The Super Record 2x12-speed groupset is the highest expression of the prestigious Italian brand's technology and evolution. It is meant for those who want to fit their bicycle with the best Campagnolo has to offer in terms of performance and distinction. The drive to improve what is already considered a reference point results in every single detail being tended to, including the most minute.The Super Record components are both extremely lightweight and very sturdy. This groupset is the crowned jewel of Campagnolo's innovation and the technologies, the materials and the expertise that the groupset is made with place it in a category apart.In order to make optimum use of the 24 gears' full potential and to always find the ideal transmission ratio for every gradient, the drive components - above all the 12-speed cassette, which has one additional sprocket at unchanged space requirements - have been perfectly matched to one another. For excellent braking performance and control the rider can choose between Dual pivot and direct mount rim brakes as well as Campagnolo's own disc brake technology.
Campagnolo Super Record Ultra Torque TI Carbon crankset
An intense concentration of innovation for greatest possible stiffness and precision in derailing.
The Campagnolo Super Record 2x12-speed carbon crankset has been made lighter on the inside thanks to "Hollow Technology" which uses the Ultra Torque
bracket system with a titanium axle to transfer all of the force the athlete applies to the pedal to the drivetrain. The crank can be installed on any type of frame, whether or not it is being used with disc brakes because it optimizes the chain line on the frame with a rear hub flange measuring 130, 135 or 142 mm, without affecting the Q-factor that remains constant at 145.5 mm.
The use of ceramic CULT
ceramic bearings leads to obtaining the smooth ride that the Campagnolo brand is known for. The innovative design of the outer chainring ensures faster, quieter derailing owing to the contoured pin. The symmetrical design of the inner chainring teeth allows improved stability with chain crossovers.
A greater use of carbon fibres at the crank arms with the standard double B.C.D. (112 and 145 mm) reduces the weight while eight fixing screws increase the structure stiffness. The varying number of pins for each of the three chainring combinations (50/34, 52/36 and 53/39 teeth) facilitates upshifting due to the optimised free strokes associated with each combination. The special drains on the inside of the outer chainrings improve performance when downshifting in dead spots.
Features and benefits of the Super Record TI Carbon Crank
- New design, same dimensions
Compatible with all frame systems, regardless of the width of the rear chainstay.
- The right hand crank arms are coupled two by two in the zones subject to greater force applied by the cyclist.
They provide maximum stiffness to the crankset during upshifting.
- Unchanged Q-factor (145.5 mm)
Both the dimensions and the pedaling biodynamics remain unchanged.
- UD carbon crank arms, titanium axle and aluminium chainrings
Substantial stiffness and excellent power transfer.
- Symmetrical inner chainring teeth
Fluid and precise drivetrain, even with the greater crossovers.
- Optimized design for every chainring combination
Maximum performance, always.
- Double standard B.C.D.
Improved system stiffness and reduced weight due to increased use of carbon fibre.
- Superficial treatment of the chainrings for a longer lifetime.
Campagnolo found a way to permanently conjoin the semi-axles of the bottom bracket to the respective crankset arms. This redesign made it possible to considerably reduce the lateral dimensions at the axle level and prevent annoying contact with the ankles when turning the pedals.
Assembly is simplistic: one single oversize bolt is enough to integrate the two semi-axles. With regard to torque transmission efficiency, this system is equally as effective as a single piece axle.
Furthermore, despite the narrow side profile, Campagnolo has been able to position the bearings outside the bottom bracket shell, resulting in greater axle rigidity from the increased axle diameter. This breakthrough was obtained by using an ingenious mechanical system derived from many years' motoring experience in the rotation axle and engine shaft coupling sector: the Hirth joint.
In short, this is a joint with self-centring and self-aligning frontal teeth located in the middle of the bottom-bracket axle where the ends of the semi-axles, integrated with the crankset arms, come into contact.
CULT ceramic bearings
The highest performing ceramic bearings combined with Cronitect steel make for a combination that is 9 times smoother, resistant to corrosion and extremely long lasting.
