Thanks to its double-fulcrum architecture, the front brake is able to grip the rim with around 70% of the total braking force; the rear brake, which only has a single fulcrum, stops the rear wheel from swerving - due to the lightening of the rear - thanks to the application of a force that is lower than at the front.
The single pin structure also makes it possible to save a few grams compared with the double-fulcrum one.
The analogy is obvious: think of the ABS on cars which prevents wheel locking when braking and think of all the safety this has provided. Differentiated Campagnolo® braking aims to give you the same safety on your bike.
One of the key principles behind the design of every component is the discriminating choice of material.
After considering the complexity of the stress map brake bodies are subject to, we established that the best material for making them remains aluminium alloy.
