Podcast 88: The New Campagnolo Ekar groupset with Graeme Freestone King Cycle Systems Academy

    • Sports

While you may have read about the new Campagnolo Ekar groupset online, or even been lucky enough to test ride it from a Campagnolo Pro Shop dealer, you won’t have had this much insight we reckon.
Long term listeners will have heard Graeme before but for the uninitiated, he is the head of Campagnolo tech training in the UK and founder of the excellent velotech-cycling.ltd.uk/training.shtml He also spanners for the World Tour team, Movistar and is involved in much product development at Campagnolo’s HQ in Vicenza, Italia.
In this pod, Graeme explains the thinking behind the new Ekar gravel groupset, its place in the market and the tech in each piece as well as how it all works together.
We were particularly pleased with some of the news concerning disc brakes as well as excited to try this new groupo out for ourselves soon.
Many CSA Level 3 graduates go on to do the Campagnolo Pro Shop course with Graeme. Contact him at Velotech for details, for non UK listeners, contact Campagnolo to find out your regional training provider.
