The Campagnolo Record 11 Ultra Shift cassette
is the kissing cousin of the Super Record 11 cassette. Only one
distinction of note separates these models: While the Super Record 11
cassette is built with 5 steel cogs and 6 Ti cogs, the Record 11
cassette is built with 8 steel cogs and 3 Ti cogs. On the Record 11,
only the low 3 cogs (i.e. your climbing gears) are made from Ti. The
other 8 are nickel-chrome coated steel.
All of the Ultra Shift
technology built into the Super Record 11 cassette is equally present in
the Record 11 cassette. You get the same cog tooth synchronization.
Note how the teeth on each cog look similar at the same place on each
cog. This enhances shifting precision and reduces stress (thereby
increasing the lifespan) of your chain. And you'll note how select teeth
on each cog have a sharkfin-like shape. This shape serves as a gateway
for upshifts. The Ultra Shift cog design works hand-in-hand with your 11
speed Ergopower shift levers to provide quicker shifts with less
effort. According to Campagnolo Ultra Shift requires 13% less effort to
achieve rear derailleur shifts in comparison to pre-Ultra Shift.
Record 11 cassette should attract people who are looking for added
longevity in their components. The steel cogs are coated with
nickel-chrome to increase durability, and when you keep in mind that
steel is a harder material than Ti, you can reasonably expect a longer
useful lifespan out of a Record 11 cassette than a Super Record 11. At
201g, the Record 11 cassette weighs a mere 24g more than Super Record
