Although this compact crankset is aimed at non-competitive riders looking to get into an 11 speed group, some have complained about the absence of a wide range cassette like the 11-28 offered by Shimano. Recreational riders who do longer, hillier century rides and sportifs may want something like a 12-28 or a 12-32 to tackle big climbs.

A bonus in the new Athena group is the option to get the crankset in carbon for additional weight savings and style points. The Campagnolo Athena Compact Crankset comes with crank-arm lengths of 170, 172.5 and 175mm.
