Is Campagnolo Athena good?
One of the most striking and attractive things about the Athena is that it uses more polished aluminium and a lot less carbon than its more expensive cousins, although it shares the same engineering. With the retro revival, this makes it perfect for an old school-looking build.
Is Campagnolo Potenza good?
Of Campy’s mechanical groups, Potenza requires the lightest touch and is the smoothest shifting. I’m inclined to say it is Campagnolo’s best-shifting mechanical group, though it lacks some of the features of the brand’s higher end groups. Potenza upshifts only one gear per press, while Record upshifts up to five.
Is chorus better than Potenza?
Chorus is far superior to Potenza in how it shifts and feels in my opinion. Ultra-shift is just really nice to use. Potenza doesn’t feel much different to Veloce really.

Is campy Athena a good off-road group?
Campy makes the Centaur and Veloce groups with the same lever shape in 10-speed, thus making them prime options for off-road use in the autumn. The performances of Campy groups are best described as graceful, and this holds true for Athena.
What type of sprockets does the Athena™ groupset use?
The Athena™ groupset uses the Chorus™ sprockets. The Campy Tech Lab™ engineers have designed each single tooth to assure optimal drive train engagement along with fast and precise shifting. The positioning of each sprocket has been designed to reduce friction to the maximum and make the pedal rotation silent and efficient.
