Spy Shot! Prototype 2015 Campagnolo Super Record “Light” Groupset
Submitted by an anonymous tipster and spotted aboard an Ag2r team’s Focus Izalco Max, these presumably prototype Campagnolo Super Record “Light” cranks, derailleurs and shifters could represent the next generation of the Italian brand’s top level mechanical groupset.
Technically, the “light” part of the name is the unknown. CyclingTips‘ Facebook shows other photos of them dubbed SRL, which we interpret at Super Record Light. However, S.r.l. is also the Italian equivalent of LLC, hence the company’s Campagnolo S.r.l. business name. But we doubt that’s it.
Inspecting these and CT’s photos, the rear derailleur does look a bit leaner, but all appear with the usual phone-cam fuzz, so hard to tell. Graphics are different than current gen, using all-white for now…
The Izalco Max frame uses a PF30 bottom bracket shell, so perhaps the lighter-than-Super-Record-anyway Campagnolo Comp Ultra crankset simply gets a 30mm spindled and is rebranded as Super Record Over Torque. Pure speculation, but could make for a bit less confusion at the consumer level.
It’s also a bit too grainy to tell, but Fulcrum Racing Light tubulars and clinchers use a woven carbon, not UD, and these look pretty un-woven.
All remains to be seen, but new stuff is clearly on the way.
