Campagnolo, New: 12-30T and 52/36

Campagnolo has a newly re-designed Centaur cassette and it is being offered in two options for 10 speeds  (note the 30T!):

12-30: 12-13-14-15-17-19-21-24-27-30
12-27: 12-13-14-15-17-19-21-23-25-27

Also new are the 52/36 11 speed cranksets for Super Record, Record, Chorus and Athena:

Campagnolo's logic: Campagnolo wanted to offer the broadest range of ratios possible (16), but with no loss in the vital prerequisite of derailing quality. This crankset offers the same derailing speed and precision as standard or compact components.

The 52/36 Super Record and Record cranksets are compatible with the Campagnolo EPS electronic drivetrain.

  1. Darn! Just bought a 13-29 for the new bike. I did switch out the 13 with an 11 though. 13 sucks on steep descents.
