Campag brake pad compatibility

Postby lef » Mon Nov 19, 2012 21:43 pm

Does anyone know if these...

...fit on Super record? I'm assuming they do but wanted to check before I pressed the button.

No, you probably need the latest (2011 onward versions) - can't find the Campagnolo ones online. Measure your holders - the latest ones are 55mm long

Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

I think the 2011 change just involved a new rubber compound and the adding of recesses/dimples for the clips on the newer brake shoes - my 2007 chorus brake shoes are the same length as the current ones. Don't know when the change from shorter to longer ones was though.

In any case, if you have the latest SR you need the latest pads with the clip recesses, although these pads are backwards compatible with the older 55mm shoes that lack the clips.

One really stupid thing about the introduction of the clip design is that Campag effectively nullified the whole point of it by making the pads backwards compatible. Because the pads still need to work with the older clipless shoes in which they are held in place by friction alone, they are still really difficult to change, even if you are using the newer shoes with the clips. Whereas my campag compatible reynolds blue pads are really easy to insert and remove, they are a fairly loose fit and rely entirely on the clips to keep them in place.

well best way to find out is order them. If they dont match the ones on the bike I'll return them.
Thanks

see here:

Quote "The problem is that Campagnolo have introduced the new style 2011 pads with the little recess for the spring clip on the rear, but have not changed the part number from the 2010 pad."

So you may get the new ones with the clip recess (which you will need if you have SR from 2011 or after), or you may not...

P.S. I'm not sure the guy who wrote that article I link to above has actually tried changing Campag's own brand new style pads (as opposed to 3rd party new style ones). I have, and they are not easy to change at all (unlike my Reynolds ones).
