Want to lighten your bike without lightening your wallet? The Ciamillo Zero G20SL calipers, which come in at just 163g for the set (claimed, without pads), are on rare pre-season sale in Black and Clear+Black ano.
The brakes normally retail for $349/set, but they’re offering $50 off if you order by end of day Friday, March 13. That puts them at $299, which is only $40-$50 more than the street price for top level “group” brakes…and far less than many other high end options.
