Mr Toman Great braking performance
Jonathan Work great on long descents in the Alps
Andrew My go to pads for aluminium rims. Far better than the Shimano equivalents. Yes the cost more but I`d rather have good, dependable braking than save a few quid.
Pete Chivers Big step up from standard fit Shimano, and still not bedded in.
Mr Spurr Got these for wet weather riding. Came highly recommended and have excellent reviews. Come as pack of 4 with fitting screws. So far really pleased.
Mr Zavidic I'm very satisfied with pads. Brakes work great
Mr Perrotta Excellent brake pads which I use on my road bike with SRAM red brakes.
Tim Excellent brake pads I have been using the SwissStops on my winter bike and now put them on my good bike.
Stephen Better braking performance than the standard brake pads
Mr Breecher Great price. Excellent braking.
Mr Bowman Simply the best pads for alloy rims
Nuno Freitas I use these pads since I have a wheel with a ceramic brake lane and this is recommended at a competitive price. they wear out faster than I expected, but they have a great braking power.
Tom Dumpulin They stop my wheels. Work flawlessly with SRAM force calipers. Better than the stock SRAM pads, slightly better than Kool Stop. Wet braking is pretty poor, I would get a softer compound for wet braking.
Stephen Great quality replacement pads. Easy to fit and work well
Nicolaj Excellent brake pads. Used on DT Swiss PR1600 wheels and they provide very smooth and controllable braking power. And plenty of it.
The chaser These are a more than a step/stop above factory shimano's
Javelgar A little pricey, but smooth braking and long lasting
Dene I`m a bit bamboozled by the range of swissstop pads available, but these have been great in wet and dry on my alloy rims.
Laurie Gallagher Best brake pads by far in my opinion. Modulation is just amazing and stopping power 2nd to none
Mel Good stopping in wet and dry. Need to be sanded now and again to remove embedded aluminium.
Mr D Good but wear a bit fast
Mr Bradshaw These are the best brake blocks I have ever used, significantly better than others I have tried in wet weather. Buy these and you won't be hankering after discs any more!
Mr Brunt Good price. Not happy with my replacement Shimano pads so tried these, very happy but only used in dry conditions so far.
Paul Some of the best brake pads I've ever used. Prefer these over the standard black for my alloy rims. These don't lead to the rim metal being found in the pads! Amazing stopping power dry and WET. Using them on my commuting bike and my TT frame. Love them!
Shayne Replaced new Dura-Ace pads. Yep, these are definitely better. And quieter!
Victor Superb stopping power on Campag Zonda alloy rims with Shimano Ultegra calipers. It was tricky to find a substitute for the excellent and now discontinued Swissstop GHP2 Green but these are the natural successors that even slightly out-perform the GHP2 . Highly recommended.
Andrew M Stops me reliably every time, without squealing even in the wet.
Mr Ellul Excellent brake pads, I swap the Shimano pads out with these whenever I get a new groupset. Low noise and good braking wet and dry.
Mr Hudson Top quality worth spending the extra for these pads
HuynhJ85 They stop much better than the factory 105 brake pads. Really impressed with it, will be buying them again when the time comes.
Moonigan Superb pads but quite soft.
Nicco Better than standard shimano rubber but not blowing me away. Maybe this is because I have ceramic coated alloys and while the blues were recommended the greens (now hard to get) are better for the purpose.
Hendrix As good or better than the Sram branded swisstop pads that came stock in my Sram force calipers. I'll go with these again when it's time for replacements.
Dack Excellent stopping power, good in all conditions, expensive compared to other brands but you get what you pay for, "assured, reliable stopping performance"
Ernesto Replaced standard Shimano with these and the improvement is huge. Haven`t tried in the rain yet but I have little doubt they'll be fine.
Mr A Russell Instant improvement on standard shimano pads. Good feel and not grabby but progressive performance. Haven`t tried in wet yet.
YOUNG Great braking in dry conditions. Wet brake tracks still still lose some power. No pad compound can overcome that though.
Mr Taylor-Smith Arrived promptly. Easy to fit - never changed brake blocks before! Recommended to buy because of performance in wet. Marked improvement over previous (worn) blocks of unspecified make. Happy with purchase.
David Green A clear step up from the standard Ultegra pads. Excellent stopping power, although the pads did give a 'scream' towards the bottom of a 10Km+ descent, presumably due to heat in the rims. I do believe it was the rims and not the pads as I've used the same pads on different wheels without the same effect, on the same descent. Recommended.
Jenkins Don't use anything else, superior in the wet and dry, and you will notice it a lot more in the wet. Tried this new compound, too early to say regarding rim wear, but performance still right up there.
Jako Great brake blocks. Giving you that added bit of confidence when braking.
Mike H Work really well, makes a change being able to stop in the wet. Nice soft compound but wear rate is ok that's why these are my second set
Mr Simpson Brilliant. Now I know how well my Duarace brakes can really stop especially at higher speeds. No fade at all.
Mr Hammer Nice, progressive 'feel' when braking. Minimal residue on rims. Hard to know iif these are the 'best' pads out there...but they ARE very good!
Mr Avery Replaced my stock standard pads with these. Thought they were a bit average at first and then they bedded in. Very nice.
Mr Naisbitt After a few scary moments in the wet with Shimano pads decided to give these a go. Much better, no sqealing and less residue, wet or dry.
Mr Malyn These brake pads are immense! I went from stock Shimano 105 pads to these for a sportive as the stock pads were giving me really bad feedback on a tricky descent. Therefore I went for an upgrade and I only wish I had done it sooner. The modulation is so much better and they bite the rim brilliantly. As the weather has been pretty good of late, they have not had a proper test in the wet yet. However, judging by the difference in dry performance, I'm expecting as much improvement in the wet.
Mr Tremblay My new reference. They don't catch debris as Shimano pads do. Outstanding braking power and they are almost quiet. Only downside...they are blue !
Mr Stewart Very impressed with Merlin Cycles. Wanted to replace my worn out Flash pro greens with these BXP pads. ordered after lunch and they arrived next morning. Were originally out of stock but got a "back in stock" reply very quickly as well. As for the pads, they are very good. In the dry I am not sure they are any better than the greens but in the wet they certainly are. If they last as long as the greens I will be well chuffed.
Mr Cleary Great stopping power and silent in wet or dry conditions
Mat B Great product - massive improvement over standard Shimano blocks. They wear faster but I'd rather replace brake blocks than rims! Especially good in the wet. Highly recommended.
Andy Tiplady Better all round than the shimano inserts they replaced, especially in the adverse weather our lovely British climate has given us this winter!
Mr Fenton Service great. Arrived as promised. Have used these excellent pads for some time now. Found them to be very good in wet. Been a godsend over the past couple of months. Rick
