Based on the ‘new’ Athena from the late 80s and early 90s this Campagnolo Xenon brake-set comprises a pair of lightweight aero plastic levers and front and rear calipers, all in their original box. The grey finish is good looking and quite unusual, and the calipers and levers are typically good Campagnolo quality, the choice of material for the levers was obviously to save money but it has, for Campagnolo, uncharacteristically saved weight too. These brakes were frequently used on TT bikes back in the day thanks to their aero profile and low weight.
Pair of brake levers (without hoods) and front and rear calipers in their original box, pads, barrel adjusters and allen key bolts are intact too, just add cables.
