Hot on the heels of decidedly more digital updates like a new EPS battery and wireless transmitter and the MyCampy app, Campagnolo hasn’t forgotten the mechanical parts. They’ve just added direct mount brakes, giving aficionados the same improved stopping power and aerodynamic improvements afforded Shimano and TRP users.
The two-bolt mounting design comes in two iterations, one specifically for forks and seatstay placement (on right), and an alternate rear brake design that provides a better option and more clearance for under-the-bottom bracket chainstay mounts. They use the same Skeleton design as their standard rim brake calipers to keep weight low and stiffness high, and easy adjustability is built in, too…
Mounting is quick and easy, with a lock nut to ensure everything stays tight.
Adjustment screws are outward facing for quick, easy access. We’ve requested weights, pricing and availability and will update as soon as we hear back.
We’re still waiting on disc brakes from the Italian component manufacturer, but at least now they’ll be able to keep a full group on the new breed of aero bikes, like those from De Rosa.
