Campagnolo Cantilever CX Black Cyclocross Brakes
Campagnolo believes in the exciting discipline of cyclocross. The number of enthusiasts of this extremely demanding sport is growing steadily, and that’s why Campagnolo has decided to make an even greater commitment to this speciality.
The new CX cantilever brakes have been specially developed to interact perfectly with the Campagnolo Ergopower 10-speed and 11-speed controls. The form of the brakes is optimised to guarantee the best transfer of braking force from the levers to the wheel and to prevent mud from accumulating between the wheel and the brakes.
The brake pads are adjustable and the distance between breaking pads ranges from 20mm to 35mm, which makes it possible to use tyres ranging from 19 to 35mm and rims from 19 to 22mm.
Cable tension adjustment is fast and precise using a wheel system. The weight of the CX cantilever brakes is only 138 grams (weight including cables and accessories). The CX cantilever brake is available in two versions, black and silver.
The Campy Tech Lab™ engineers have invested all their in-depth laboratory and field test experience into the new CX range, making the new components more resistant and reliable even in the most extreme climatic and terrain conditions.
About Rim Brakes
Rim brakes for bikes use the sidewall of the rim to reduce speed, this is done by a pad on either side applying friction against the rim, which reduces your momentum. Road brake callipers have been redesigned over the years and now use a system called 'dual pivot' which means the brake arms pivot off centre to apply a higher amount of pressure on the rim to increase your stopping power. Most manufacturers use dual pivot callipers on the front and rear, but some Campagnolo brakes use a traditional single pivot on the rear to 'balance' the braking power, the logic behind this is that as you brake your weight shifts on to the front of the bike and as much as 75% of the braking force is applied to the front.
