superb is all I can say about the great pads I bought from the boys at superstar, put them on my orange 5 with hope mini mono brakes and they are still going well after lots of snowy and very muddy winter rides. have also just added a larger 203mm superstar disc and now stopping power is awesome but a fraction of the hope prices. well done men of superstar and keep up the good work I salute you !!
Can't go wrong with 4 sets for the price of what you'd normally pay for one. They last just as long too, all the ones I've ever bought have done anyway. Super quick delivery, on my doormat the next morning. That's 3 good things, can't think of anything bad, buy yourself some!
I have suffered with the awfull so called 'Turkey Gobble' noise on my Avid Juicy 3 brakes for the last 2 winters when using Avid Sintered pads.
I have had the brakes setup by my LBS but this made no difference. I Googled this problem to find I was not alone and found that the main cause seems to be sintered pads. So as I friend of mine has been using Superstar Kevlar pads in his Shimano brakes
I first used these pad when I had to borrow a pair from a friend during a weekend riding. All I can say is that the pads have amzing stopping power and are super long lasting. The Shimano pads that I used in my brakes lacked power and felt spongey however in the same brakes the Superstar pads felt strong, powerful and best of all only cost ̏11 per pair compared to the ̏25 Shimano equivilents.
