The Centaur brake calipers feature forged arms and a dual pivot front and rear design for powerful stopping. To quote Campy on these brakes "Have no fear of going fast". One of the prime features of these calipers (and all Campagnolo calipers), are the smooth pivoting action and the heavy return spring. They offer the rider excellent feel when either feathering the calipers or grabbing a handful of brake for stopping power under extreme load.
The shoes and pads have been upgraded. The pads have an orbital brake shoe adjustment to get the perfect alignment to the rim. This feature is user friendly and makes brake pad/rim alignment a snap. The brake pad composition offers increased stopping power and improved modulation. In summary, these are a good set of calipers ant a very good price. Campy has found a nice equilibrium of value and performance in the Centaur range and these calipers are no exception.
Price includes one pair of dual pivot calipers. Cables and housing are sold separately.
