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 new Campagnolo Potenza 11 cassettes are based on a design with one triplet and 8 single sprockets with aluminum spacers. Aside from the 11-32 combination the cassettes are compatible with the rest of the range. The Potenza 11 rear derailleur with medium cage is specially designed for the 11-32 cassette which signals the introduction of not only a new, lower gearing typology, but also a new range of cassettes labeled Campagnolo 11.
