Campagnolo Chorus cassette review£139.99

Precision shifting

BikeRadar score4/5

The Chorus cassette has exactly the same teeth profiles and spacing found in Campag's higher-end Record and Super Record groupsets.

All of the sprockets are coated steel (nickel-chrome), and they should prove to be extremely durable, so unless an all-out low weight is crucial, this is a very sensible option.

Shifting is as confidence-inspiring as you’d expect from Campag, and with deeper teeth than Shimano, it’s reassuringly solid – though not as silky smooth as Ultegra.

Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne. He now mainly rides as a long-distance commuter and leisure/fitness rider. He has been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
