There are dual-compound pads. The item package has dimensions of 17.78 L X 10.414 W X 1.777 H. The product is a vehicle brake pad. The package weight is 0.050 pounds. The country of origin is the United States.
👤The pads are built as solid as their dual compound siblings, but better suited for black BMX wheels. It's decent for street/traffic stopping power. They feather and grip well if adjusted with a slight toe-in. I recommend removing the shine on the rubber before installing. They should last quite a while if you check them for debris every now and then. The dual compound versions are better suited for chromed rim surfaces.
👤There are new school brake pads in the package. The power on my bike was noticeably improved by the work they did.
👤The pads are easy to install. They stopped the squeaking from the stock pads.
👤It's perfect for what I'm looking for. I have pads that stop more aggressively but they have the advantage of stopping well and being able to feather the brakes. I haven't tried every pad on the market but I'm very happy with these.
👤These are the best pads I have ever used. They are also made in the USA.
👤You can get the best brake pads for BMX.
👤I used them for my new bike. Very disappointed.
It is possible to make charming decorative statements for any backyard, lawn or garden with the help of the BLKWHT burlap garden flags. It is made of high-quality nitrile rubber, wear-resistant, and does not hurt the rim, so that you can say goodbye to the harsh noise, and every time you brake is so comfortable. If there is a sound after installation, please adjust the installation position. The "LIMIT" word is a reminder to replace the brake pads to prevent accidents. The raised rubber text won't be washed away by rain and soil. The long service life is mentioned. The brake pad can be used 8000-10000 times when the speed is 12.5KM/H. The curved design fits the radian of the tire better. The drain boxes on the brake pads help stop the bike's power in the worst weather conditions and the grooves help drain water and indicate wear. It's comparable with all of the V-shaped systems. It's compatible with most mountain bikes. There are 3 pairs of 70mm pads in the set. It is more convenient to have left and right distinguishing signs.
👤I care about what I put on my bikes. I'm happy with the feel of the pads. Smooth, firm, and quiet. The low quality finish on the conical washers added resistance to slipping, despite the fact that the machining finish is not beautiful. This is not an issue once they're installed. There is a pro-install tip. The trailing end of the pads should be positioned a bit away from the rim using a rubber band or folded business card. The "toe-in" technique helps to smooth and quiet break. If you need to replace your pads, make sure to replace the brake cables as well. Couple of bucks on Amazon. There is a There are three sets of pads, one set more than you need for a bike. Get enough pads for 3 bikes by buying 2 sets.
👤I got these for my cyclocross bike that I was fixing up last winter to use as a secondary bike and to try off-road riding this fall and winter. During the spring and summer I rode on the road for 15-20 miles per ride, and this fall I have been doing gravel riding for an hour or two each week. They wore down a bit over the summer, but held up well. The performance was okay initially, but it decreased as they wore. They did not last long after I stopped riding off the road. The spare set included in the package only lasted a couple of weeks after the back set wore out. They had a decent amount of material left on them, but both the front and rear set wore down in a matter of minutes. I'm not sure if they were meant for this type of use, but I am surprised how quickly they wore out. Without the cross race, they wouldn't have been usable. There is a If you want to ride light road, rail trails, or similar types of riding, I think these will work just fine, but they'll probably wear out faster than name brands, and the braking isn't as good as higher quality pads. I can't recommend them if you want to ride more competitively, or if you need to rely on the brakes a lot. I don't fault them for not holding up in how I used them, but at most can only give them 3 stars as a cheap set of brakes with "just okay" performance at their best.
👤I bought this for my son's mountain bike because I thought it would be a nice upgrade from the cheap ones. I was not happy with the performance of the brake pads. I got pink pads because I ordered red. My son pointed out that it looks nothing like the pictures. The pads quality looked okay at first, but man took 30 minutes to install and adjust all of them. We went for a bike ride and came back. There was pink dust on the bike rim. That was only 2 miles and wore out? I should have listened to the reviews about how to wear out quickly. I went to a local bike shop and bought Clark's brake pads for his bike, which was a day difference. Buy better quality if you spend that extra money.
The package is 1.016 cm long. The package width is 8.128 cm. The package is 13.97 cm high. The vehicle BRAKE PAD is a product.
