I have used and ridden the Campy Record carbon levers in the past, these SRAM's are better in nearly every aspect of a good lever. Blades are cant'ed out like your other SRAM stuff (and current Shimano) so feel good and offer better control and reach. Hoods are super comfy as other current hoods on the market, whereas the Record carbons are still sporting the older less-flat hood shape. I like the new shape head and shoulders over the old.

The blades are stiff and offer great feel and modulation. Action is smooth and finish is perfect. The only area Campy wins is that the Record levers had the QR release on the levers and so if you use Campy brake calipers (as I do) the SRAMs' don't let you open up the calipers. Not an issue for me, but may be for those who run their brakes super-tight.

For roughly 1/2 the price of records, with better ergo, slightly lighter weight, and a cleaner apperance (IMHO) there is no reason to go Campy if you want a non integrated shifter for your CX bike or SS bike.

Added bonus, they match SRAM Force levers.... and we all know road bike geeks like to match....

Well designed bag sans the rear clip. The bag is very secure and the full wrap velcro does a great job of keeping the bag from swaying under the saddle bottom. The elastic post strap is low profile, won't mar up the Thomson etching that is under so many of our rear ends, and holds tight on my 31.6 dia post. Should have zero issue holding a 27.2 post also. Really like that there is no velcro on the post strap which tends to snag bib-short legs.

I can cram, 1 std (not ultra-light) 700x18-25c tube, (2) 16 gram CO2, 1 micro inflate head, micro tool, 2 tire levers, and 2 insta-patches inside. Not much extra space beyond that for anything beyond a few wadded up dollars. An ultralight tube would allow for either a 3rd tire lever or perhaps keys.

The rear light clip is more of a urathane/silicone loop so the rear flasher (PB superflash) kinda just flaps around in the back and does not really point straight back nor does it stay still.

Overall recommend and will be buying more
