OK but not outstanding on Carbon

Posted13 May 2015
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Expensive
I bought these to replace the Enve pads I already had. The Enve's braking was terrible in the wet but I had a wet race coming up but wanted to use them. I have to say that these were a little better than the Enve pads but not by a lot. It still had that heart stopping moment of no braking until the surface water had cleared. They also leave yellow marks on your wheels. So overall not as impressive as their standard pads for alloy wheels which are excellent.

Better than expected

Posted11 April 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: they work
Cons: Expensive, leave residue
After reading some good reviews about swissstop yellow, I decided to give them a go, I got Evans to do a price match and paid about £29. I have a pair of Carbon 50mm rim wheels , which i had given up on because the braking was so poor and would squeal something rotten with the cork type pads that i had. But I like the way the wheels look and there very light, So as a last resort i decided to give the swissstop yellow a gamble, And boy am i glad i did, I toed them in a little bit when fitting them, and then went out on a 45 miler, the brakes were as good as any rubber on alloy rim I've used . I have not tried them in wet conditions yet, I did find that they left a little bit of yellow residue on my rims but consider this a small detail and it cleans off easy
