Which is better of between Athena and Centaur? I know the Athena is 11sp but other than that the price is the same. Need to choose and not sure which is a "higher" spec between the two. Cant afford chorus or record. Are they on par with the Ultegra or force?

I would go Athena. Who knows for how long Campag are going to be producing 10 speed groupsets, and at least you will have an upgrade path to Chorus/Record/Super Record.

They are both on par with each other, just one gear difference. Centaur is normally slightly cheaper.

They are pretty much in the same league as Ultegra. The version with the carbon crank is quite a bit lighter than Ultegra, the aluminium crank versions weigh in at a similar weight to Ultegra.

I think the Athena has a chorus cassette and chain so would go 11speed. the you only have odd things to upgrade later on.
