VICENZA, Italy - Less than six months after the launch of electronic shifting or EPS drive trains, Campagnolo implemented this new feature in a full range of triathlon and time trail components.
According to the Italian component manufacturer, the demand for bar-end EPS controls and EPS brake controls has grown steadily stronger since the presentation of the EPS in Sicily last year. Just six months since the arrival of the Super Record and Record 11 speed electronic systems Campagnolo is now presenting these two new products lines.
Especially for triathlon and time trail use, Campagnolo developed the bar-end controls and brake controls which provide athletes the best performance in terms of aerodynamics, ergonomics, speed and precision, and are also extremely easy to use.
The bar-end EPS controls provide the ability to shift up or down uninterruptedly by up to 11 sprockets. The controls are 100% waterproof and all control components are built to operate in any weather conditions in compliance with the IP67 standard. The Switch Mode button is the “mode” button which allows the user to check battery charge, make fine adjustments to the rear or front derailleur - even while riding and set the zero position of the rear and front derailleur.
The controls are also available in combination with brake levers. By separating the shift buttons, Campagnolo minimizes the risk of shifting mistakes keeping with the company’s philosophy of “One lever-One action”.
The bar-end EPS interface has a RGD led which glows in different colors to communicate system status to the user. The interface manages the setting procedures and receives impulses from the controls before translating them into digital signals that are transferred to the DTI™ Power Unit.
