I had someone at work look at my bike and asked what the wings are for on brake cartridges. The brakes are DA7403. What the reason?

makes it easier to get the wheel in between the calipers... actually, they are for better aerodynamics; they have been proven to be 0.000000000000000000001% faster than plain pad holders.

They are for your thumbs. They make centering and adjusting easier.
