The new Campagnolo Super Record RS crank uses Ultra-Torque split spindle
Detailed modifications for improved mechanical shifting
This article originally published on BikeRadar
We spotted the brand new Campagnolo Super Record RS groupset at the Taipei Cycle Show, and now the Italian marque has released some photos of the new gruppo.
Campagnolo says it's an evolutionary development of Super Record, created collaboration with pro-riders who prefer mechanical shifting – Pierre Rolland of Europcar among them – and is "one step closer towards the ultimate goal of mechanical shifting perfection".
Officially, Campy says it aimed to improve reliability in extreme conditions – in other words, the aesthetics haven't altered much from standard Super Record.
Chainrings, their tooth profile and slightly redesigned front derailleur are where Campy said its engineers lavished the most attention. The result is better performance in tough conditions, so we can expect the brand's sponsored teams to roll it out in the upcoming muddy and dusty cobbled classics.
Interestingly, the crank on the new Super Record RS is Campagnolo's Ultra-Torque two-piece spindle model, not the newer, lighter, Over-Torque design it released last year.
Still, the new tricolore decal work looks the business and hardcore Campagnolo lovers will snap units in the limited production run that's available in 53/39, 52/36 and 50/34 configurations.
