Disc brakes on road bikes might be getting all the hype lately, however, rim brakes are very much relevant and are still favored among the pros. And with excellent options like the Record 12 Dual Pivot Brakes from Campagnolo, we're betting that rim brakes will still be around for some time to come.Packing the powerful stopping performance of dual pivots front and rear and updated with clearance for 28mm tires, these brakes will help you build up your lightweight dream bike, with no fear of slowing down on the steepest, longest mountain descents. The dual-pivot design provides better leverage on both arms to produce more clamping force on the rim's brake track. Additionally, this redesign features a new forged shape that increases the stiffness for better modulation and improved aerodynamics. Campy even claims that these Record brakes have the same performance as its range-topping Super Record model, albeit with a minimal weight penalty that comes from slightly less exotic materials. Those similarities include ball-bearing pivots, orbital pad-holder adjustments, and the special Campagnolo brake pad compound. The brakes remain the same brake pad holders as its predecessor and updates the graphics to match the aesthetic of the new Record 12-speed drivetrain. Pads are easy to swap if you go between aluminum training wheels and carbon race ones or for just doing maintenance. A small safety tab at the rear of the holders keep the pads from backing out and with a little leverage from a small screwdriver, the pad is easy to remove.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
