Over the last year we have been focused on improving the performance and longevity of braking on the 100% carbon braking surface of our road rims. Part of this effort has been to develop a new brake pad compound that will optimally manage heat, minimize abrasion, modulate, and perform in wet conditions with our rims. This new brake pad will be supplied with all wheel sets and also online. Warning: when using Non-Locking brake holders, DO NOT apply the brakes while simultaneously rotating the wheel backwards. Failure to do so may result in ejection of the brake pad resulting in serious harm, accident, bodily injury or death.
