Rated 2 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 2 out of 5 by They work but the calipers are RX The picture and description shows an R1 lever and caliper, however the caliper I received is Rx. These are OEM brakes and do not have the line shortening hardware that the normal retail product includes. This is not a good price on these brakes considering you need to buy two line shortening kits and the calipers are Rx. 07 May 2013

"Il prodotto include la coppia di freni, anteriore e posteriore, e i dischi"

For the vast majority of us that don't speak Italian this means: "The product includes the couple/pair of brakes, front and rear, and discs"

R1s brake set calipers

Hi, I am very interested in this brakeset, but (I guess) like many other potential customers I am rather concerned by the review that states these are supplied with Rx calipers. Please clarify which calipers this set is supplied with as there is no mention of Rx in the product description. Thanks.
