Campagnolo®'s objective is to provide both professional and amateur cyclists with the best braking system possible, adapted to their riding style. There are those who prefer to always have the maximum power available (dual pivot on the front and rear), and those, on the other hand, who prefer more controlled and modulated braking, with the monopivot in place of the dual on the rear brake.
Features & Benefits: • Front/rear differentiated braking: Lighter rear brake ? greater braking power modulation • New Dual Pivot front/rear version: Enhanced rear braking • New brake fastening screws in aluminium: Reduced weight • New compound: Reduction of braking distance in both dry and wet conditions - longer brake pad and braking track life • Skeleton™ brake arms: No-bend arms, modularity, reduced weight
Specifications: • Brake-pad height adjustment ratio: 40-50 mm (measured from brake fixing-bolt to brake-shoe-nut) • Brake pads orbital adjustment • Lightened rear brake • Skeletonized arms • Special pad compound • Weight: 306g
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Rear dual pivot essential
Bought a silver pair of these Athens Dual pivots to replace the older Chorus rear mono pivot brakes I had for many years. I have always been dissatisfied with the mono pivot design and function. They never stay centered, and after hard braking the right (if I remember correctly) brake shoe will rub on the rim. These skeleton Athena brake calipers are a beautiful design, and the silver finish matches the bike's other older Campy components. The dual pivots are very easy to adjust precisely, so they are perfectly centered and the shoes just kiss the rims equally on both sides as the brakes are lightly applied.
