I am wondering whether Campagnolo Delta brakes work with for example non C Record or Dura Ace levers.

Thank you.

From what I've read, they don't work with ANY levers :lol:
(is it very flat where you live?)

... but if you have already fallen for their looks, it seems you can use other levers with them:

"We are using them with a set of Daytona (now Centaur) Ergo levers, since we didn't want to ditch Ergo shifting to get these brakes . ."

:roll:

They work with any lever but it is best to use them with a lever that has a quick release function (easier removal of wheels).

Had them working fine with newer ergos. Not the sharpest brakes but seemed good enough for thr road.

set 'em up with more of a gap than you think is right. as i understand it, their leverage increases as does their travel.

that said, mine have yet to be mounted...so i repeat what i've been told with no actual experience to back it up.
