The Campagnolo Chorus Skeleton brake calipers really came into vogue in 2007. They feature forged arms, which achieve a weight reduction of 36 grams compared to the 2006 model. How? By eliminating unnecessary material, which remarkably results in the rigidity under load being enhanced. The Skeleton front brake has double pivot action for braking power, which is right where power is needed. The rear caliper is a single pivot design, which of course further reduces weight. These Chorus brake calipers are identical to the Campagnolo Record version except for some well-placed alloy and titanium hardware. With a dual-pivot, skeleton design and such a light combined weight of the calipers, you should consider foregoing the weighty price tag of the Record brake calipers and opt instead for the Campagnolo Chorus Skeleton brake calipers. The brake shoes were redesigned, as well as the brake pads, and you'll see new graphics in place also, more black in color. The side view relief of the calipers and the visible "skeletonized" aluminum are pronounced. There is a safety tab mechanism that prevents the blocks from accidentally falling out. The tab can be released with a little leverage using a screwdriver. You will find these Skeleton brake calipers retain Campy's famous braking modulation and braking strength. The brake reach is 40-50mm and there are quick releases on the brake lever blades.
