Mavic SSC R2 brake calipers. New in box, $250.00

Early Mavic brake calipers were made by Modolo. But these, produced in the mid-2000s were made in the Mavic factory.

They are dual-pivot with a stainless-steel leaf-spring that exerts only a gentle force to open the calipers. This gives the brakes a light feel, while the triangulated arm keeps the calipers from flexing and losing the rider's braking force.

And, with a stainless-steel spring, you don't have to worry about the spring rusting.

They do not have a quick-release. That would have to be part of the user's brake lever. These calipers are said to work very well with Campagnolo Ergopower levers, which do have a quick-release.

Mavic gives the pair of calipers a weight of 314 grams.
