Just as Campagnolo’s ground-breaking first quick release lever can trace its origins to the Passo Croce D’Aune climb, the innovative gravel-focused Ekar groupset was born on another summit local to today's Campagnolo headquarters: the Ekar.
With its asphalt giving way to tracks and trails, climbs and descents the Ekar epitomises the special challenges of Italian Gravel riding. The Ekar components deliver a 1x13-speed transmission the way it should be: wide range, close ratio and no compromise.
Campagnolo Ekar cassette
Campagnolo’s considerations behind the gearing ratios and cadence-managing shifts is fundamental to the design of Ekar’s gravel-specific cassettes. And their tough, durable yet efficient build matches the clever maths perfectly to life on the Gravel trails of Italy’s Mt. Ekar, and wherever in the world your adventures will take you.
13 sprockets make the logic of the 1-speed system possible. And what makes it work so perfectly for all-road riding, is the introduction of a 9-tooth cog. It means the wide range of gear ratios is not just possible, but that all the natural, progressive cadence-matching shifts create a uniquely satisfying ride.
With the lightweight and versatile N3W freehub and a 2-block design to combine steel strength and aluminium weight-saving. Ready for every specialism of Gravel riding and every kind of rider!
