CRACampagnolo is pleased to introduce an addition to its line-up of finely made mechanical groupsets: It is called Centaur 11. While attentive fans of the Italian brand are sure to note that this is not a new name but rather one that has graced the catalog in the past. The latest version takes a huge leap forward and represents even greater value and performance than any preceding version ever made. The trickle-down effect of top end groupset technology certainly benefited the Centaur 11-speed groupset but has added an extra element of not only value but race-ready performance on a groupset within reach of nearly every cyclist to make Centaur an asset to any frame. An aluminium groupset with performance that punches far out of its weight class, this version of Centaur aims to compete directly with competitors most accessible offerings. The Centaur project saw its central aim at offering an accessible groupset without offering entry level performance or features.
Plenty of higher tier characteristics have been incorporated into the Centaur 11-speed aluminium crankset such as the innovative 4-arm spider design that trickles down all the way from the Super Record version to allow for an independent BCD (increased rigidity and structural integrity) in addition to a universal crankset made to accept all chainring combinations. Additionally this is the first aluminium crankset with an Ultra-Torque spindle and you have a component that mimics very closely the very same crankset that is found at the pinnacle of the range.
The 11-speed Centaur Ultra-Torque crankset for those who want a lighter transmission or prefer more agile ratio sets, but do not want to pass to a triple crankset.
The chainrings feature a special anti-friction treatment to improve smooth chain operation. Eight pins on the large chainring offer faster shifting speeds. MPS (Micro Precision Shifting System) chainrings allow faster shifting without lag under any conditions.NKSET 11SP CENTAUR 4-ARM 170mm 34-50 BLACK
