As mentioned in the previous pictures, the Athena EPS shifters are significantly longer than Record. Maybe this was for weight reasons, or maybe it was because the Pro Tour teams would all be on Record, and the UCI rule about shifter length would have been a liability with longer blades. In any case, it's not a big deal, because both shifters feel great in the hand. You just wrap your hand around the front of the pod, and leave your thumb and forefinger gripping the base of the blade.
Our second day on the Interbike showroom floor was another great harvest of gear photos and new info. Today we looked at a variety of things, from Campagnolo EPS all the way down to a simple BTA bottle from Profile Design. There's plenty of great stuff in the gallery - have a look, and check back in tomorrow for our final gallery.
