The completely redesigned crankset represents increased rigidity as well as fresh and cutting edge aesthetics.
The new version uses a 4 arm spider design which makes for one single crankarm for all chainring options thanks to its unified bolt pattern.
Gone are the days of having a dedicated bolt pattern for standard chainrings and another for compact rings.
No longer will changing from traditional to compact, or vice versa, translate into the obligatory purchase of a completely new crankset.
The new bolt pattern allows for all 3 chainring standards 53/39, 52/36 and 50/34 to be built upon the same crankset.
Changing between compact and standard is now as easy as changing 8 bolts and two chainrings.
While the new 4-arm bolt pattern makes for a much more practical design that offers the cyclist a more versatile component, the Campy Tech Lab was dedicated primarily on increasing performance characteristics.
The new design incorporates a 8 bolt pattern with a spider arm design that not only holds the chainring in place by way of the bolt but also supports the chainring and in doing so, increases system rigidity.
In addition to completely redesigning the spider, Campagnolo engineers dedicated a great deal of energy towards a completely new crankarm that is a great deal stiffer than previous versions.
Add this new highly rigid crankarm to the new four-arm spider design and you have a complete crankset that not only excels at transferring power more than any previous version but one that is also more versatile with respect to gearing.
This new version of Campagnolo performance cranksets will be available in 170, 172,5 and 175 crankarm legths as well as in all three chainring configurations 50/34, 52/36 and 53/39 . Upon developing this new interpretation of the mechanical drivetrain Campagnolo set about testing various versions both in the lab as well as in the field atop amateurs, semi-pros, veterans and several World Tour athletes.
With each modification scrutinized and critiqued Campagnolo engineers were able to further develop these ideas into what would eventually evolve into the groupsets that have been seen in numerous spy shots at prestigious races of the highest caliber.
