Campagnolo is also creating two new aero cranksets. They both have an enormous carbon piece stretching from the pedal spindle to the inner edge of the big chain ring for aerodynamic performance. The shape is reminiscent of the VumaCrono crank Zipp used to make. The premier crank is called the Bora Ultra, and it has Campy’s highest-grade bearings and a titanium spindle. The Bullet Ultra is the second aero crank. It has similar shape and the chain rings have identical ramps and pins to expedite shifting, but a steel spindle and lower-level ceramic bearings. Campagnolo is extremely explicit that every component in the EPS line is designed to work together and function ideally as a group, but as a concession to the frames that comes with integrated cranks, the Italian component maker says it will honor the warranty if used with another crank.
