FIRST LOOK: Campagnolo 2007

The main story for new Campagnolo groups is the Ultra-Torque BB however they have upgraded and re-assigned all of their groupsets at all price points. So more ten speed and plenty of better quality features down to the lowest groups.

The other major re-working is the redesigned brakeset with Zero Gravity inspired cut-outs. But Campagnolo forge their brakeset rather than CNC machine so the result, they claim, will be stiffer and stronger. It also has a single pivot rear brake to reduce heavy rear wheel braking as previous Chorus and Record groups have.

The front shifter and Ergo lever has also been re-designed. A lighter action and semi-indexed approach will make shifting easier.
