Why did Campagnolo develop their latest 12-speed road bike groupset? It may have been more than simple one-upmanship. Let Campy’s own development team explain why the perfect number behind movement is undoubtably 12.
Campagnolo Movement 12 – The Meaning of 12
As much as Campagnolo can be a traditional company, steeped in history, and notoriously resistant to change for the sake of change. They do manage to keep developing race winning drivetrain and wheels, and continue to innovate. They may have recently been slow to adopt road disc brakes. But when the Campy Disc Brake Project cam to market, they were offered at more levels than any other producer. And having ridden them hard, we think they might offer the best performance on the market.
So now Campy have become the first big producer to roll out 12-speed road bike groupsets. And, it’s nice to see at least some of the product development team (and of course PR too) in Vicenza don’t take themselves too seriously.
