

Campagnolo – DISC BRAKE CONTROL

When Campagnolo was ready to unveil their first road disc brake systems to the world, the world sat up and listened. Campagnolo went a step beyond, taking time to consider the implications of disc brakes on other components to create entire groupsets centred around the new braking standard.

The result is the benchmark in braking performance on the road. From Super Record to Potenza, these systems impress with their predictable lever feel and consistent power application to deliver supreme control.
