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 precisely shifting comes as much from the meticulously designed ergopower controls as it does from the Centaur’s front derailleur, which adopts its design and mechanical function from the original Revolution 11 + front derailleur design developed initially for professionals. The ergopower internals couple with the longer front derailleur rod and one-piece steel cage to ensure precise and reliable shifting with minimal effort required to upshift from internal ring to external.
