SaintGood quality pads for my Dura Ace brakeset.
Mr smithThe best blocks for your shimano brakes
Ryan LaffertyEasy 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.
ATWith R8000 calipers the stopping power is great and there's bags of modulation.
WillGood replacement cartridges as you would expect from Shimano!
IlanGreat brakes can't go wrong with Shimano
Mr blackwoodAverage Brake Pads. Not as good as the Swisstop BXPs but do the trick at an 8th of the price. Excellent price from Merlin
SimonHad 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...)
PVJust a spare set of proper pads, which is somehow not easy to find now.
SavageBrake 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 KazmiGood value brake pads. Easy to install and very durable.
Adrianthese work fine but the rubber does tend to harden after a year or so, with a reduction in stopping power.
Mr KayeGood braking in all conditions
menasheComes with the needed bolts
Mr ParentI 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 SCheap, and works super well. I have these on all my rim brake bikes. Great power, feel, and modulation, even in older calipers.
Mr DubucGood braking. Can't really notice difference between r55c3 and these though.
TomRecommend to anyone. Stick with OEM Brake Pads. Good price
SamuelConfident braking
Mr TaylorThese work well even in wet conditions
Mr KinseyGreat value, top quality Shimano product. Easy to install and replaced my worn out pads to give me assured safe stopping power.
RiftzonerUsual Shimano high quality, easy to fit, always reliable providing a great feel & progressive braking. Merlin' s great pricing only adds to the appeal.
Mr KnightGreat. Particularly pleased that the pack contained the grub screws as a couple of mine were burred
Mr DominguezGreat value, easy to change and work well.
Mr WagnerThese are always perfect replacements
Mr VinkReliable performance and cost effective.
TomBest pads I've used, good modulation and lifespan
AnthonyExcellent compound for both wet and dry
Mr FernandesWork as well as the pads that came with 105 brakes ..
sanalytisGood quality brake pad for the price!
DerekThese brake blocks work well and are not too hard like some others which wear your rims faster, cheaper to change brake blocks than rims
MarkGreat. No problems on installation. They were exactly as I hoped and expected.
NeilOnly 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 JunqueiraAlways keep them in the shed. Keeps me safe on the down hill. Only use Shimano.
Mr BeserGreat brake pads and very durable
David JohnGood quality pads which do the job perfectly well. Easy to fit once the old parts are out
BarrieI purchased these as spares but I have used them in the past. They are easy to fit and work as they should do.
TomSolid as ever. Maybe not the best all round blocks out there, but will do for me.
Mr BickleGreat value pads, perfect performance
Mr farrellyGood in all weathers, easy to fit
DieselmikaAs 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.
