I switched back to my alloy rimcarbon fairing wheel set for the Mtn. Momma century. Lots of climbs - I counted 9 with epic, switchback descents. Not once did I feel out of control braking as the Shimano pads instilled confidence in the turns.
These replaced the stock pads that came on my Specialized Allez. They fit perfectly into the stock shoe housings, but the new pads were noticeably better in both wet and dry. These were a good investment!
These things will stop you on a dime if you want! Sttong enough to ride your front wheel on a rolling stoppie!!!
Campi pads won't do that!
Excellent pads, I've only used them in dry conditions. They have excellent stopping power. The durability of these pads is also excellent. This my 2nd set.
I have never been disappointed with a Shimano Dura Ace product.
The quality control is so good , I have never experienced any problems.
So, for me, the slight extra cost for Dura Ace is well worth it, and almost always less than the other high end groups available.
I don't experiment with other chains, brake pads, cassettes or anything aftermarket as I feel Shimano makes the Dura Ace parts to work together the best possible.
The set screws are even coated with thread lock, they work as advertised and after 1000 miles have no issues.
I change my brake pads frequently. This is always a decent price and a good addition when I need a few more dollars to reach $50 for free shipping.
