Campagnolo Centaur Compact CranksetThe Campagnolo Centaur group is aimed at riders who are serious cyclists, but don’t have the budget or need for the ultra-light parts found in the Record or Chorus groups. Centaur as a group is comparable in performance and price to Shimano Ultegra.

The Campagnolo Centaur Ultra-Torque Compact Crankset is a solid piece of equipment and is available in aluminum or carbon. Besides being better looking, the carbon option represents a significant weight savings. The Centaur aluminum compact crankset weighs in at 835 grams while the carbon version is a feathery 695 grams. It’s nice that Campagnolo offers carbon with some of it’s lower tier groups, but it seems like riders with a taste for carbon may choose to upgrade to Athena or Chorus.

Both Centaur compact cranksets utilize Campy’s Ultra-Torque technology for improved power-transfer and stiffness. The carbon crankset uses a unidirectional-multidirectional layup for maximum strength. 50/34 aluminum rings on both cranksets use an anti-friction treatment for smooth shifting and longer tooth life. Compact gearing allows for simpler, more consistent shifting, improved Q-factor and almost the same gear-range as a triple, without the granny ring. Ultra-Drive chainrings are best used with Campy 10-speed chains.

The Campagnolo Centaur compact crankset is perfect for the committed roadie looking for value and performance in a 10-speed crank. The carbon option will cost more, but rewards the rider with weight savings and great looks. 170, 172.5 and 175 mm crank-arm lengths are available.

    Overall, this a great crankset. Good shifting, good stiffness and great Campy quality for the price. Not as nice looking as Chorus or Record.
