great in the wet
these are as good as it gets for brake pads they do wear a bit fast though

I bought these after having problems with brakes and rims on a new bike. The original brake blocks picked-up aluminium from the rims, causing lumps of aluminium and rapidly wearing rims.
Rather a long story, but these brake blocks were massively better. They solved the aluminium "pick-up" problem, and provided more effective braking than the originals.
The only disappointment was that the wet performance wasn't as good as I'd hoped. I think this is because, with the usual toe-in, the "normal" black part is doing all the work, rather than the "wet" salmon part - so in practice they behave mainly as a "normal" black block. I have now therefore changed to the single compound salmon blocks, which seem excellent in a range of conditions.

Improved braking performance on cantilever brakes. I've also used these with caliper brakes in the past and the performance is especially good with the dual compound pads

DESIGN WORKS WELL WITHOUT CLOGGING UP WITH DIRT. NOT BAD IN WET.

These pads made a noticeable difference compared to the stock Shimano pads that the misses' road bike came with.
Just waiting for them to improve her braking confidence.

I've put these on every bike I've ever owned. They quite simply have the best stopping in wet and dry. They do tend to create a lot of dirt though, especially in the wet...

Really grippy, silent and feel better quality than shimano. Spot on. Look awesome too.

These get the thumbs up over DA pads for me. Only problem is they mess the bike up a lot more in the wet.

I am afraid that these are not a carbon specific pad and we would recommend something like the LifeLine Performance Carbon Road Brake Inserts - Pack of 4 or the Swissstop Flash Pro Yellow (High Power) Pads.
