History

Campagnolo Super Record was released in 1974 as the successor to Campagnolo’s top tier group set, Nuovo Record. The Super Record group set was in production from 1974 to late 1980’s. The following cables were included with the Super Record group set, however these cables were generally utilized at all group set levels.

Interestingly, the ferrule on modern Campagnolo shift and brake cables is nearly identical to those of modern group sets which means you can use modern Campagnolo cables with vintage group sets.
