Shortly after announcing their Record/Super Record EPS groups, Campagnolo brought in compatible brake lever and bar end button pods and electronic levers.
For 2013, the original bar end e-levers drop down to the Athena EPS level and Record gets these shorter, lighter levers. The super stubby lever design is based on sponsored rider feedback saying they didn’t need them to be longer. They also fit well within UCI rules and are race legal.
They’ll work with Record and Super Record EPS, not Athena (here’s why). The small button under the lever is the mode/settings button. Their EPS TT brake lever shifters don’t have the mode button because some OEM customers won’t want to spec button pods on both the lever and bar ends.
Pro teams should be getting them next month and aftermarket and OEM parts should start shipping by February. Retail pricing not set yet. Flick through for more pics…
For comparison, these are the original EPS TT levers, now marked for the Athena group with the alternate wiring, making them incompatible with Record/Super Record EPS.
