The sparkling legacy of Campagnolo is surely known to every road cyclist, but it extends far beyond this little world of ours.
Even those who might hear the Italian brand name and utter a clueless “campa-what-now?” are familiar with the oft-copied corkscrew design created by namesake founder Tullio Campagnolo nearly six decades ago.
Mostly unchanged since its development back in the 1960s (which company legend states took mere minutes for the initial design to take form), the Big Corkscrew is one of those products that is about as perfect at its job as possible — and looks quite elegant doing it.
To celebrate the iconic design, Campagnolo is releasing a limited edition Big Corkscrew plated in 24-karat gold as well as an 18-karat rose gold version. The price, as you can imagine, reflects the lustrous coating. The Campagnolo Big Corkscrew is available in 24-karat gold for a limited time. At €1,950 for either version, the limited edition gold versions cost nearly 11 times the standard version that comes in a humble satin or bronze finish for €179. Suddenly the prospect of dropping $200 on a corkscrew seems more palatable in comparison, doesn’t it? New finish, same performance
