The Power Unit was originally modified to be mounted internally on the seatpost both to protect it from the elements as well as to confer an aerodynamic advantage to the overall build. With the advent of increasingly aerodynamic frames and with them even slimmer tube forms Campagnolo has produced an even more advanced version of its power unit ; the V3.
This new version of the internal power unit maintains all of the previous characteristics and technologies that derive from the V2 such as a vibration absorbing outer material, ultrasonic seals providing a waterproof construction and industry leading autonomy and house them all in a slimmer, more versatile package.
This new structure opens up the possibilities for internal mounting not only in the most aerodynamic framesets with very slim tube designs but also gives a greater deal of flexibility with regards to placement within the frameset. Thanks to this new slim structure the EPS advantage is now available for all frames, no matter which make or model you choose.
