Sitting right in the middle in terms of price but probably outperforming in terms of quality, the Campagnolo Veloce groupset has plenty to offer.
There are eight components in the Veloce set, centering on the well regarded Ultra-Torque crankset.
The main obvious competitor to this set is the Shimano 105 range, which is a bit cheaper and most agree is not as good quality.
Some go further and argue that the Veloce is superior to the more expensive Ultegra set, but that is debatable.
The strengths of Veloce is the extremely quick and precise shifting, coupled with the terrific peddling efficiency that comes from the Ultra-Torque cranks.
Most find the shifters to be in a comfortable and accessible position, although some complain about the plastic shift levers.
It is also not the lightest set in the market, but that is because it sits in the middle of the price range.
On the whole this is a good value-for-money groupset that won’t break the ban and which will be an upgrade on most standard bike gear systems.
