ENVE Enve Carbon Brake Pads - Set of 2 $30.00
Enve has spent a lot of research and development time towards the improvement of the braking surface on their carbon rims. It stands to reason that an implicit part of their carbon braking system would also be the Enve Carbon Brake Pads.
With a goal of having a brake pad compound that will manage heat, minimize abrasion, and perform in wet conditions with Enve rims, the Carbon Brake Pads provide good enough performance to make you forget that you're not braking on a good old fashioned aluminum rim. And forget about any brake squealing; the interface between brake pad and rim will function so smoothly that you'll be able to slam on the brakes at a stoplight you thought you'd make and not have to worry about announcing your presence with the brake squealing like a pig.
Tested at length during the design process for the Smart Enve System wheelsets, the Enve Carbon Brake Pads will increase the longevity of the brake pad and the braking surface. Wet or dry, you can count on them to bring you to a stop without drama, and you'll have smooth modulation that will allow you to feather your brakes in the pack or 'round sweeping corners.
Note: This pair of pads is for one wheel. You'll need 2 pairs for your bike.

The Only Pad I'd Use on Enve Carbon Rims
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've used Enve's pads for over a year now and wouldn't even consider going back to other OEM pads. They provide smoother deceleration, are more reliable, particulalrly in wet conditions and last longer than other brands. While the best I've tried, I find that the braking performance still does not match that of regular pads on an aluminum braking surface.
