Saint Good quality pads for my Dura Ace brakeset.
Mr smith The best blocks for your shimano brakes
Ryan Lafferty Easy to swap out, grippy, and seem pretty durable after 300 miles! I haven’t ridden them in the wet, but they provide consistent, predictable braking.
AT With R8000 calipers the stopping power is great and there's bags of modulation.
Will Good replacement cartridges as you would expect from Shimano!
Ilan Great brakes can't go wrong with Shimano
Mr blackwood Average Brake Pads. Not as good as the Swisstop BXPs but do the trick at an 8th of the price. Excellent price from Merlin
Simon Had tried some Swisstop on my commuter bike but they perished within a month of gritty weather so come back to these (& will stick with them from here on out...)
PV Just a spare set of proper pads, which is somehow not easy to find now.
Savage Brake blocks arrived in non retail packaging as a set of four (two pairs) of brake blocks. Purchasing this way makes them a much more reasonable price. Easy to fit and work as expected; a nice easy way to service brakes.
Mr Kazmi Good value brake pads. Easy to install and very durable.
Adrian these work fine but the rubber does tend to harden after a year or so, with a reduction in stopping power.
Mr Kaye Good braking in all conditions
menashe Comes with the needed bolts
Mr Parent I do basic maintenance on my friends bikes , gotta have these on hand all the time . No jobber brake pads , too important component. Shimano is the best
Brian S Cheap, and works super well. I have these on all my rim brake bikes. Great power, feel, and modulation, even in older calipers.
Mr Dubuc Good braking. Can't really notice difference between r55c3 and these though.
Tom Recommend to anyone. Stick with OEM Brake Pads. Good price
Samuel Confident braking
Mr Taylor These work well even in wet conditions
Mr Kinsey Great value, top quality Shimano product. Easy to install and replaced my worn out pads to give me assured safe stopping power.
Riftzoner Usual Shimano high quality, easy to fit, always reliable providing a great feel & progressive braking. Merlin' s great pricing only adds to the appeal.
Mr Knight Great. Particularly pleased that the pack contained the grub screws as a couple of mine were burred
Mr Dominguez Great value, easy to change and work well.
Mr Wagner These are always perfect replacements
Mr Vink Reliable performance and cost effective.
Tom Best pads I've used, good modulation and lifespan
Anthony Excellent compound for both wet and dry
Mr Fernandes Work as well as the pads that came with 105 brakes ..
sanalytis Good quality brake pad for the price!
Derek These brake blocks work well and are not too hard like some others which wear your rims faster, cheaper to change brake blocks than rims
Mark Great. No problems on installation. They were exactly as I hoped and expected.
Neil Only had minimal use of these pads due to weather, I'm using them on TRP CX9 brakes and they fit the shoes well and are working as expected. Would buy these again.
Mr Junqueira Always keep them in the shed. Keeps me safe on the down hill. Only use Shimano.
Mr Beser Great brake pads and very durable
David John Good quality pads which do the job perfectly well. Easy to fit once the old parts are out
Barrie I purchased these as spares but I have used them in the past. They are easy to fit and work as they should do.
Tom Solid as ever. Maybe not the best all round blocks out there, but will do for me.
Mr Bickle Great value pads, perfect performance
Mr farrelly Good in all weathers, easy to fit
Dieselmika As I find with all Shimano products, these are solid, reliable and decent value. The braking performance is decent in the wet and dry and they're a doddle to fit.
