The existence of Campagnolo’s new Ekar groupset hasn’t exactly been an ironclad secret, but today it’s finally been revealed in all its glory, and the details are indeed pretty juicy. As suspected, Ekar is a 1×13 mechanical drivetrain developed specifically for gravel. It’s also quite light, sufficiently economical that we’ll see it come stock on a bunch of new bikes, and — now that we’ve been riding it for the past few weeks — it works really well.
Is this the rebirth of Campagnolo fans have been waiting for? It might very well be.
