|Campagnolo has decided to go a step further than the simple compact crankset, and develop a fully integrated 10-speed drivetrain so that there are no half measures where safety, performance and longevity are concerned. This project has resulted in the new CT crankset and CT derailleur. |
Which is why we can now introduce the first compact drive train.
Campagnolo CT Crankset
The cranks are born of a project that skilfully unites Multidirectional and Unidirectional Carbon Fiber technology. The Campagnolo CT crankset will be available in the Record, Chorus and Centaur versions, each of which shall be produced with 34-48, 34-50, 36-50 toothings together with 170, 172.5 and 175 mm cranks. The chainrings have been created specifically for the Campagnolo CT crankset and are not compatible with other cranksets.
Campagnolo CT Derailleur
The diameters of the CT chainrings are smaller than those used in traditional versions whereas the tooth difference is considerably larger. This is why a special derailleur must be used if the utmost in performance is to be achieved. The front cage of the special Campagnolo CT derailleur is more curved in order to match the curvature of these smaller chainrings. In this way the tail of the cage plate does not distance itself too much from the chainrings. The profile of the inner cage plate is higher so that the chain can be shifted easily from the smaller chainring to the larger one and is shaped like an inverted “S" for increased precision when shifting the chain from the larger chainring to the smaller one. Use of this special derailleur is highly recommended since otherwise the chain could fall onto the bottom bracket shell, provoking considerable damage. The Campagnolo CT derailleur will be available in the Record, Chorus and Centaur ranges in both braze-on and clamp-on versions.
The Campagnolo CT crankset and derailleur will be available as of September.www.campagnolo.com
