    great pads, they have good life, great power and i got mine on sale so were great value. the only thing i would say is that the red paint on the back plate was a little sloppy but didn't effect performance so was fine.

    They do what they are supposed to do. I use the organic type on the Alpine rotor with Avid Code R brake. I cannot confirm excess wear of the brake pads. After two tours with ~2500m of total altitude difference there is no visible wear. For this price five stars.

    usate una volta con rotore nuovo. i rotori e i pad presentano usura anomala. I pad sono fessurati e crepati. Ho trovato nei pad piccole particelle di pietra e di metallo, probabilmente incorporati durante l'uso. Li rimander?indietro per farmeli cambiare. Sconsigliati.

    Not really a product to get excited about, or even technical, it fits and it's well finished. No faff, no nonsense, just good value, good product and swift delivery.

    Bought this after much deliberation. Read all the reviews and I think some are unfair. Does a great job. Haven't had a problem with the chain coming off at all. Yes there is a bit of noise from it but personally it doesn't bother me at all. Easy to set up and install. Looks fantastic and works well with my bash guard set up.

    Quick review: Doesn't hold the caliper in the right position Longer review: As far as brake adaptors go, these are pretty bad. I saw some reviews from people saying they had had problems but just figured they were using a weird setup or something. I'm using Zee brakes on superstars own rotors. I have a Shimano adaptor on the back that holds the caliper in the correct position so that the pads a

    Took the gamble of trying these in some Avid Elixir hoses. They've worked a treat, the barb does take some getting in- I had to slightly enlarge the hose with a 2mm hex key. Way cheaper than Avid ones.

    Excellent pads, great improvement on breaking after replacing original shimano organic compound... at least 20-30% stronger... I'm not trying anything else except this... Running them with my M596 + rt64 rotors, and now i have to try with superstar floating rotors.. But I think it's going to be brutal combo :D

    Great value for money, just wish the pad springs were better. They don't last as long as the hope pads, but you get just as a good a performance from them. For the money you save I'd rather buy 4 sets of superstar pads for ̏20 than spend ̏30 on 2 sets of hope. The only issue I have with the superstar pad is that the spring provided isn't wide enough or strong enough to keep the pads pressed ont

    5 stars
    Very good, clamps my FSA carbon post with minimal torque and it has resisted twisting or dropping so far. looks great in red and matches the superstar uno headset I got at the same time perfectly. Low weight too, bout 20 grams.
