Campagnolo Record EPS 11 Speed Front Derailleur
The Campagnolo EPS drivetrain is an organic set of mechanical and electronic components that have been designed to work together in an integrated way, guaranteeing maximum performance. The Record EPS front derailleur is a perfect example of this, interacting with the mechanical chainset it improves both derailleur speed and precision thanks to X.P.S.S. technology. The 8 special upshift zones and 2 downshift zones on the chainrings combined with the speed and precision of the new EPS derailleur guarantees top performance. The Record EPS front derailleur combines a traditional mechanical structure with a series of premium electronic parts. The mechanical structure has been specifically designed and optimised for the increased demands of an electronic drivetrain, improving both setup and shifting performance. The core of the EPS front derailleur is an electronic actuator, which in turn comprises of an electronic 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 electronic motor used by Campagnolo was developed in partnership with a Swiss company that produces electric motors used for space missions to Mars. The actuator also features a "cascade gearbox" which allows movement to be transferred in a fast and precise manner.
