Campagnolo to launch new Super Record RS groupset

Spy shots of Campag's latest top-end mechanical components

Campagnolo is launching a new high-end mechanical groupset called Super Record RS. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that it’s launching an RS version of its existing top-end Super Record groupset, because the differences appear at first sight to be minor.

The new components have been on display on a new Colnago C60 road bike at Taipei Cycle for the past few days, but details are very hard to come by.

Campag is keeping schtum for the time being. Visually at least, the changes appear to be tweaks rather than wholesale redesigns.

The RS components are all mechanical rather than electronic EPS items.

We have no indication on price or an availability date so far. We’ll keep you posted when more details become available.
