SUPER RECORD ERGOPOWER CONTROLS
The new mechanical Ergopower Super Record 12x2 Speed Rim Brake controls: Ergonomics, comfort, control, precision. The new mechanical levers Ergopower Super Record 12x2 Speed Rim Brake offer an important new feature: two brake lever positions for optimum adjustment of the distance lever/ handlebar to the rider's hand. It does so whilst keeping braking efficiency constant the new angle of the up-shifting lever that prevents any possible contact with the curve of the handlebar. The lever position is set easily and safely by direct actuation of the operating elements. The new Vari-Cushion technology improves the contact surface and enables an ergonomic, comfortable and secure grip, ideal for riders who are in the saddle for many hours. The inners of the controls boast a concentration of technologies and experience, starting with the “one lever-one action” feature that assigns one function to each lever in order to prevent shifting errors when tired or distracted. This is followed by the option for multiple shifting that enables upshifting up to 3 sprockets at a time and downshifting up to 5 through the Ultra-Shift mechanism. The new Super Record 12x2 Speed Rim Brake levers introduce a double curvature to improve grip, which are lightened by three slots.
Comfortable support - Vari-Cushion
The controls enable a solid, safe grip when pedalling out of the saddle or gripping high on the handlebar.
Immediate shifting engagement enables activating the front derailleur with minimum effort and in any hand position on the handlebar.
Multiple shifting - Ultra-Shift
An unplanned ascent, a sudden jerk: it takes barely a moment to find the right ratio owing to the multiple action of the controls.
The shape of the body and the possibility to adjust the reach enable all cyclists to use these controls, regardless of the size of their hands or fingers.
Brake lever with double curvature
Offers maximum safety from any position, due to both the curvature of the handlebar and the controls.
