New 22 Speed MTB groupset premiered at Mt Victoria

Capital Cycles was pleased to premier the new Campagnolo 22 speed MTB groupset at the recent Wild Wellington MTB race. Fitted to a new Colnago Master-X, proved outstanding on the course.

Having trialed SRAM XX and concluding it to be an outstanding groupset, it was hard to imagine having a couple of extra gears. In this case the Super Record 22 speed groupset was configured 11-23 with 53 & 39T chainrings.

Note the new shifters that replace the need for bar ends

And check out the super sticky Continental GP4000S tyres (highly suited to the dry conditions) on Campagnolo Neutron Ultras. These wheels, after years of testing in the grueling Paris Roubaix, were ideally suited to the fast technical rooty descents.

Despite passing 30 riders on the first lap - the 5 minute change-over stopped the bike winning fasted lap honours.

Lookout for this groupset on a trail near you!!