👤If you want to get the salmon Continentals, you have to select them below Dura-Ace salmon. The Continental shape is the same as shown in the middle gray Continental selection, but you must select Continental in the drop down to avoid being shipped the wrong part. The salmon brakes are perfect for vintage bikes. Use force but don't over use it. You could break the arm if you were gentle. A crescent works for this. Disk brakes are better in the rain than normal brake pads, but Braking is better in the rain. There is an alternative to the threaded salmon Kool Stop pads. The Continentals need to bend the arm to toe-in, but Eagle Claw 2 doesn't.
👤After hearing great things about the salmon kool stop pad, I decided to give it a try, even though I was ready to give up and switch to a disc brake setup for road racing. I mounted the pads on my bike right before the race, so I could clean the wet rim with the initial pressure, and I followed online instructions to center the pads so they were bowed. I was happy to stick with these for racing and all-condition riding in the future because I had no trouble following descending lines of strong disc-brake equipped riders.
👤I'm not sure if the Shinanos design is helping me stop faster than the real ones, because the ridges on these are different. There seems to be an increase in performance when wet. They work as well as the Shimanos, but are cheaper, and seem to have some great ratings. I've had them on for a season now with no noticeable wear. They install the same as any other brake pads, and have no special equipment needed to get them aligned correctly. They have a design that would make it easier to stop. Are they better than the Shimanos? It is likely for certain conditions. You won't regret it if you get them.
👤I made them work because they are not an ideal fit for superbe pads. I think I could shave the rubber down and make it work, but it wasn't a big deal to me. The good news is that they don't interfere with my frame for long. They work better than the dry rotted pads they replaced. The salmon continental are the full threaded/mounted pad and not just the insert, as I expected, and I attached a photo of that.
👤There were issues with these pads. I had to adjust my brakes constantly. I would think I had enough room for the pads to fit, but then I would have to rub them on the rim. I told them to forget about it and go back to their original pads. There is a Pads were lost in the mail. It took 4 weeks to get them. The seller sent a second set out after I contacted them. Customer service is great. The second set showed up before the first and the seller sent the original pair back to the post office.
The vehicle BRAKE PAD is a product. The package is 7.874 cm long. The package width is 16.002 cm. The package is 1.27 cm high. The vehicle BRAKE PAD is a product.
👤The listing says that these are good for all weather. I drove my bike in the rain and they didn't work very well. They worked well after the rain stopped.
👤It was exactly what I needed. It was a good deal and arrived on time.
👤The stop has superior stopping power. I love them. There is a Tech tip... I shave off or sand the pads to make sure they sit flush.
👤I needed to replace the brake pads on my car because it had a mixture of older and plain pads. They are working like the Champs they are after getting them dialed in.
👤These look nice and wipe the rim. They don't stop as well as other pads I've tried. I put my pads back on.
👤The brakes hold my bmx well. So good and tight. I almost fell off.
👤They work great on my Skyway Tuff mag wheelset and should have been purchased a long time ago. If you use a lot of heartbreaking, they might wear you out fast.
👤They weren't the best. At least not for black wheels. I tried many kinds. Only clear pads work.
The full length post makes adjustments possible. The off center post design provides even wear for a long time. The water grooves are below the post for optimal water removal. There is a plow tip for rain and mud removal.
👤I bought and installed the brakes. I'll be comparing them with the pads from XLCs. It's as advertised. I ordered 2 pairs. There is a They were easy to install. There is a You will get good power out of these if you get the toe angle and plane adjustment right. I installed them before I wrote this review. The stopping power is strong after I went back and forth in the driveway. Like a strong V-Brake. There is a They're stronger than the XLCs. Sorry. I think I'll be moving to Kool Stop. I'll break them in and give you an update soon, since I haven't taken the bike out to the trails yet. 5 stars until a problem arises.
👤Before the days of disks and linear pull brakes, mountain bikes had cantilever brakes. The plain black compound was the first shoe I used. They are great. The canti shoes are easy to install, and the fin on the back helps set the toe-in for the contact surface. I tried the dual compound with black and salmon, which was recommended by my LBS. The installation was easy and they stopped. I don't know how much the salmon compound will make a difference when I get caught on a muddy ride, because I haven't used them yet. I decided to throw on new shoes and clean the rim because I was about to upgrade to linear pull brakes on this bike, but I decided to clean the rim and throw on new shoes. The bike is more for trail riding and touring, and the stops are good. I would go linear pull with the shoes on the brakes.
