Finally it happens. Campagnolo showes their Tech Lab prototype brakes for Lotto-Soudal, Astana and Sarto to use in the spring classics 🙂 Both post mount and flat mount:
And both mechanical and EPS:
Looking better than I thought and if you want to know more you can read about them and see more pictures here: Bikerumor
The groupset came to Specialized Concept Store Stockholm today. Here is both levers, front and rear derailleur with batteries on a scale. It’s really nice, simple to set up and it got feedback like Campagnolo EPS, but without wires and thumbbuttons. Check my Instagram for a short video: Insta
And if you want to watch a more beautiful video Dires Devenyns is in one showing the bad Belgian roads in a way that at least makes me want to ride them all over agan 😉
The red plastic cover on the derailleurs are 3g, battery is 24g so 21g extra on those two.
Pictures are from Bikeradar where you can find a lot of more info on this. Not superlight derailleurs but think that you can drop the wires and frameparts for that which saves a bit 🙂
Everyone should have their own groupset and set their own standards. That’s the new style in cycling. First we had Campagnolo and Shimano, then came Sram. Three good brands with many good parts. Also Mavic was in there for a very short while.
Acros bought the hydraulic mtbgears A-Ge but even when it feels super it hasn’t been so big as it’s really expensive. At Tour de France FSA showed their electronic groupset on some great cyclists bikes.
Now it’s time for a new groupset. Rotor has developed a hydraulic road groupset together with Magura:
It’s said to be developed under 6 years but it seems like it was shown for the first time yesterday. They kept it very secret.
More about it: Velonews
FSA produced cranksets for a long time, brakes for some years and here is the start of their drivetrain. Electronic as in time:

Check this shifters on Lisa Brennauers time trialbike a couple of days ago:
If you missed the newest groupset with a lot of new things made in Italy you got to see this:

Another new groupset from Campagnolo. Athena EPS so everyone who doesn’t have the millions for Record or Super Record also can use electric gears from Campagnolo 🙂
Not any carbon but same shapes
Perfect for your new trainingbike?
Merida O.Nine in progress
Även om jag föredragit en Leftygaffel och ett Cannondale Hollowgram SiSLvevparti så kommer denna bli ruskigt lätt och fin tror jag. Kul att fler än bara Fairwheelbikes vågar satsa på Di2 på mtb (eller har råd kanske är mer passande).
