Campagnolo disc-brake callipers are the result of countless hours of R&D, all in the pursuit of levels of braking performance and reliability that are worthy of the Campagnolo name. Made from forged aluminium, they are available in a flat-mount configuration, meticulously designed to be perfectly compatible with all flat-mount frames and forks currently available, without the need for converters or adapters. Avoiding the use of adapters gives the system greater stiffness and integrity, as well as improving aesthetics by avoiding any unnecessary materials. With 160 mm callipers on the front and a choice of either 160 mm or 140 mm versions on the back, the cyclist can choose the perfect combination for their own frame.
The calliper is installed with just two different-length screws, ensuring perfect frame compatibility. Campagnolo’s solution not only eliminates the need for additional screws, which helps to reduce weight, but also provides a super-secure construction with the possibility to visibly inspect all bolts. The 22 mm pistons are made from a phenolic resin, chosen for its thermal insulation qualities, providing excellent transfer of power from the lever to the brake pad. The brake design includes a magnetic spring on the pistons, eliminating the need for mechanical springs and ensuring the pads return faster. Campagnolo engineers spent a huge amount of time on this small component, to make it as safe and reliable as possible.
