Born on Mt Ekar in Italy, the 13-speed Campagnolo Ekar is not a conventional groupset. Ekar is the world’s lightest gravel groupset: reliable, durable and fast.
With a wide range, close ratio and no compromise, Ekar is designed from the ground up to give you the very best performance, riding experience and reliability for gravel, all-road and endurance riding on the toughest terrain that you want to challenge yourself upon. From the outset the Campagnolo engineers and design team tested and pursued the route of a 1x system being the best for gravel. ...and the light, efficient, precise 13-speed Ekar delivers.
There is a full range of gearing with smooth, small steps for cadence progression and a choice of gear ranges to provide for different road surfaces and terrain within the gravel discipline – each with a wide range and each with spaced progressions for smooth changes and no nasty cadence jumps. 1x offers maximum efficiency, no wasted gearing overlaps, an overall lightweight system and superior chain retention security. Its gears are designed to be gravel-specific with deliberate and natural-feeling progressive cadence control: 1-tooth steps for small sprockets and bigger steps for larger sprockets – for speeds to match every route/road.
Ekar features the best of proven Campagnolo disc brake performance and modulation, technology and feel, all optimized for the very best gravel riding performance. With materials chosen to blend the optimum balance of strength, durability and light weight demanded by forward-looking gravel riders, the Ekar groupset offers precise control and reliable performance – Campagnolo Ekar is the world’s lightest gravel groupset: reliable, durable and fast. #gravelgrinding
