Campagnolo and SRAM launch new groupsets

The technical arms race continues among cycling’s biggest players. The venerable Campagnolo, and (comparatively) new kids on the block, SRAM, each pulled off the covers from new groupsets this week: a flagship, mechanical offering from Italy and a cyclo-cross groupset from America.

Campagnolo is certainly not among those who believe electronic shifting will become de rigueur. It’s new flagship Super Record RS groupset offers mechanical shifting

Campagnolo clearly don’t number themselves among those who predict that electronic shifting will become the sole platform. The new Super Record RS groupset is the Vicenza firm’s new flagship mechanical offering, a twin peak to stand alongside its EPS cousin.

Over in Chicago, SRAM lifted the lid on its Force CX1 groupset – an offering the company claims is the world’s first dedicated cyclo-cross ensemble and which features a 1×11 drivetrain and the company’s X-Sync chainrings with alternating ‘thick’ and ‘thin’ teeth.