👤The world's worst set of brake pads came with the caliper brake I bought for my cruiser. I have never had a bad set of brake pads. The pads made a huge difference. A set of good brake pads can make a big difference. There is a I bought black ones and chrome ones, for what they are worth.
👤The old MAFAC Racer centerpull brakes have a tendency to make noise. I wanted to keep the classic look with authentic brake pad replacements, but all the brands I tried were terrible. The answer was these Eagle Claw 2 pads. If I'm not careful, they grab the rim so firmly that I go into a skid. The pads are great.
👤The old dried-out pads on the 1984 Schwinn Le Tour Luxe were replaced with 2 pairs of these. Most old 10-speeds would work with these. I'm a heavy rider. The bike was a death trap and I worried about it running away on steep downhills. The bike was safe to ride with better braking. I would have crashed if I hadn't used these. They work in the wet and are easy to install. Easy 5 stars.
👤I have replaced the first set of bike brakes. The asymmetrical design makes me a little nervous because they will stay straight under hard braking. They fit as intended on a hybrid bike, but that may change as they wear in. They were reasonably priced and available so that influenced my decision.
55mm x 19mm/2.17" x 0.75" is the per piece size. The country of origin is the United States. The package is 1 inches in height. The package is 1 inches in length. The package width is 1 Inches.
👤I was at Race Wars in my S2000 with at least 100 grand under the hood. My bois like the stupid graphics of the black paint. I was going to race against this busted VW car with an ADD stoner genius dude, but I realized that my brakes were shot. How can I dominate Race Wars if I can't slow the Hawnda down after a 10 second pass? I didn't have time to travel to Japan. I zip tied the pads off the bike and put them on the S2000 after I popped the pads off. Junior hit the NAWS too soon when he was lined up with the car. I walked him to his car after hitting mine. The moment of truth arrived and I hit the middle pedal, but I had to stop first. The car stopped in 30 feet. These pads are great. The ADD dude took the car to the car wash and ended up getting shot in a drive by in front of Riddick's house, so I never did get the car, but my Hawnda stops so good. I crashed the Townie because I forgot to have the brakes on it. I hope I'll be healed up in time for F9.
👤These pads are great and won't bother you. If you adjust them correctly to toe in, they are nearly silent and offer a near disc brake like stopping power. There is a video review for both squeaking neutral and non squeaking toe. I think you will like these pads, I am very happy with them. I don't mind that the red looks a little more vibrant online than it does in person.
👤These things completely change the brake performance on V-brake bikes, almost to the point of being as good as disc brakes. There is a They perform better than stock v-brake pads in wet conditions, and they seem to eliminate all the noise and squeaking that is associated with rim brakes. There is a The toe's on these pads are very sharp, which means that if you get mud or water on your rim, the pad's edge will scraper it off in one wheel rotation, so the rim's surface will be clean and free of debris. There is a If you have a V-brake/rim-brake bike but don't have the money to upgrade to disc brakes, these are for you. These are the best brakes to bridge the gap between V-brakes and discs. These are a better value than a mechanical disc set-up. Most of the time you will need a new wheelset, so a rim-brake to disc conversion can be costly. The cost of converting to disc brakes makes mechanical discs irrelevant. If your bike is a V-brake bike, you can either convert it to a full conversion or use the Kool stop pads. If you have a V brake bike and operate on a tight budget, these things are your new best friend.
👤Excellent upgrade to a 52 cm long haul truck. The LHT has 26 wheels. I bought these pads because I was tired of having to stop my bike with my brake hoods tight. The brakes are more responsive. It is obvious that the Kool-Stops don't work because of the tiny pads. If you have a larger LHT with 700c wheels, you'll probably need different pads to fit it. The pads are not as deep as the original ones so you will need to move the triangular metal brackets up the brake cable. If you're adjusting the LHT brakes for the first time, the stirrup's screw won't turn because it's not round. Hold it steady and turn the nut on the other side with a wrench to release the brake cable. When you re-tighten the stirrup, you may want to use an extra set of hands or vice grips.
