Campagnolo Chorus EPS 11 Speed Front Derailleur
After a mass request from the market and cycling aficionados Campagnolo have added Chorus EPS to the electronic groupset range. The image that Chorus has built for itself over the years identifies the role of this groupset in the electronic range: excellent performance, reliability and quality combined with a sort of understatement. No bells, no frills! The shifting performance of the Chorus EPS front derailleur is exactly the same as it's lighter weight siblings, Record and Super Record, making for a transmission fit for professional racing. Boasting an optimised design and driven by the highest quality motors available today, the front derailleur moves the chain precisely in all conditions, even under strain. The derailleur is composed of a mechanical structure with dropout and a series of electronic parts. The outer derailleur rod held in place by a double-finned pin that passes all the way through to increase rigidity. The system that links the derailleur to the frame is made of aluminium co-pressed with the engineering polymer of the body of the derailleur. This creates optimal solidity and rigidity ensuring that the dérailleur maintains a correct position with respect to the frame. The core of the derailleur is composed of an electronic actuator; in turn composed of a gear motor with a built-in resolver that uses Magnetic Hall Sensor technology (as the sensor is not in contact it is not affected by the vibrations generated by the terrain, and is therefore always precise). The gear motor was developed in partnership with a Swiss company that produces electric motors used in missions to Mars. The actuator is also equipped with a "cascade gearbox" which allows movement to be transferred in an exact and rapid manner.
