Campagnolo’s popular Chorus groupset gets a revamp for 2011 with improvements to front gear shifting with the eXtreme Performance Shifting System (XPSS) chainrings and new lighter and smoother internals on the Ergopower levers.

There’s hardly any overall weight reduction for Chorus as there is on the other 11-speed groupsets but it could be argued that at approximately 2,100 grams with 100 grams more for Record and Athena at 100 grams less, the group is now better differentiated from its cousins, if you’re in that eternal dilemma of which group to buy based on weight.
