Centaur replaced Athena. 99 was the last year for Athena and had bearing Ergo levers and dual pivot brakes (the cranks ans brakes are carried over to Centaur). Both Athena and Centaur mark the entry into Campy's hi-end line. Veloce is the top of the mid line. Check out the Campyonly website for more details.
Centaur replaced Daytona, not Athena. nmOldEdScott

Point taken. Daytona, which was nothing more than a reneamed Athena group lasted but a season before Campy was forced to change the name do to trademark issues (Daytona) is already owned.