The package is 1.3 cm long. The package width is 8.2 cm. The package is 13 cm high. The vehicle BRAKE PAD is a product.
👤These are the best! These pads are coupled with my Speed Dial 7's and give fantastic stopping power in any weather condition. After my last tune up, the bike shop replaced my worn down Kool Stops with another brand and the performance dropped immediately. Never using another brand again. There is a The package has replacement pins and pads. It's highly recommended to upgrade for the best bang for the buck.
👤I put these on the v-brakes of my LHT, which sees daily commute service. The best brake pads I've ever had on a bike are the ones that minimize the loud, sometimes embarrassing squeal bike brakes can make when it's raining or not. The leading edge of the brake pad is designed to push away water, dirt, and grim that may be in the rim when it rains. There is a These pads are the best I've found, they're short of disc brakes, which have their own issues, and would mean I'd need to get a new bike frame anyway. There is a I'm glad they're on Prime now because I couldn't make it to the LBS.
👤I have these on my family's bikes. Even in wet and sloppy conditions, these pads are reliable, even for my wife and I. When putting them on your bike, pay attention to the mounting direction, the longer side goes forward to plane away the wet rim before the stopping surface engages. They last on par with other high end pads and it's easy to swap them out of the boot with a set of needle nose pliers. Good design and good value.
👤The pads are just as good or better than the original ones. The installation tip is to remove the whole V-brake from the pivot bolt. Before you begin, make sure you have a half inch or so spare because you will probably have to slacken your brake cable with the new thicker pads. It's important to have a large pair of channel-lock pliers to squeeze the pads a little so the retaining pin slot lines up with the holes.
👤Measure the length of your pad holder to make sure you get the correct length. I use the V brakes on my Cannondale with different lengths, and I use the KoolStop inserts on my Specialized road bike. They stop well when wet.
👤I've had the same experience several times with the V-brake pads. The issue is completely solved with the switch to the red pads. Excellent product and recommended!
👤I installed these on my bike, and they are good. I almost launched myself over the handlebars after I installed these pads. I was stupid to wait too long to replace my pads. The feature of these brake pads is that they have an angle tip. When the pads are aligned correctly, the rear tip can make light contact with the tire before the rest of the pad can get wet. It works well, but it takes a bit of extra work to get the right alignment. It is worth the extra few minutes if you don't.
Threaded, salmon kool stop shoes. The V-Type cartridge has replaceable compound pads. For all threaded post brake systems. Any rim angle is automatically aligned. And has a height washer. There are dual-compound pads.
👤I don't write reviews immediately after using a product, but these pads are amazing. Gave my bmx a new lease on life. I don't have to second guess it. They are already amazing and aren't even broken in. There is a I agree with you but I didn't experience this when I bought the packaging. They're not the first pads I've replaced. After bombing down a hill, I can stop on a dime. Get yourself some. I will get 2 more sets for my other bikes when their pads wear out. I've never been so excited to wear out brake pads.
👤There are only two brands of brake pads. I have been replacing the mountain pads on my bike about once every nine months for the last eight years. I would have to realign the KSMP's after a day or so to correct the toe-in. The KSMP's worked well after the initial fiddling. I was surprised that the brake pad holders I got could work better than the ones I had been using. The pads just aligned perfectly on my rims, maybe a bit narrower than the KSMP's. No toe-in adjustment is required. The best part is that in a few months when the pads are getting thin, I just have to pull the cotter pins, pull out the rubber and slide a new set of pads into the holders. Done! I'm ordering a set of replacement inserts now so they'll be in my toolkit when the time is right.
👤I don't know how these will hold up. The 700c road bike I bought was trash. I upgraded to Hotop 70mm brakes. I was able to stop my bike. These are pretty sweet! I cleaned my rim with rubbing alcohol and then put a pair on my front wheel and went for a quick test on the sidewalk. I got the back wheel off the ground without much effort. These are better than Hotop pads. I will buy another pair after using these for a while. There is a The only bad thing is that I may have not set the angle of the pad correctly. The quality of my cheap bike, slop in the wheel, and possibly head tube was noticed by me. I hope I can use these pads a lot.
👤I've used these and the other v-brake pads. The difference between them is that they don't feel as firm. They're bigger. I prefer the other type.
