Campagnolo Centaur Red & Black Carbon Power Shift E 2012
Centaur™: Ergopower™ Controls The ergonomic design of the Campagnolo® Ergopower™ controls also used for our 11s groupsets provides the most correct and secure support for the hands in all driving positions. The Centaur™ Ergopower™ controls feature the Power Shift System™ mechanism, which makes it possible to move the chain by three sprockets in downshifting and one in upshifting.
Lever version carbon fibre with core in light alloy.
Ergo Power™ Power-Shift™ Controls A system that is both user-friendly and high performing, with no compromises. Once again, the design for Campagnolo‘s controls has reached extraordinary levels: the “one lever – one control” system, greatly appreciated by riders all over the world, remains. The system has the same ergonomics successfully tested on our Ergopower™ controls and comfort is ensured by the Vary-Cushion™ hoods along with the numerous ergonomic solutions of the well-tested Ultra-Shift™. With the Power-Shift™ system designed by Campy Tech Lab™ and featured on our 2011 Athena™ 11 Speed, Centaur™ and Veloce™ 10 Speed groupset ranges, you can move up 3 sprockets at a time and move down by one. Controls have been designed to maximize shifting performances: precision and speed will enhance the qualities of your Campagnolo® drivetrain and will allow you to face all kinds of routes with zero concerns.
Greater shock resistance – racing style: Vari-Cushion™ hood: made of non-allergenic elastic material, with variable cushioning that provides the maximum comfort and safety even after many hours on the bike. Thanks to a special treatment, it is resistant to UV rays and maintains its original colours without fading.
Power-Shift ™ Mechanism: extremely fast and precise, it allows you to upshift by three sprockets at a time or downshift by one with just a single action.
Ultra-Shift™ Ergonomics: ensures a firm grip on the handlebars and fast, precise control of the levers. The special ergonomic design makes it possible to assume three different hand positions on the levers compared to the two traditional ones.
Double Curvature Brake Lever: allows you to engage and modulate the brake safely from any hand position.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Cool and comfy
The ergoshaped hoods not only has a wonderfull agressive attitude with the inward sweep at the top but also very comfortable providing numerous hand positions. The upshift button can be operated by the thumb from the drops and when resting high on the bar with the pinky. Adding to the comfort and versatility is the "large hands insert" witch also adds an extra bit of reach for the hoods. The brake release mechanism built into the STI works quite well. I very much reccomend these for road but the downshift button is however, in my oppinion, not suited for Cyclo Cross.
