The new Campagnolo Super Record is wireless, disc brakes only, and the thumb shifter is gone

Campagnolo today announced a long-awaited update to its top-tier Super Record group, with the release of a disc brake-only wireless group called the Super Record Wireless. Even more surprising is that it got rid of the thumb shifter.

When the brand announced its previous iteration, the Super Record EPS in 2018, it was ahead of the curve as the first of the “big three” to jump to 12-speed cassettes. However, fast-forward five years, and both its closest competitors SRAM and Shimano have caught up, overtaken, and far surpassed the Italian brand in the technological arms race.

Lots of rumors and gossip – in addition to a Leaked patent document — we’ve already told you that Campagnolo was about to respond, and he’s given some clues about what the new product might look like, but today we finally have the details.

Super Record Wireless marks the company’s soon-to-be-90-year-old’s first wireless suite. However, we’re told that our newfound wireless knowledge will almost certainly carry over to Record, and possibly Choir as well.
