Unanswered Question

Will these fit on Colnago X Brake 3s on the Strada SL 105? Tks.


No Problems Stopping

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I didn't realize how dicey it was getting coming down Guardsman Pass until I got these. I didn't do a lot of riding last year, so my old brake pads had gotten hard and slippery. I popped these guys on, and I am glad to have the extra stopping power.

So far this summer they have been working great. I'm using them with some Mavic Aluminum rims. I'll be picking these up again when I need new pads for this bike.


Exceeded expectations.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Excellent modulation and feel. Leaves zero brake residue on Ksyrium SSL wheel-set.Have about 600 miles in them and am still very impressed.


Great brakes

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I didn't know anything about these breaks other than they had a good price and fit shimano breaks. They work really great though and would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of brakepads for their shimano brakes.

Will these pads fit my Tektro cantilever brakes?

No. These are for caliper brakes, not cantilever.


Better feel. Shorter stops.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have ridden thousands of miles with these pads and also stock Shimano pads on alloy wheels. These are noticeably grippier. Stops are shorter and modulation of braking force has better feel and wider range. My rides are urban with lots of traffic, stop lights, and stop signs. I use my brakes pretty heavily. Wear is similar to Shimano.

Better pads mean much better braking. Like better tires, these are an inexpensive performance upgrade that deliver a lot for the $ spent.

Installation is a snap. I had mine installed in under 5min. When my last pair of Shimanos go, I'm replacing them with these.


Work great!

    Brakes just slow you down, and these do the job well.

    Would these pads fit FSA energy brakes?

    Would these pads fit FSA energy brakes?

    Best Answer

    FSA calipers take Shimano type replacement pads. These will work well.


    Work great for my climate/riding style

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I have used these brake pads exclusively on my sram red brakes. I pretty much get 1 season, ~ 3,500 miles out of each set of pads. They are easy to swap out.

    I tend to be a maintenance freak with my bike and keep things very clean and well lubed. About once a month I clean the brake pads with rubbing alcohol and make sure there are no pieces of metal embedded in the pads. About halfway through the season I will rotate the front pads to the rear, and rear pads to the front to get more life out of them.

    Most of my rides involve long climbs (2-3 hours up) and then turn around and come down. I also ride in a dry, high desert climate and only ride in rainy conditions in the event I am stuck out in a passing shower. I feel these brake pads modulate well and do their job - if there is something that does a better job out there, I have not used it yet.
