Campy Elevates The Gravel Game With 1x13 Ekar
Classically road-oriented Campagnolo elevates the modern gravel game with its gravel-specific 1x13 Ekar mechanical groupset. Positioned between Chorus and Centaur, Ekar was conceived as a singular groupset rather than a hierarchical series. With Ekar 1x13, Campy comes out of the gate swinging with the lightest claimed 1x gravel groupset in its class.
Ergopower Shifters - with the Ekar group, Campagnolo has made detailed gravel-orientated modifications to its popular Ergopower shift levers, retaining the inherent design of the system's renowned precision and comfort with the Vari-Cushion hood. With differentiated levers you'll never miss a shift again – even in the toughest offroad racing environments, Campagnolo's proprietary One-Lever-One-Action philosophy ensures distinct separation of shift motion for the right gear - every time, all the time.
Ekar's lever 3 has been redesigned with a larger C-shape, easy to reach with your right thumb while riding on the hood position. Ekar Ergopower levers feature flexible reach adjustment to fit your hand and finger size and suit the demands of your riding style. To further enhance control in rough terrain, Ekar's aluminum lever blade and control finishes are laser-cut with additional texture to increase stability and grip under difficult conditions.
Ekar's proprietary Ultra-Shift mechanism actuates the 13-speed rear derailleur, enabling you to sweep up to 3 gears in a single movement. The security of single downshifts is ideally suited to gravel riding on slippery, undulating and unpredictable surfaces.
Ekar Calipers - as with Ekar's Ergopower controls, the other elements of its disc braking system are developments of proven Campagnolo designs – faithful to Campy's philosophy of continuous improvement, high performance and Italian style. The Ekar brake system's internal hydraulics are shared with other Campagnolo high-end calipers, using mineral oil and delivering the advanced modulation and distinctive feedback feel that works so well on the road and even better in the rough stuff!
Ekar's caliper has a fresh new design and finish, to coordinate with the gravel groupset's other components. The DB310 pads – also compatible with other Campagnolo disc brakes – have a unique organic compound that not only help produce high braking performance but also deliver improved wear resistance: essential in the tough world of gravel racing.
