Het Britse Cycling Weekly plaatste onlangs een test van een Pinarello Dogma met Campagnolo Super Record EPS online. Dit zijn de highlights daaruit.
“The micro-click, which feels and sounds a lot like the mouse button on your home computer, adds so much to the tactility of the shift and your confidence that when riding criterium circuits I’d find myself counting the downshifts while coasting into the hairpin, then as you start to pedal out the mech places the chain in the gear you asked for and you’re ready to get on the gas. In fact this kind of highlights just what makes electronic shifting so good and it’s that you know the chain is correctly aligned – it always is.
The front and rear mechs themselves really serve to highlight the differences in electronic shifting over mechanical. While the front mech is bulky thanks to its miniature gearbox and motor sitting on top, it’s also immensely powerful; the chain has no choice but to conform to the mech’s will.
The same could be said of the rear mech with its titanium nitride-coated actuator; so sleek and beautifully crafted from carbon-fibre but at the same time looks fragile and vulnerable stuck out next to the rear wheel ready to be damaged by the smallest of tumbles. And at £640.99 for a replacement that could be a very expensive little spill.
In essence that rear mech encapsulates all you need to know about Campagnolo’s take on electronic shifting. It is sleek, clever and a positive step forward in improving shift performance – especially in the long term. But above all else, it’s expensive. Very, very expensive.”
