Campagnolo never ceases to evolve and the range of drivetrains has taken on a new sophisticated element: The 12-speed Record mechanical groupset is the iconic brand that has personified the world's greatest successes in cycling, in both professional and amateur races. The victories race bikes have achieved over the years with this groupset demonstrate the highest level of quality present in the processing, technology and premium materials that have always made it stand above the rest as a unique trademark product.
With the 12th sprocket, a new era begins. Enthusiasts will be able to gain unprecedented levels of versatility on their bikes along with the quality and reliability that Campagnolo is known for. The Record 12x2 groupset project was started from a clean slate and all of the components were redesigned. Performance was improved but the dimensions remained the same so that it is compatible with the frames and wheels currently on the market. The range of the mechanical drive system is extended by the Record Disc Brake components. The hydraulic disc brake system offers power and braking modulability without sacrificing ease of wheel maintenance and shifting.
Campagnolo Record rear derailleur
Designed to improve performance and function in every aspect, the mechanical Campagnolo Record 12-speed rear derailleur has an innovative shape that envelopes the sprockets better thanks to 3D Embrace
technology, creating a double effect: allowing the chain to maintain optimum traction at all times, thus increasing the speed, power and precision of shifting; and ensuring that the derailleur is always kept an optimal distance away from the sprockets.
The redesigned cage has been optimized to work with sprockets from 11 to 34 teeth, allowing a single version to be maintained for all available sprocket sets. The upper part of the Record rear derailleur gearbox is made of carbon fibre-reinforced technopolymer, contributing to its robustness and lightness, while the stop adjustment screws at the back of the rear derailleur make modifications very simple.
Features and benefits of the 12s Record rear derailleur
- Upper body with HO geometry (Hydraulic Optimization) made of ultralight technopolymer reinforced with carbon fibres.
- On bumpy roads, the spring between the upper body and the joint absorbs the vibrations, ensuring the chain‘s optimal support on the sprockets.
- The 12-tooth jockey wheels mean smoother chain movement.
- Possibility of adjusting the initial derailleur position to optimally adapt to each sprocket set.
- The rearward action of the rear derailleur makes it easier to remove and replace the wheel.
A special chainring positioned inside the gear body acts on a rectangular section spring that allows the component to move along a trajectory that perfectly follows the curve of the sprockets.
