The Swiss Alps, no doubt, are home to some spectacular and demanding mountain bike terrain. SwissStop's testing facility is nestled there as well. Their technicians tirelessly test and re-test brake pad compounds so you can ride with confidence knowing the best stopping power and control available is right there at your fingertips.
SwissStop Disc Brake pads are built of a proprietary compound containing ceramic, kevlar, brass, and resin. This unique mixture provides you with the quiet modulation of an organic pad, but also boasts the durability and wet condition performance of the metallic. The pads are intended for all mountain bike applications from cross country to downhill. If you're looking for the best performance in all conditions, look no further than SwissStop, regardless of which brand of brakes you ride.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought the 25 for my Formula RX brakes. I prefer the Formula brand sintered pads to these for the improved longevity, but we didn't have them in stock. These are a decent alternative. After all, they do stop my bike when I squeeze the brake trigger.
Great Replacement for Shimano Pad
Be sure to read the compatibility matrix and you will be stopping on a dime in no time.
Will these work on my Avid BB7 Mechanical road break calipers/rotors?
Yes indeed they are compatible for those brakes. You will want to select the DISC 17 option from the drop down menu!
