Campagnolo Record 11 Front Derailleur $185.00
The Campagnolo Record 11 Front Derailleur is identical to the Super Record unit save the titanium hardware. We're not shy about the fact that many people choose to step down their front derailleur when running an otherwise Super Record group. We're looking at a 3g difference. We'll let you decide if that difference is worth the duckets.
The Record 11 front derailleur is different than the 2010 and earlier iterations in a small, yet significant way. Yes, the cages are the same, carbon-outer, aluminum inner, compatible with both compact (110mm bolt circle diameter) and standard (130 and 135mm bcd) chainrings, but the cable pull routing has been changed. The cable now runs in a more direct line from the bottom bracket shell to the pinch bolt. Before you would bend the cable around the pinch bolt before cinching it. The cable no longer needs to be bent. This speeds up the shifting. Campy front shifting was always fast and easy, but this adds some blazing to the action. And remember that it's designed for 11-speed cranks, chains, and Ultra-Shift ergopower levers, not 10-speed.
The Campagnolo Super Record 11 Front Derailleur can be had in three different ways -- braze-on, 32mm clamp, and 35mm clamp. It can handle a maximum 54 tooth chainring and a maximum large/small ring differential of 16 teeth. The clamp and pivot are Black, the outer cage is Carbon-Fiber, and the inner is Brushed Aluminum.
