Hey! Shimano is coming out with Dura-Ace hydraulic disc brakes. They are already making them for some professional racers.

Rumor is that Shimano just filed a patent for their smaller piston design and how it integrates into their brake levers. It totally blows away what SRAm is doing. And once the patent is approved, not even Campagnolo will be able to make hydraulic disc levers the same way. Shimano has basically shut the door on Campy making decent hydraulic levers ever.

Not really ... Campag can always license the patent. Or patiently wait the 17-20 years for the patent to expire though. :noidea:
