These blocks are designed for carbon rims in any weather conditions. What's to say ... I brake, I stop! With no squeak or squeal. Love them!
Ah what a difference! I have been using "cheap" brake pads the last couple of years on a bike/wheels combination deserving of far better.
The advantage of these pads is already clear after a week. They're better in the wet--and don't wear down at 10x rate in the wet--and they are so much quieter. I hear "everything" on my bike, and little noises make me start to look for what might be wrong... so this means one less noise and I can enjoy my super quiet brakes.
They also seem to leave less mess on the rims, and pick up less crud that scratches the rims.
I know yellow might not match every bike, but the upside is these stand out and say "I have great brake pads!"
These cost a lot, but I can see already that while I could have bought three sets of cheaper pads for the same money, I am pretty sure these are going to outlast the "three sets" of what I have been using.
i use these for my carbon zipp wheels, and the breaking performance is far superior to the regular pads i use with my training wheels. they work best when properly aligned on the wheel, and you can even use them with your regular aluminum breaking surface wheels. they seem a bit expensive though...
I have these pads which i use for my carbon zipp race wheels, and then for training, i switch back to my training wheels and put on the regular pads the difference in braking performance is very noticeable, as the swiss stop have super breaking performance. i know you can run these with aluminum breaking surface as well, but they seem pretty expensive, so i didn't want to wear them out.
Ran these against my Zipp carbon rims and loved them, until I tried Zipp Tangentes, which are a cork composite. 'Til then, I would've rated Yellow kings 5 star.
The Yellow Kings, I realized, left uneven melt residue on the rims (apparently not as bad as many pads, but far worse than the cork Zipps) that looked nasty and, far more importantly, caused pulsing and degraded performance.
Don't know how much of the Zipp pads' advantage would transfer if used with non-Zipp rims, and the Zipps are even more expensive than Yellow Kings. But braking is no place to pinch pennies.
no more melted pads :) and they work very well in the rain. I wish they came in a different colour. But other than that, these are fantastic brake pads.
The best available brake pads for carbon rims. Makes you decent just fine no melted brakes or broken rims. They are also very reliable in wet condition.
