    As a Di2 user I’m shocked to say that’s actually all pretty cool :-)

    • James Huang

      Let’s hope the 2017 Dura-Ace Di2 incorporates something similar. At the very least, it’d be nice to be able to customize the programming using a smartphone app instead of physically connecting the groupset to a Windows PC or tablet.

    Shift assist could be great – could it FINALLY get riders to NOT run the chain all the way up the cogset while climbing in the big ring, run out of gear and then BANG…try to shift down to the small ring under intense pressure? Some pros can even be seen doing this at times – followed by stopping to put their chain back on, or just throwing the bike away as the team car arrives with a replacement.

    Here’s the first down load from my campy shift data:

    Approaches large ramp. Down shift FD to 34. Down shift RD.Down shift RD. Down shift RD to 28. Cadence 95. Cadence 90. Cadence 85. Cadence 70. Cadence 65…

    You get the picture.

    This is cool!

    But as a fan of classic bikes and gear it somehow makes me hanker for an old steel framed race bike with downtube shifters.

    No Garmin, no Strava, just 12 gears and legs and the wind flowing over my leather helmet.

      Then buy one. No one is stopping you. Are they?

      • Peter

        No, of course not. I will buy one of each, ‘cos they are both so cool in their own ways.

        Very awesome tech from Campy. Glad they are staying on the bleeding edge with this stuff.

  • Jesper

    Great article, thanks!
    While this is a great start, I wish Campy would have added some more functionality that you can’t do today. Things like:

    1) Prevent outer most chain cross (configurable), so you would be able to run the new Potenza 11-32 cassette on a short cage, having 50/32 and maybe 50/29 combinations blocked.

    2) And like wise. Blink Orange LED when/if you go 34/12 and RED, if you try 34/11. Would also be nice if the DTI had a vibrator like a cell phone, to use for warning about bad gear selections. You might not always see a blink LED, but a shaking handlebar is had to miss. Unless it’s real bumpy.

    3) Add a “Quick stop” feature for those of us that also use the bike for commuting and stop for red lights a lot. Would be nice if you could set it up so the mode button would make the RD multishit to e.g. the 3rd largest cog, if on the big ring. This way, you wouldn’t have to shit down by feel, then look down at the cog and shift the remaining gears to hit your preferred starting from zero gear. When braking for a red light, there is usually a lot of other things to pay attention to. Like unpredictable tourist pedestrians/bikes here in Copenhagen.
    Might also be useful for a pro rider, stopping for a crash (from a few rows behind)

    4) Expand the shift assist to do the same as Shimano’s synchro shift. That said, I have SS on my MTB and it’s less than useful in the terrain we have here in Denmark. (Short hills up-down-up-down all the time)

    5) Expand the Shift Assist, so you have an option to shift FD with or without the RD. IF you’re on the flat, you might want it, but if you pass a hill top, you might want the big gear change to be ready to go fast downhill.

    6) Would also be nice if pressing both up & down (level & thumb) at the same side and time, could trigger a function. Like the Quickstop i 3) or FD shift with or without RD Shift Assist.

    7) Trigger RD shift with the FD shift lever, if shifting the direction the FD already is. So hitting left thumb button, when (already) on small ring, would trigger a shift to a bigger cog. Like wise, activating left level, when on big ring, should change RD to a smaller cog.
    This should useful if you are using your right hand for eating/drinking, messing with phone or bike computer etc etc.

    8) As an alternative to 7) make a mix of the “left hand only” and “right hand only” (combined mode), so EITHER mode button change FD and EITHER level up cog and either thumb button down cog. Would allow full shifting with either hand/shifter, in case of crash, where you could have both broken shifter or hurt arm/hand.

    9) Alternative version of multishift, where you can configure at what cog the RD stops, rather that how many it shift. Kinda like the Quickshift suggesting in 3), but you’d have to hold the level.
