The Campagnolo Athena 11spd Ultra-Shift Ergopower feature all the design particulars. The form of the body follows the natural form of the hands, thus allowing for a more comfortable position when the hands are resting on the controls. The lever has a double curvature, which provides an adequate place for the fingers whether the hands are positioned on the upper or lower part of the handlebars. This guarantees perfect braking in every situation. The brake lever is in carbon fibre with aluminium core. This ensures reliability over time, stiffness, mechanical resistance and corrosion resistance, a long life cycle, and an aggressive ''racing'' look. The lever hoods incorporate Vari-Cushion technology developed by Campagnolo, which gives a different consistency depending on the point: softer where it serves to dampen vibrations, firmer where the hands need to have greater sensitivity and grip. The mechanisms of the controls are made of special low friction polymers that make shifting very light and maintain extremely high precision over time.
