During the development process our focus had been
- maximum brake power (wet and dry)
- perfect modulation
- no brake squeal
- least possible wear
- good performance on aluminum brake tracks as well
The latter enables the rider to switch between different wheelsets without having to swap brake pads, as well. While the Lightweight brake pads have been developed with carbon rims in mind and will develop their full brake power only in conjunction with carbon rims, they by far exceed regular cork pads on aluminum rims.
The new Lightweight pads are available for both Shimano and Campagnolo pad holders.
