    Slow your carbon roll.

    Going fast is only fun if you can stop when you need to, so good brake pads are indispensable if you want to push the pace. Carbon rims can complicate the equation a little bit, but the SwissStop FlashPro Black Prince Brake Pads make life simple and safe.

    Designed specifically for carbon rims, the Black Prince rubber compound provides excellent grip and modulation that'll make your braking feel just as strong as it does on aluminum rims. The FlashPro has deep grooves and a pronounced front edge to squeegee away water for all-weather grip, and is designed to be compatible with Shimano and SRAM calipers. The pads are deeper, too, which allows for more wear and a correspondingly longer life.

    Good Upgrade

      Since my carbon wheels are well out of warranty, I've opted for the Black Prince. Having the improved compound for multiple conditions and an alloy rim modulation makes these a great choice. Easy to install and can't wait to use in wet conditions.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you are out of the warranty period on your wheels switch over to these ASAP! I ride the all of the canyons around my home and trust these pads without a doubt. Little Cottonwood canyon as an average grade of 9.2 percent and i ride it almost weekly and these pads have held up great. I do only weigh 150 pounds and i am a confident descender though.

      Don't hesitate with these. they are great.

      The Right Pads

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Yeah, just to confirm what has been said. Only run the pads that the rim manufacturer recommends. If you are running non recommended pads, say goodbye to your warranty. In some instances using a pad like these on the wrong rim will ruin your wheels.

      With that said, these work really well, I had a little bit of noise at first so I just toed them in more aggressively than I originally had and they ran quiet from then on. Lifespan is solid too.

      Best pads

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Most wheel manufacturers want you to use their pads otherwise you void the warranty. But if you're out of the warranty period, get these pads. Super grip, no noise, long lasting.

      As expected from SwissStop

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Just installed these and have had 2 rides with my Zipp's. Toed them in as instructed and aside from some break in squeal, they are working as expected. I have yet to ride them on a long down hill yet but so far so good. I will have to report back later after some more miles.

      Best i have found

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      For just carbon brake surfaces these are unmatched so far even in wet conditions. Each carbon surface is different but these are very solid. In fact i like the braking with these on carbon over a normal alloy braking surface with alloy pads.

      Worth every penny

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you have carbon fiber wheels and have been using the Swisstop yellow king pads you will want to strongly consider the Black Prince. They appear to be a bit softer and braking is significantly improved. They will squeal when new unless you make sure to have some toe-in as recommended. Got caught in the rain a few times and while stopping distance did increase, pulsing the brakes to dry the tracks occasionally while riding improved stopping performance when needed. Still prefer allow wheels in the wet but sometimes "rain happens" and the carbon fiber wheels are my preferred. Using second generation SRAM Rival group.

      picture shows 4 pads. do you get all 4 pads in a set for $50?

      Unanswered Question

      Do these pads work on aluminum rims, and are there four pads in one order?

      Just to confirm, are these supposed to work on aluminum rims? Only the "Elite" version are for carbon rims only, correct?

      Hi Kevin, they can be used on alloy rims, however if you are switching back and forth between aluminum and carbon, you will want to inspect the pads and remove the metal burs that they gather with aluminum use.

      If you are just looking for a good aluminum pad, there are better and cheaper options from Swissstop.
