– 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.
– 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.
– 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.
