Lightweight Brake pads

The new Lightweight brake pads are specially formulated for improved brake performance in combination with carbon fiber rims. They offer drastically improved modulation.
The pads are supplied by the specialists at SWISSSTOP. They are the result of extensive tests in the lab and on the road. Contrary to ordinary pads for carbon rims, our pads do not consist of cork, but of high-performance rubber. This completely new material easily surpassed the results of ordinary cork pads in all tests. Greatest advantages were found with regard to brake modulation, wear, and performance in wet conditions.
During the development process our focus had been

* maximum brake power (wet and dry)
* perfect modulation
* no brake squeal
* least possible wear
* good performance on aluminum brake tracks as well

The latter enables the rider to switch between different wheelsets without having to swap brake pads, as well. While the Lightweight brake pads have been developed with carbon rims in mind and will develop their full brake power only in conjunction with carbon rims, they by far exceed regular cork pads on aluminum rims.
Modulation has been greatly improved over cork pads. Many riders have had to become used to the “all-or-nothing” feel of such brake pads. Not so with the new Lightweight rubber-compound!
The new Lightweight pads are available for both Shimano and Campagnolo pad holders.
