Campagnolo has unveiled two new dedicated cranksets that feature PressFit capabilities.
Instead of using adapters, the new Over-Torque Comp Ultra and Over-Torque Comp One cranksets incorporate their own one piece BB30 spindle. And, while both are compatible with existing BB30 bearings, Campagnolo will also offer it’s own bearings in both steel and ceramic versions.
Rather than designating either crankset as part of a particular groupset (i.e. Record or Chorus), Campagnolo has decided to keep them separate.
According to Campagnolo the Comp Ultra with hollow crank arms weighs in at 563g, with an msrp of $870, while solid carbon crank arms increase the weight of the Comp One to 605g, it lowers the price to $725. Both cranksets are available in 170, 172.5 and 175mm lengths, along with Campagnolo’s proprietary 110 and 135mm bolt pattern.
Campagnolo says installation is a breeze, however, both cranksets require a couple of special tools that the company offers.
The new Comp Ultra version of the Over Torq crank is equilivent to Super Record and the top of the line from Campagnolo.
There will be three bottom bracket cup sets available to mate the new cranks to these frames.
The new cranks come in Ultra with ceramic bearings and One with stainless bearings and are not specifically intended for Super Record, Record or Chorus groups leaving it up to you to decide if ceramic is worth it or not.