👤They were used to replace stock worn out pads. There were no problems with geometry. Bike repair shops charge for the installation because it takes a while to position them correctly. It might be a good idea to have them do it. My assembly might be autosuggestion. The stock brakes are smooth, but no squeaking, but I feel the braking action is better. You can stop all the way to the end. Rain doesn't affect efficiency. They look very cool. Definitely recommended.
👤New brakes! I had old, worn out ones that barely stopped my bike. If I squeeze too hard on the front, I can easily skid the back tire and I have read disk brakes that do that. I can't imagine having brakes that stopped quicker than these. There is a These work great is the point. The pads can be replaced without the carriers. The pads are non-replaceable. I like not throwing stuff away. Installation is simple, I just put them in and align them so they don't rub the tire or be off the rim. I didn't do any toe-in since the little scraper on the pad seems to do the proper toe-in for you. When you tighten the pads, make sure the back and front are touching the rim. Highly recommended.
TheSalmon is dual condition. The package is 13.208 cm long. The package width is 8.128 cm. The package is 1.27 cm high. The vehicle BRAKE PAD is a product.
👤I can't say they are better than the default rubber path that came with my alley, but I can't get the back pads to grip well on the back, and it could be me, because I'm not very good at grip. I am aware of the toeing. I know and watched a million videos but the back ones are not grouping correctly, and these pads still grip a million times more than the ones that came default with my bike. It's a specialized alley. They have done a very good job in the wet and I have read over and over again that these are the best. The back brakes are great in the wet, but when it's not wet, they don't grip, and that's the only reason I could pull that lever so hard.
👤I have tried many other brands and keep going back to these. Other brands did not perform as expected, but stopping power is great with my carbon rims. These have great stopping power in all weather conditions. They don't make any noise if they run hot and don't mark the rim. After a few thousand miles, wear seems to be minimal, I am not riding a lot of hills and riding season is short in the north. These are a winner with the ENVE's rim. I like the customer service at Kool Stop and they stand by their products. I've never had any issues with their pads for all my bikes.
👤I decided to try the Scott Mathauser pads because I usually use the black ones. I didn't want to have to buy new pads or find old ones. It's nice that they have a lot of options for pad replacements and still make a lot of inserts, and they slid nicely into the Tektro holders. The original Salmon colored pads are still better than these Salmon pads. Even though these are salmon, they do not stop well when wet, and on the areas where the sprinklers are going, I need to stop suddenly for cars, people or deer. These are very noisy and haven't bedded yet. I think they are an improvement over stock pads, but still not on par with what I know a brake pad is capable of.
👤I have no way to compare shoes side-by-side, so I don't know if the difference is worth it. They are easy to install. If your brakes are noisy and light sanding doesn't remove surface dust and sand doesn't fix it, replace them immediately and save the wear on your wheels.
👤The Cannondale CAAD8 was equipped with the stock Cannondale C4 brake calipers. The original pads were mediocre at best. I've been on the stock pads for 4 months now, and I can say that these are night and day from the stock pads. They can lock up the back wheel when gripping clean. They give the brakes a tacky feel, which other reviewers have complained about. I have found that this allows for improved braking intensity in wet conditions. These pads are different from the traditional black pads in wet conditions. They have an affirmative grip on wet rims and generate a small amount of gray aluminum/brake material sludge on the rim that seems to accumulate in wet/icy conditions. The pads are molded about 50 percent thicker than traditional pads to counteract the fact that they wear faster. You may have to open your brake calipers a bit wider to accommodate the pads. The wet and dry performance of these pads will make them my first choice for all of my future aluminum-rimmed wheels.
There is a plow tip for rain and mud removal. The package is 0.1 cm in length. The package is 10 cm in width. The package is 15.8 cm high. The vehicle BRAKE PAD is a product.
👤The pads are great for bikes with post brake shoes. Installation is important for stopping power. There is a There are a few installation tricks. Sand the faces with sand paper when the pads arrive. The pads should be moved along the side of the paper until they have fine sanding lines. "Toeing" the pads is critical and they should point to the front of the wheels. The front of the pad needs to hit the rim first. I put a zip tie around the back of the pad to make it an installation spacer. I remove the zip tie when the pads are tight. Rub alcohol or Brake Kleen on the wheel rim. A dirty rim is a squeal. There is a These pads should work great if you follow those steps. I missed the sanding step because the pads were too small. Quiet followed once I sanded them. Hope that helps!
