Campagnolo to release 80th Anniversary Collection

Limited edition Super Record group and two wheelsets

To celebrate its long history in the sport, Campagnolo is soon releasing an 80th Anniversary Collection consisting of a limited edition Super Record group and two wheelsets. The group comes in a special case that illustrates some of Campy's involvement in cycling and innovation in componentry.

While we do not yet have pricing information, we do have some photography, so take a look through the gallery at right.

Campagnolo said this 80th Anniversary Collection group uses new finishing techniques "such as humid-state microsanding on carbon fiber parts, new opaque finishing procedures on aluminum parts and new treatments for often overlooked technical pieces."

The group weighs a claimed 1,862g.

Campagnolo also has an 80th Anniversary 1,310g carbon wheelset and a 1,590g carbon/aluminum wheelset. Both feature 50mm tall aero rims, Campy's G3 spoke pattern. The main difference is in the braking surface; the former is carbon while the latter is aluminum. As with the group, pricing has not been released.
