FWE MTB V-Brake Cartridge Inserts

These pads feature an advanced alloy braking compound. This is an outstanding compound that gives excellent performance on all alloy rims, giving market leading performance in both dry/wet conditions. This compound is universally considered to provide ideal all round performance. Allowing users to brake with the assertiveness that only comes from knowing you're riding the best.

Hard compound

PostedMarch 3, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Whilst these brake pads are easy to fit, the compound is on the hard side and brake response is consequently not superb. They take a while to 'wear in', but I find them quite satisfactory on my touring bike.

I was desperate

PostedAugust 1, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality
I had bought the Evans own brand before, how diferent could they be? They are. they wear out a lot quicker than Shimano and as |i use these for my commute everyday they wear out super fast unlkike Shimano's. I was desperate and they didn't have the Shimano's in stock so went for these - only a few weeks old and already down to buy new one's not good.
