Fair enough these are pricey- but if you've shelled out for carbon rims it's already too late to turn around. The last thing you need is to go careening past your mates on your inaugural ride due to cheap-skating on blocks. I've used these throughout winter and they are surprisingly good. I haven't noticed any huge difference compared to my Ultegra blocks despite what all the various storm systems & snow flurries that the wrong end of Europe could throw at me. Not overly grippy, no locking of the wheel due to excellent modulation. Can't comment on wear rate, but at this early stage they do appear to wear on the fast side. A small price to pay for A+ performance elsewhere.
This block is excellent for a wide variety of carbon rim brands. I have used it with Shimano, Zipp and Colnago branded carbon rims wit excellent results. It's quiet and stops well and controlled. Thea wear is about average.
I was skeptical about the manufacturers claims concerning the braking improvement uisng these pads with carbon wheels. Although I never usually feel compelled to leave reviews, I can confirm that the Swiss Stop FlashPro brake blocks are an incremental step forward in braking, particlarly in the wet. It will be interesting to see how long they last on my cyclo cross bike given the current wet conditions, but it would seem it was money well spent and if they do a season I will be delighted.
