Campagnolo Ergopower Flat Bar Shifter
 
09/09/2004
Campagnolo’s Ergopower Flat Bar controls are the ideal solution for those wishing to match performance and lightness with comfort and are available in the following ranges: Mirage, Veloce, Centaur, Chorus.

The Ergopower Flat Bar project stems from the concept of providing the same performance and lightness characteristics to cyclists wishing to ride more comfortably. A riding position determined by the use of a straight handlebar which obviously requires the use of special controls, hence Ergopower Flat Bar.

Ergopower Flat Bar controls incorporate the brake lever and gear shifter in one single component, resulting in a compact design and astonishing lightness. In fact we’re talking about a mere 340 g a pair, almost 100 g less than rivalling products.

The ease with which shifting is achieved is amazing. Campagnolo’s engineers concentrated greatly on the actuating force necessary to shift the chain up and down. It is also worth noting that the Ergopower Flat Bar controls allow multiple gear upshifting, i.e. the possibility of shifting up more than one gear in one single action.

An adjusting barrel fitted on the brake lever allows the distance between the lever and the handlebar grip to be adjusted.

In order to assure reliable indexed shifting, the Ergopower Flat Bar controls require a special front derailleur. Since the Ergopower Flat Bar drive mechanism differs greatly from that of standard Ergopower controls, a particular kind of front derailleur geometry had to be used.
