I use these on my Zipp 303's, which I ride in Napa Valley. Steep climbs and descents. I'm getting a bit of squeaking in the rear wheel, the pads are cantered forward a bit so this surprises me. I'm going to try with no canting to see if that helps. The do seem to be wearing down quickly and the yellow compound shows up on the brake surface. They stop well however.
Recommended by Mavic and they are right! Excellent carbon rim stopping power even in the wet. I've taken this brake pad rim combo down all of the iconic climbs of the Alps, Pyrenees , and Dolomites and have never lost it whereas my training partner has hit the deck a few times. He's saved $20 per pair of pads or so but wrecked one pair of wheels and left some skin behind, I'll take Swisstop anytime!!!!
these brake pads provide excellent stopping, but leave yellow streaks on the rims
we all pay so much attention to the look of the bike, i like the little splash of yellow under the pad holders, but yes they leave yellow streaks on the schmancy carbon rims
