That's my experience, which appears to go against what spytech is implying in the previous post. Still, one observation is little basis for a statistical inference about the population of 0G brakes.

cheers,


i dont think that the ZG brakes have the same power that the campy brakes do. i also think it would be hard to prove; i have talked to a few that have used both, while they dont think that the ZG brakes are bad, they do not think (as also i) that the ZG brakes are any better than the campy. they just dont have that extra stopping power, i have used them for about a year now on alu rims, not carbon, like stated above. the brake pad material could influence why the campy performance was not as good with carbon - ZG come with brake pads for carbon rims.

using the same pad on both could help you determine which brake you think brakes better.
