Best road blocks in the wet

5

These are the best brake blocks I have found for road bikes. Excellent in the dry, on par with anything else on the market, but when it gets wet these are the best I've tried. Even with cantilever brakes these worked well

Good Break Blocks

5

Have used a couple of sets of these these on my winter bike for a few seasons and do notice a difference compared to other blocks I've tried including the original shimano blocks. Particularly beneficial on downhills in the wet. I don't think they are perfect but they are certainly better.

Decent Stopping

4

Have moved to these from stock Ultegra blocks, certainly appear to improved stopping power. Squealed on the first few descents requiring them to be used in anger but soon settled. Delivery from PBK was fine as expected. Would recommend .

best blocks ever used

5

With most technical specs I always take a pinch of salt. however- these replacement blocks for my SRAM red are just brilliant. much more feel and control than the "black" SwissStop pads that were in the originals. Have used them in the wet too - and they live up to their billing. Have already replaced on my sons bike although the originals were not worn, and recommended to a ride buddy. One of the best purchases I have made this year.

Brake upgrade

4

Fitted these to Dura-ace brakes, with standard/original blocks. I was never happy with the performance of the original: very little power, and virtually on or off. These are the first swisstop pads I've used, and the difference is like night & day. There is plenty more power, which is what I was originally aiming for, but what really impressed me as how much more modulation there is. I can really 'feel' the brakes through the levers now, and feel so much more connected to them than before. Probably actually 5 stars, but holding one back as I haven't had a chance to try them out in the wet yet!

Smooth, powerful

4

These seem to stop a lot better than the standard Shimano pads that I had on the bike. The only downside is that the retaining screw has a very small hex fitting, and is soft aluminium, so it stripped easily. I just retiffed the screws from the previous pads! Remeber, there's four in a pack!

Great Upgrade

5

The difference between these and standard Shimano blocks is massive.... Honestly have to be careful on the first ride as they are that sharp!

SwissStop FlashPro BXP Brake Blocks

5

I'm a big fan of SwissStop pads, I've been using their excellent green GHP2 pads on all 3 of my road bikes for a few years now and until recently they were the best available for alloy rims. I've been riding the new blue FlashPro BXP Brake Blocks for a week now and first impressions are that they are even better than their predecessor. The braking is perfect, so much more control than stock pads that come with most bikes. Also, as I ride with fairly expensive wheels; Campag Neutron Ultras and Fulcrum Racing 1s. I want a block that causes minimal wear to the rims breaking surfaces and these pads do this. So far, I've only used them in the dry, but I imagine that like the GHP2s they will perform superbly in the wet too. Will they last as long as the GHP2s? Only time will tell, but I expect they will last at least as long, which is twice as long as Shimano pads last me. So, although they are not the cheapest pads on the market, their longevity means that they are quite economical in the long term . But what price the confidence and assurance of great breaking? In my view, these pads are the best. I hadn't used Pro Bike Kit before this order, but their service was perfect; the correct items sent quickly with free P&P and at the best price I could find in the UK. 10/10.
