Bought these 5 months ago to replace the standard Hope ones on my Hope Race Evo X2.
The Hope pads always felt inconsistent - one would bite nicely while the other would just feel crap and the squealing they'd make in the wet!!
These SS Kevlar pads have been awesome! Very consistent performance, virtually no squealing (even when wet), great feel with a nice solid 'bite'.
Will defo get the
Still it works, is a gorgeus rear hub.
Two times I was on foot, one I fell to the ground the other bent a 1051 chain, due to the failure of the teeth of the freehub body.
After the first failure the piece was replaced under warranty but it broke again after a few months, now the wheel is back on inspection at superstar.
I generally love Superstar stuff and have been buying it for years but these are Rubbish! The plastic end break off very easily. I'm about to send my third set back and to make matters worse they damaged my brand new Paceneti TL28 29er rim, Ggrrr.
Been using them for nearly two years and they have stood up to Loads of abuse and are still blue.
Set up with a gaffa getto set up.
When you put them in, push them down hard with your thumb and do the lock ring up.
10 out of 10!
