The pad material is crucial for braking power and progressivity. It is a leading part into braking performance as it is directly related to the temperature the rim will have to deal while braking.

From a mechanical point of view, it has to be smooth enough to keep the rim from unwanted wear, and hard enough to last long. It is important to use the right pad for safety. This compound has been designed and tested for maximizing braking performances and minimizing rim temperature. It is the best pad so far for dry and wet conditions.
