Yeah, "Differential Brakes". LOL! Makes me wonder if Campy hired away some of the Shimano marketing team.
FWIW, last time I looked, a dealer could order Record or Chorus brakesets as all dual-pivot, all single-pivot, or mixed. It is nice to know that those who appreciate the superior modulation of single pivot brakes can still get them for both wheels, if they want to.
