Campagnolo Super Record 12 EPS Hydro Lever with Caliper
The Super Record EPS electronic groupset, considered a benchmark for its performance and reliability, is now available in a 12-speed version. The groupset has been designed to adapt perfectly to the road 12-speed technological frontier with 11-29, 11-32, and 11-34T cassette combinations. Fast shifting, always precise and effortless for the cyclist, and a very gradual gear ratio are just some of the extraordinary characteristics of the EPS groupset, whose performance is ensured by the tried and tested prior generations and matched by the Campagnolo hydraulic disc brake system and AMS (Adjustable Modulation System) and Reach adjustment management options. This updated version has one major changed, with a new lower position of the lever #3 ensures easier access from all riding positions allowing the cyclist to shift easily from the hoods or the drops.
The shape and functionality of the new Ergopower EPS 12-speed stem from meticulous studies carried out to guarantee the most efficient and effective ergonomics possible. The shape of the updated brake lever with its new 12-speed design is the result of painstaking studies into hand ergonomics carried out in the Campy Tech Lab to ensure that, together with positioning of the downshift lever, the cyclist has an intuitive, practical, comfortable "control center". The Ergopower Super Record EPS Disc Brake controls incorporate the AMS, which allows setting of the desired mode and reach adjustment to position the brake lever an optimum distance from the handlebar.
From a shifting perspective your favorite mechanical elements are found with EPS, just executed electronically. You get the One Lever, One Action principle which is expressed at one lever to brake, one lever to upshift, one lever to down shift. Multishifting technology, namely the option to change several sprockets within a single shift is now applied to all the 12-speed cassettes. You can use the MyCampy app to personalize the Super Record EPS groupset to shift up or down by a maximum of 11 sprockets with a simple click. Developed in close collaboration between Campy Tech Lab and pro cyclists sponsored by Campagnolo, Multi-Dome technology has achieved the perfect balance between force used and tactile feedback, allowing cyclists to feel when a gear shifts. This is best expressed as the so-called "positive" shift action feedback that is so beloved by Campy mechanical riders- but perhaps just a bit more subtle. Still, no guessing when the shift is made. The Ergopower control also offers the cyclist total control over how the shifting process works thanks to the MODE button (found immediately behind the downshift lever on both right and left-hand controls). The MODE button lets the cyclist check battery charge, make accurate adjustments to gears or derailleur (even while pedaling) and carry out any kind of diagnostic check.
The H12 hydraulic disc braking system is very much the same as the H11, but with some new caliper options. The proven design features Flat Mount calipers, which are generally sized to the desired rotor option. The system was developed in conjunction with Magura, uses a very stable Campagnolo-specific mineral oil fluid, and is straightforward to set-up and bleed. The braking power and feel is excellent, and most people find the modulation superlative, which factors in to most choosing 160mm rotors. You get the control you need at all times, in all conditions, but the power of the larger rotor when you need it. The hydraulic hoses and fittings are typical Campagnolo quality. Service parts and tools are widely available, with excellent tech support videos available online.
