It is nice to see Campagnolo continue to offer 10-speed levers to their customer base and not completely disbanding 10 speed for the now-standard 11-speed technology. The "Red" version features subtle but classy red-colored details on the front of the brake lever and red-anodized hardware to up the ante in terms of aesthetics. Campagnolo gives 10-speed users some of the upgrades of the newer groups as these 10-speed levers have improved Ergonomics and brake lever shape for precise control with several hand positions. Also added are the Vari-cushion hoods for improved padding of variable thickness where it is required. All in all a great upgrade if you want the new style ErgoLever on an older 10-speed drivetrain.
It is evident that Campagnolo has put serious thought into improving their Ergo Brake/Shift levers. Campagnolo has tweaked the shape of the levers to both provide more room for the fingers but with a shorter reach. The Vari-Cushion hoods feature different softness in different areas. They have excellent shape memory, UV stability and wide temperature stability. The No-Bulge cable housing routing provides better comfort and avoids uncomfortable bulges where the hands are placed. The Powershift mechanism allow upshifting by up to three cogs and downshifting by one with a single action.
