2011 Campagnolo, Fact or Fiction?

I'm still trying to wrap my head around why these photos appear on a Taiwanese (?) website but nevertheless the good news, if the photos are true, is that riders would have some good choices for alloy brake/shifter options in the Campagnolo groupsets.

It appears that alloy levers will be available in the 11 speed Athena and 10 speed Centaur and Veloce groupsets.

There is also a cyclocross crankset pictured.

The photos are from here (the top photo is Athena 11s, the remaining photos are labeled).

Stories for the Italian Cycling Journal about rides, granfondo, having a good time cycling in Italy, Italian cycling history, etc. are very welcome. Contact me at There are more than 1,300 stories in this blog. The search feature to the right works best for finding subjects in the blog and there is also a translate button at the bottom so you can translate each page.


  1. The Taipei International Cycle Show would be my bet as to why these showed up on a Taiwanese website.

  2. Or maybe they were leaked from the OEM side?

  3. Great news! I cant wait to upgrade my Tommasini Tecno with alloy Athena 11s parts with those alloy levers. Good work by Campagnolo to recognise the retro-trend.

  4. Uh oh - maybe that's where the 2011 stuff is gonna be made....
