Once a weight-saving option and only available on the more costly brakes, single pivot (differential) rear brakes are now standard on most of the Campagnolo range except Mirage.
These dual pivot brakes are essentially a black painted version of the Alhonga, or Tektro 521AG, and the range of drop is 51mm and 69mm, making them perfect for older style bikes.
FSA is better known as a manufacturer of finishing kit components such as handlebars and headsets, but already has a front mech to its credit and a complete groupset is expected.
The legendary Dura-Ace brakes were for a long time the standard against which others were judged, but anyone in the know would tell you that it was more to do with the choice of brake pad compound.