👤I have old brakes. I bought replacement pads and they screeched. The pads were dry and brittle and had been sitting in inventory for a long time. The pads would be soft. He was correct. They have been great once they are seated.
👤I have tried for many hours and days to get the noise out of these. There were no use to the flat, cleaned, sanded, and toe in. I didn't make it out of the driveway for a ride on my beach cruiser without screaming brake noise. People are having fun with it. If your bike has noisy brakes, don't buy it.
👤I bought Eagle 2 pads elsewhere. The product on Amazon is called the "Kool Stop Thinline", which is a separate product from Eagle 2. I returned the Eagle 2 pads because I thought they were the wrong type. The replacement was also Eagle 2 and not Thinline. The replacement process was easy, with the exception of still receiving brake pads that do not match the listing name.
👤I had given up on screeching breaks before the babies came. I am happy to have found the reviews and purchased the pads. They work well and are worth the money.
👤It is easy to upgrade to your canti's. The pads were used for upgrades in the 1990s. My new/used cannondale has brakes on it. I ordered a set. There is a They didn't back down. Better stopping requires less grip. Can't ask for more.
👤I converted my Trek After the initial installation there was a lot of noise and squeaking, but by carefully sanding off the manufactured finish of the contact surface and providing ample toe-in to the installed pads they now provide very smooth and easy braking. The wheel rims are very bad from the old age-hardened black rubber pads and embedded grit, but the smooth stopping power of the Kool Stop pads makes up for it.
👤Me happy. I replaced the brakes on my utility bike with a set of shifters andbrake actuators that I bought on Amazon. The brakes are supposed to replace side-pulls, but are advertised as compatible with V-brake applications. I had a couple of near misses towing trash bins down a slope because of the less leverage available to squeeze - and I had to stop because I couldn't squeeze as hard as I could. I can stop on a dime with moderate, progressive gripping after replacing the pads with these salmon-colored babies. Good luck to everyone!
The Linear Pull Brake Pad is Threaded.
👤These pads are amazing. I have only a pair of them on my mountain bike, which I did my best to clean the rim, but it's not very true anymore, and parts of the surface are not flat or smooth. I have fantastic stopping power. I might end up going over the bars if the bike still had front brakes and I put these pads on. I'm not a power rider or anything like that, but I like getting things on wheels up to top speed, and I'm not a small guy. I thought I was going to have to throw this bike out because I was going to have to get a newer one with better brakes. There is a I'll still replace them with the same thing even if they only last 6 months. I've been replacing all the worn out and sub-par stuff on this old bike, and these pads are just the last thing that it needed. I'm a cheapskate who doesn't want to buy another bike any sooner than necessary, and also like that almost no one will steal the old thing I have, either! It's cool that you can still get a quality product like this. It seems like once the new thing is released, you'll have a harder time maintaining the old one. ... I know I'll have good stopping power at a minimum, so I'm pretty sure I'll pick up another bike with a cantilever-style brakes. I can't emphasize how great these pads are. The cables and hardware are all original, and the pads still do a great job. Normally, you have to replace all related assembly to get something in top-notch working condition, but this is an exception.
👤I've been using these pads for a while. They are the best rim-brake pads I have ever used. If you can fit the pads on your bike, then you should. There is a The stopping performance is very good. The extra contact surface and red compound really work. Changing the pads on my city bike stops it better than my gravel bike. They are good in the wet too. Not as good as disc brakes, but they seem to squeegee water/grime away from the rim better than other pads I've tried. There is a There are a few tips. Make sure you set them up correctly. If you don't have any toe-in, they can be very loud. 2. Make sure you clean the contact patch of your rim when you install these. I like to use a microfiber cloth. 3. If you still see black streaks on the rim after you clean it, you should take a nail file and rub the surface thoroughly. This will get rid of the streaks and give you a clean surface. 4. If you ride a lot in wet weather, you should wipe the surface of the pads off after every ride. The pads will become gunked up if they are not removed, but they do a good job of removing the gunk from the rim.
