Description of Campagnolo Potenza 11 Power-Shift Ergopower 2x11 - silver
Campagnolo's Potenza 11 fills the gap between Athena and the higher tier components of the Chorus, Record and Super Record series. The Potenza parts profit from the “trickle down” effect of top-end technology and solutions originally designed for the benefit of the World Tour level athletes and which brings several technologies found on Super Record to more accessible groupsets in the Campagnolo range.
There is no groupset that has benefitted more from this than the newest group in the Revolution 11+ family, the Potenza 11. The shared DNA is so evident that many components of the groupset will require a close look beyond the logo to identify any significant difference which often is represented by a mere change in material. But Campagnolo doesn’t produce different grades of performance and with this in mind every product leaves the factory only when it has proven to live up to their own quality standard. So the Potenza components are technically the higher tier groups' equal in every way.
The performance of the Campagnolo Potenza 11 Ergopower controls are top of the line thanks to the Power-Shift technology which enables multiple upshifting (3 gears) and single downshifting. Concerning durability the controls were improved once again for the Potenza group. The possibility of one single downshift at a time permits the incorporation of an internal lever on both, left and right.
The strong points of the Potenza controls are comfort and safety which characterize the whole Revolution 11+ series. The brake levers with double curvature and the hoods design based on the ergonomics of the hand make these controls offer a grip and control that is identical to the versions of the professional riders demand. For the Potenza 11 models the hypoallergenic silicon material hoods have been slightly altered in order to offer even better grip and comfort.
