For more than 75 years, Campagnolo has been at the forefront of cycling innovation. From the invention of the quick-release hub to the Gran Sport derailleur, Campagnolo has always tackled difficult challenges with a sense of bravado that's won them a fiercely loyal fan base. So, it's not surprising that Campagnolo spent twenty years and went through six research models to develop the ultimate in electronic shifter design, the Super Record 11 EPS Ergopower Shifters. To make sure they got it right, Campagnolo subjected this electronic breakthrough to over a season under the legs of the MoviStar Team. While long out of reach for non-professionals, Campagnolo' s electronic prototypes are in production, and preferential accessibility is a thing of the past. EPS shift levers are coming to take the cycling world by storm. Campagnolo rethought the mold, quite literally, of lever design when it developed the EPS, or Electronic Power Shift, to surpass its mechanical shifters. While competitors integrated an adjustable lever position into their existing shifters' designs, Campagnolo engineers conducted studies on the ergonomic functionality of shifters to develop the e-Ergonomy Evolution, a re-design of the esteemed Ergopower Levers. Along with new dedicated hoods, the new levers follow the contours of the hand to create more contact and control, direct powerful braking, and full lever usage from any forward position on the bars, and for any hand size. The position of Lever Three, for downshifting, has also changed from the mechanical Super Record; it's now swept down into a smooth, longer contour that requires less compression, and nearly eliminates the long reach of its predecessor. The new Lever 3 makes the downshift more accessible from deep in the drops and more comfortable from the hoods. As expected, Campagnolo engineers have gone above and beyond to accommodate Campy purists wary of electronic shifting by retaining their 'one lever, one shift' motto, and by develop...
