Campagnolo is pleased to introduce the long-awaited Disc Brake component line.
By placing more emphasis on maintaining integrity and ensuring Campagnolo quality and less priority on being “first to market” the Italian company has concentrated solely on quality while ignoring the calendar and accepting none of the compromises associated with working in haste.
Extensive research and development as well as countless hours and kilometers by professional athletes were put into the Disc Brake Project and the time has come to show off the products that have earned the prestigious title of “Campagnolo Corretto”.
While the Disk Brake Project doesn’t mark the company’s first foray into hydraulic stopping power, having developed performance solutions for motorcycles a few decades ago, the new cycling-specific project required an entirely new area comprised of both new talent and seasoned engineering veterans within the Campy Tech Lab.
In a collaboration with Magura, this new and highly specialized engineering wing of the Italian Campagnolo facility set forth to apply Campagnolo engineering expertise to the German brand’s existing hydraulic braking technology in order to develop a road disk brake solution that is truly worthy of the Campagnolo brand name.
Magura’s expertise in hydraulic functionality proved to be fundamental in terms of guaranteeing the best possible functionality while incorporating both Campagnolo designs and technical input.
To meet standards of ergonomy, performance, reliability in addition to new design and safety aspects developed by the Campy Tech Lab, Campagnolo engineers spent months developing, prototyping and modifying version after version leading up to today’s finished product. Despite taking advantage of an industry icons hydraulic expertise, the Campagnolo engineering staff played a leading and active role in the development and modification of each and every single component within every piece of the Disc Brake Project range, making the new DB line a veritable Campagnolo product 100%.
The Campagnolo performance standard is now available for disc brakes and no matter if you choose mechanical or electronic shifting, there is now a Campagnolo disc brake solution for your cycling needs.
