Here you go..from Peloton
It seems as though the tipping point has been reached. Road disc is not just an option, very shortly it will be the only option for a high-end bike, relegating rim brakes to the bike path. With Campagnolo launching its road disc brake components, H 11, every major component group manufacturer has an attractive disc braking option. For all those disc brake deniers out there, just remember, every argument being made against disc has already been made, over 10 years ago, when mountain bikes went disc. We don’t see any serious rim brake mountain bikes anymore, and we won’t see any serious rim braking road bikes in five years time.
What an ignorant comment from Peloton.
Equally ignorant would be deny that disc brakes have some advantages
The dis-advantages for road are distinct from MTB requirements, namely a premium on weight and aerodynamics
Up to the end user whether those drawbacks are outweighed by superior stopping power
Just to be clear - although that quote was attributed to me (I don't agree with it at all) it was a partial quote taken from when I posted the Entire cached Peloton article that was taken down as they released the info too soon.
However I have seen enough stuff that it sounds like the Aero Penalty is minimal at worst and with good design can be mostly if not fully negated.
I've had enough Disc bikes now - starting with with Avid Mech's 12 years ago - to RS685's and now on SR with Spyre's on my gravel bike that I'm really not a fan - due to the noise issues. They all make a great racket at points - especially when wet or dirty.
That being said Campy Carbon rims with Campy pads make noise as well (although they do work quite well).
The part about the new Campy Brakes that has me very intrigued about is the supposedly lack of noise.
I'm still just P*ssed about the lack of Post Mount.
I've been in touch with Hope and they are going to Test their RX4's with Campy levers, and Magura Calipers use the same fluid as Campy (and they make the Campy Calipers and Hydro Parts in the levers) so I would guess they would work.
Let's just hope Campy will sell the levers separately like Shimano does.
I know - it wasn't attributed to you by me though ... I was very careful to say "from Peloton".
As far as I know there is some aero penalty, which might be small but it's there, and of course a weight penalty, which as things stand isn't small in the context of the weights obsessed about on here.
Campy pads on campy rims I ride everyday and like the sound. It's aeronautical at worst ...
