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.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Front: 151 grams
Rear: 147 gram
Total: 298 grams
That is in accordance with my expectations, my TRP brakes which wiggle no longer sells are about 125 grams each.
I would suggest buying the correct brakes for the levers or upgrading both levers and brakes to a paired system.
You would, however, benefit from installing new DA cables as this will let you enjoy the full benefit of the 9000 braking system.
Wiggle's price and service is tops.
Rim width: 19-26mm
You should stop being a pov though, and get the full DA9000.
