Do both halves have the same cam profile?

The two half-levers close securely as one piece in the conventional way, with a nice broad platform to stop the bruising your hand. The cunning bit is that you can open each lever sequentially, effectively halving the effort needed – not essential, but you appreciate them when you’re knackered.


From bike radar review. Seems pointless as if same profile the second one would be as stiff and thinner?
