Hands On: 2014 Campagnolo Comp Ultra, One Cranks & Bora Wheels – Actual Weights & Details!

2014 Campagnolo Comp Ultra and Comp One 30mm spindle cranksets details and actual weights

Campagnolo’s recent price changes brought out a few new products with little fanfare, but they mark a big change for the brand and leave Shimano as the only major player not offering 30mm spindle cranksets.

The new Comp Ultra and Comp One provide Record and Athena level parts (those are unofficial model associations, but word around Campy’s tent suggested just that), but for now won’t come as part of a “Comp” group. Retail pricing is still TBD, but we’d guess it’ll make it’s way into some 2014 complete bike spec and be available for aftermarket around the end of the year. Updates on that as we get it. In the meantime, we do have actual weights and some install details…

The driveside contains the entire spindle, so no Ultra-Torque style two piece design. The raised section against the crankarm seats into the bearings, which means it’ll only work with Campagnolo bottom brackets. Fortunately, they’re included with the cranksets.

The non-drive crankarm slides onto the spindle, and has a recess for the lock bolt so it ends up with a smooth finish.

The actual order of assembly includes a bearing preload spacer with three small teeth that slide into the grooves on the spindle. Set it against the bearings, tighten the small set screw, then slide the crankarm on and tighten it down until it’s snug against the spacer.

The Comp Ultra has hollow carbon fiber arms, the Comp One is solid. Note the different shapes between the two, from both profiles above and below.

It’s a little hard to tell from this photo, but the Comp One is a bit slimmer.

They get regular Campagnolo XPSS chainrings.

The Comp Ultra comes in at 410g for driveside with 172.5 crankarms and 50/34 chainrings. Non-drive crankarm is 144g.

The Comp One is 423g and 169g for the same length and chainring combo.

Both will need 16g worth of spacer and lock nut, plus the two bearing covers for the bottom bracket. That brings the total weights to 560g (Ultra) and 608g (One). They didn’t have the BB on hand to weigh or inspect.

The Bora Ultra wheels get all-new 35mm carbon tubular rims with a revised nipple interface on the inside. They use the same hubs, so all of the weight savings compared to prior year models come from the rims.

The front wheel is straight pull. The rear uses 21 spokes laced in triples.

They come in very, very light at just 525g for the front and 691g for the rear. That’s just 1,216g for the pair.

  1. Was anything said about bringing the Bora 35 brake track treatment to the other CF wheels in Campy’s line?

  2. Saw yesterday the new Mavic Cosmic >2000 grand and around 1600gr the wheel pair for 40mm/clincher.
    Wonder how much this ones will cost!
    This weight is impressive. Want more details!

  3. Yes! This new OT design looks very promising. Campagnolo have done away with 2 piece design (although UT is OK. PT is not) and removed the bearing from the drive side – Thank You Campagnolo!
    The only thing that bothers me a little bit is the process of uninstalling the non-drive side arm. Is this going to be as infuriating as PT? God forbid….!

  4. Not a lot of tread on the crank spindle, would an internal tread not give better purchase. Very expensive part if the tread shears off.

  5. Are these just cranks or complete groupsets? Just trying to figure out where these fall into Campagnolo’s line up. “Over Torque Technology”…maybe not the best naming?

  6. Which actually leads me to my one pet peeve with Campagnolo. Stop advertising all your features on your products. EG: Ultra Torque, CULT, UHS, etc. Campagnolo is class. It doesn’t need to look like some tacky box for a motherboard.

  7. Love Campy but a little concerned about the nut on the left crank arm that tightens using a pin wrench. Unless people have one that fits well and are VERY careful, that’s going to look bad pretty quickly.

  8. @ TT Ultra-torque is not being replaced (at least not yet), the new design is ONLY for 30mm applications, ie BB30, PF30, BB386

    @Tom These are not new group names, but are rather like Shimano’s ‘non-series’ parts that can be matched to whichever campy group you wish. The cranks are simply 30mm options. Clearly, the Ultra is meant to be SR level, while the 1 will be a good match for Record or Chorus groups

  9. H35 fantastic .. Quintana used during the 100 tour france
    Wheight fantastic..hubs are new..compliments Campy engineerin

  10. I wonder what the Bora 35 rim weight alone is compared to the Bora 50. Want to replace my Lightweights with one of these, would be nice to know what the rim weight is compared to others.
