FSA Gossamer Brake Calipers $78.00
In recent years, FSA has set out to create the toughest performance road components on the market, and the result is the Gossamer series. Stylish, durable, and precise, Gossamer has become the go-to line for anyone looking to put some hurt, aka 'fun,' on their road rig. Case in point are the FSA Gossamer Brake Calipers.
FSA designed the Gossamer Brake Calipers to excel in any condition that you will use road caliper brakes. Whether it's the cruel weather of winter or a hors categorie descent, the Gossamer has you covered. The optimized geometry and compact dual pivot design increase braking power and provide decisive modulation for the most winding of descents. The new pivot is designed to operate friction-free, so the Gossamer calipers will work when you need them to, even on wet roads. For protection from the elements, all of the Gossamer's hardware is made from rustproof Cro-Moly; for strength, the Gossamer caliper arms have been cold-forged. FSA has also made pad adjustment a breeze by using cartridge pad holders with orbital pad adjusters.
The FSA Gossamer Brake Calipers are sold in a pair, and are offered in Black.

I have a Specialized ALLEZ SPORT, that...
I have a Specialized ALLEZ SPORT, that came with Sora brake levers, and Tektro, dual pivot brake callipers. I want to change the brake callipers for the FSA Gossamer, but I do not know if they are compatible with my Sora levers. Would they work? Or should I get some brake callipers form shimano?
Excellent brakes for the price

When building up my flat-pedal city bike to ride casually around town, I was looking for a lower-priced set of brakes that would still perform well enough that I wouldn't be too disappointed after coming from the Ultegra gruppo on my other road bike. The FSA Gossamer Brake Calipers have proven a wise choice. They are lightweight and stiff for the price, and provide very ample stopping power. The black also looks svelte with my Bianchi-style moss green frame.
