While Shimano appears to be stolid in its decision to keep their electronic groupsets hard-wired, Campagnolo is apparently focused on following suit with SRAM, who unveiled the first fully wireless groupset earlier this year.
Indeed, Campagnolo’s latest upgrade to its flagship Record and Super Record EPS electronic groupsets, is a new DTI interface unit, which provides greater aerodynamics, a new charging port and LED battery indicators, over the current V3 system.
In addition, Campagnolo has added both ANT+ and Bluetooth built-in wireless connectivity, which allows the groupsets to be synced with a compatible computer, tablet or smartphone.
As a result, gears and shift buttons can now be adjusted or customized using Campagnolo’s new free MyCampy app.
Campagnolo has provided the following list of upgrades to the V3 module
-Greater integration and compatibility, even with aero frames
-Simple, trouble-free recharging – thanks to the new charging port on the interface
-Improved LED diagnostics
-Wireless technology permits EPS communication with PC / Notebook / Tablet / Smartphone via Bluetooth / ANT+
-Interaction system with the EPS groupset via the MyCampy App
-Newly improved aerodynamic design
-New shape fits perfectly on stem or bars
-New multi-color LEDs – visible on three sides allowing rider to see information from any position
Additionally, Campagnolo has also revised the EPS’s battery, which now possesses a slim cylinder shape for better fitment with most seatposts and frames, especially along the lines of those with extreme tube shapes and profiles consistently found on today’s “aero” framesets. Furthermore, the new battery maintains the same key features as the current version, namely, the vibration absorbing outer material, along with the ultrasonic seals to ensure waterproofness.
