Until Campagnolo set the world on its ear with its Record sidepull brakes in 1968, high-performance brakes were centerpull. The most notable centerpull was the Mafac Racer, made famous by five-time Tour de France winner Jacques Anquetil.

Since then, Campagnolo brakes have been sought-after works of functional art.

Part# BR-09

These calipers were produced in the early to mid-1990s.

This was Campagnolo's most advanced single-pivot design, used in Chorus, Athena, Veloce and Mirage calipers. In 1994 Campagnolo began producing dual-pivot calipers and slowly integrated them into the whole line. By 1998 all Campagnolo calipers were dual pivot.

The monoplaner design had a lot going for it. The forces were centered in a single plane on the pivot, instead of having them slightly offset as in normal single-pivot side pulls

This pair is short-reach, 39mm - 49mm
