Campagnolo is pleased to introduce an addition to its line-up of finely made mechanical groupsets: It is called Centaur 11. While attentive fans of the Italian brand are sure to note that this is not a new name but rather one that has graced the catalog in the past. The latest version takes a huge leap forward and represents even greater value and performance than any preceding version ever made. The trickle-down effect of top end groupset technology certainly benefited the Centaur 11-speed groupset but has added an extra element of not only value but race-ready performance on a groupset within reach of nearly every cyclist to make Centaur an asset to any frame. An aluminium groupset with performance that punches far out of its weight class, this version of Centaur aims to compete directly with competitor’s most accessible offerings. The Centaur project saw its central aim at offering an accessible groupset without offering entry level performance or features.
The Centaur 11-speed rear derailleur guarantees fantastic shifting and offers a great deal of versatility as well thanks to a new trajectory angle. The movement of the Centaur rear derailleur was studied in order to render it compatible with all cassette options up to 32 teeth. This allows Centaur to meet every cyclist’s needs with one single model. And it does so while weighing 15 grams less than the long cage version of its competitors.
The outer aluminium parallelogram plate features the exclusive Ultra-Shift geometry which guarantees maximum shifting rigidity, fast actuation, precision and reduced friction. The design of the upper and lower bodies has been optimized to achieve the maximum rigidity and at the same time to reduce the weight. The medium cage is even light and thanks to its geometry it is more rigid and lighter. The composite rollers reduce vibration and improve the silence of the drivetrain.
