Details:  The Master Pro was Modolo’s top-of-the-line brake model. The calipers and levers were hard anodized in a bronze color and the caliper pivot bolts were made of titanium.
The washer between the break caliper were "flashed" with 24k gold in order to protect them from oxidation.

Modolo Master Pro brakes were raced by both Hinault and LeMond in the 1980s.
Brand Information(click to expand)
Business starts in 1952 by Adamo Modolo in Santa Lucia di Piave, Italy with the production of steel brake levers. After becoming well known for bicycle brakes and brake levers their focus in the 1990s switched over to bars and stems and later again to wheel sets. Modolo's philosophy is to combine italian flair with innovative development in bicycle components.
