Campagnolo Announces New Over-Torque Crankset

However, the mission of Campagnolo is not merely to have a highly competitive product but rather to continuously innovate to find new solutions.

The newest solution from Campagnolo comes in the form of cranksets developed with the recently developed Over-Torque technology. The revolutionary new Over-Torque product was developed in an effort not only to push the limits of both rigidity and weight but also to come in a format that adapts in a more efficient manner to frames with oversized bottom bracket designs.

The new design in the Comp Ultra version weighs in at nearly 54 grams less the previous lightweight offering from Campagnolo. At 563 grams the Comp Ultra represents a new low-weight benchmarkfor its class and when considering its rigidity and capability to transfer power efficiently is perhaps the new quality standard for oversized bottom bracket cranksets.

Campagnolo has always taken pride in having not only products that perform at the highest level, but that maintain that performance over time and are durable in their construction.

The development of these two new cranksets follows this policy of durability and long lasting performance.

For example, the new Over-Torque series of cranksets were tested and validated at fatigue levels over ten times higher than current regulations require. Corrosion tests above and beyond what are used in the automotive industry were employed to guarantee that the materials used will hold up against the elements. Campagnolo even went as far as to develop and patent new production processes and treatments that guarantee the maximum in quality and structural reliability of the product over time.

With this attention to detail added with the complete traceability of each and every part Campagnolo guarantees the uniform quality of each and every piece of every product it produces.

The new Over-Torque technology will be available with 2014 range and in two different crankset versions; the Comp Ultra 11s with an extremely low weight of 563 grams and the Comp One 11s that weighs only 605 grams.

Both versions are available in 53×39, 52×39, 52×36 and 50×34 configurations with the option of crankarm lengths of 170, 172.5 and 175mm for each configuration.

Both cranksets are designed to interface perfectly with 68×42, 68×46 and 86.5×46 standards and have corresponding bottom brackets for each version.
