You don’t think about a product like the Swiss Stop carbon brake pads until it’s too late. We’ve all been there, flying down a hill, giving the brakes a light touch only to hear that dreaded sliding sound. It’s at that moment you think, mmmm I need new brake pads.
And if you ride on carbon rims many brake pads become more like speed regulators, designed to slow you down, not stop in a hurry.
So if you’ve wondered if the specific carbon brakes are worth the extra cash, the answer is yes.
The carbon specific brakes from Swiss stop are more expensive, but the performance in both wet and dry conditions is unrivalled.
You may mistakenly believe that all brake pads are created equally, well nothing could be further from the truth. Think about what you want from a brake pad, you want them to have superior grip, and be long lasting. The Swiss Stop carbon Brake pads are both of these things.
And one other advantage exists, normally brake pads are the least sexy addition to your bike. But the yellow Swiss Stop brake pads don’t just stop you, they’ll stop traffic as people try and get a look at them.
