The Campagnolo Record mechanical groupset has always been associated with the greatest cycling successes and sublime performace. The new 12 speed groupset continues the legend that is Record.
This listing is for the groupset with direct mount brakes. Please excuse the photo.
All BB options and cassette options are available. If a BB option or the 11-29T cassette are required then add that at notes at checkout. Prices are unchanged. If Direct mount brakes are required then an invoice can be sent as that adds about £90 to the price.
12 speed is not just 11 speed with an extra sprocket. The rear derailleur is a totally new design. The top jockey wheels sits in front of the cassette and very close too it ensuring maiximium chainwrap around the sprocket engaged thus minimising wear and maximising shift speed and accuracy. The cassette range is wider. The shifters are not called Ergo's for nothing and the thumb shifter has been positioned so downshifting from the drops is even easier than before (it was never hard).
With the new Record 12 speed groupset and Campagnolo® quality, you can be sure that victory will be within reach.
Campagnolo shifters have always been a one of the most innovative parts of the group set due to their near-perfect ergonomics. Campagnolo have refined the 12x models even further, slightly angling the brake lever blades to allow for greater braking control over rougher surfaces. The curve in the blade is more pronounced, offering greater comfort and aerodynamics. The groups are made even more accessible thanks to three levels of adjustment where the lever can be set for riders with a different reach. The hoods have also been given an update and the Vari-Cushion technology has been further improved allowing Campagnolo to create a hood with different thicknesses giving greater grip, comfort and water dispersion. The shifters have also been enlarged for greater shifting control, with the upshift lever being brought closer to the brake lever blade creating a more aesthetically pleasing and easier to use shifter.
Inner and Outer Cables
Campagnolo have manufactured completely new inner and outer cables. The new versions have a higher level of rigidity and drastically reduce friction and ensure a much longer life. Braking and shifting is impressive thanks to the new technology. Smoothness is maintained even when internally routed through the handlebars.
The front derailleur gives quicker and more immediate upshifting thanks to its new design and trajectory angle. The front derailleur also uses a dual position cable grip bolt to allow for use of tyres up to 32mm following current market trends. The inner cage shape has also been re-designed to enhance shifting fluidity and allow for accurate and fast movement.
Dramatically different and elegant design for the rear derailleur produced in an ultra-light technopolymer with reinforced long strand UD carbon fibre. 3D Embrace technology is huge step forward from current derailleurs function. When you see how the derailleur shifts, you’ll notice that the jockey wheels are incredibly close to every single sprocket giving smooth, instant shifts and maximum efficiency. The derailleur also weighs less but maintains the same rigidity and durability. The trajectory curve has been optimized for 11-29, 11-32 and 11-34T cassettes. A new upper body return spring has been redesigned to absorb road vibration and protects the derailleur from violent movement on the road. It can also fit direct mount and and standard systems making it easier to remove the wheel during the maintenence..
With the additional sprocket on the cassette the need for a range of cassettes is eliminated. The extra gear allows for single tooth increments all the way up to the 7th sprocket. The shift curve on these new cassettes is so much smoother than competitor 11 speed brands. The cassette is an identical width to the 11-speed versions so they are compatible with all existing Campagnolo freehub bodies. When researching other 12-speed equivalents on the market, they found an incredible amount of flex due to the single ring set up of the cassette. Campagnolo’s are fixed to a spline to offering greater rigidity and smoother shifting. The cassette's last two triplets are CNC'd out of one piece of steel for optimum stiffness Alloy spacers have been used for improved durability.
11-32T and 11-34T cassette are listed. 11-29T can be supplied. request it in notes at checkout.
The cassette used is the Super Record 12 speed.
The chainsets in both groups are a smoother, more aerodynamic design than the previous version with incredible aestheticics. The hollow carbon construction offers a low weight without sacrificing stiffness or reliability. The bolt design has also changed from four to eight, which enhances the chainsets stiffness further. Both models will be available in 165mm to 175mm lengths and compact, semi compact and race chainring options.
Ultra torque is compatible with various BB standard. BSA and italian threaded BB are assumed in the pricing. However BB30, PF30, BB30A, BB86, BB right and BB386 standards are supported too. Add a note at checkout for the BB standard required.
The chain is one of the most complicated components when redesigning a groupset simply due to the narrow width and strength required. Campagnolo’s new chain is thinner, lighter, engages quicker and offers the exact same durability as an 11-speed chain.
The Record brakes have been completely upgraded. Campagnolo have created a powerful new option which is designed to work with up to 28mm tyres and are far more aerodynamic. The lever movement and bearings are completely new, this aid in modulation and increases smoothness. Braking power has notably increased. Direct mount brakes are whats listed here.
Bottom bracket supplied is BSA or Italian threaded however if a press fit standard is required BB86, BB30, PF30, BB386, BB30A or BBright then please add this request to notes at checkout or send an email.
COVID 19 update. Overseas shipping is now with a courier only. UPS or Parcel force.
Orders placed in the afternoon normally get sent the next workday where possible. Orders placed before noon are often sent the same day but this is not guaranteed. Priority is given to Royal Mail Special delivery items always.

- For a £7 surcharge, a next day (not sunday) tracked service (from dispatch) with Royal mail special delivery is used. You get an hour delivery slot by text. It's a fine service and worth the money. This only works for items up to 2kg. beyond that it gets very expensive and Parcel Force 24 tracked is used.
- Rims are sent by courier only- cost £10. UPS is used. A phone number and email address must be supplied to allow me to book in. This service can also be picked for smaller items that you want delivered by UPS.
- Wheels shipping cost is £15 (cost of courier + cost of the box) next day. To NI, Scottish Islands, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and that is a two day service.
Due to the disruption in postal services during 2020, misdeliveries, customs issues and long delays all overseas shipping is now with UPS or Parcel Force. Parcel mass and destination affect price. So the following applies. I do not offer cheaper slower mail services anymore. Please don't ask as it means you have not read this page. There is no circumstance where i will use a cheaper service.
The website will provide shipping rates and estimated delivery's times for the services offered at checkout.
The import charges you will face are and these will be levied by the shipping carrier or by your customs authority in advance of delivery. Customs clearance will add to shipping times. Carrier like UPS operate there own customs in line with the deliveries countries laws in most jurisdictions and will bill you directly.
