Campagnolo Xenon callipers review

Campagnolo still make the best brakes in cycling, and the Xenon callipers are a welcome improvement to the ones we tested in 2002 in terms of stopping power. If you enjoy pushing your bike to the limit on descents, however, we'd advise you to fit aftermarket brake blocks to improve control.

Camapg's Xenon callipers have great stopping power but ultra-late brakers may want to upgrage the blocks.

Campagnolo still make the best brakes in cycling, and the Xenon callipers are a welcome improvement to the ones we tested way back in 2002 in terms of stopping power. If you enjoy pushing your bike to the limit on descents, however, we’d advise you to fit aftermarket brake blocks to improve control.

The black painted finish actually looks good when mixed with more expensive kit elsewhere and the improved adjusters make them look more expensive than they actually are.

The quick release that’s operated via the handlebar is easy to use, but we prefer the simplicity of Shimano’s calliper mounted cam system.
