EPS Ergopower controls represent the direct “electronic” evolution of the well-proven mechanical Ergopower. Maintaining the special features, unaltered, the operating philosophy (one lever one action), Campangolo's trademark click feeling, Multishifting technology for the rear derailleur lever, the excellent ergonomics, the comfort of the brakes and the extreme braking efficiency.
This alone is a sufficient introduction for the new Athena™ EPS™, a groupset differing from these prestigious models only in the materials used and price.
Although made predominantly from aluminium, Athena still includes a number of carbon fibre components, making it the lightest electronic drivetrain in its class, while its ergonomics and derailing and shift performance are exactly the same as Campagnolo's range-topping drivetrains.
A dream within reach of all Campagnolo enthusiasts.
MODE KEY: THE MODE KEY In addition to the 3 classic levers, the EPS Ergopower controls are equipped with what is known as a MODE key. By pressing on it briefly you can view the battery charge level, whereas by pressing on it longer you will enter adjustment mode without ever taking your hands off the controls.
COMFORT: The shape places the levers in a position that is easy to access at all times, without any effort at all, regardless of the steering position and whatever the size of your hands. By studying the positions of cyclists' hands, in fact, there were found to be 3 different riding positions depending on the route and riding style itself. These studies made it possible to create the special and exclusive shape of the EPS Ergopower controls, which unlike the mechanical controls, are equipped with a dedicated hood and the control body is made from a very new material that is more rigid and lighter.
EFFECTIVE BRAKING:The Ultra-Shift™ shape of the levers, as with the mechanical controls allows you to act on the brakes more powerfully. When you have a high grip on the handlebars, especially, it is possible to put the brakes on with more power and faster.
E2ERGONOMY: he design of the body of the control conforms perfectly to your hands. The shape of the control reproduces the asymmetry of the human hand perfectly, increasing the amount of surface that is in contact with the palm of the hand and allowing you to use different gripping positions with your hands and guarantee maximum safety in all riding positions. The position of lever 3 has been improved in comparison to the mechanical controls, making it easier to use even when your hands are gripping the lower part of the handlebar. This makes it easier to change gears downhill or when you take the lead or suddenly overtake.
WARNING - All connection, installation, removal and adjustment operations of the EPS drivetrain must only be carried out by a Campagnolo Service Center, a Campagnolo Pro Shopor a mechanic specializing in the installation of EPS systems. Any Tampering with or incorrect or incomplete installation of any part of the EPS system will automatically void the warranty.
NOTE FOR SPECIALISED MECHANICS - Please remember that all assembly, disassembly, adjustment and maintenance procedures for the EPS drivetrain are described in the EPS technical manual.
