SwissStop stops.

Compatible with both Shimano and SRAM brakes, SwissStop FlashPro Elite Black Prince Brake Pads are for carbon rims only.

FlashPro means that the pads are compatible with Shimano and SRAM brake calipers. To better the performance over the previous Flash pads, the FlashPro has deeper asymmetrical grooves and a more pronounced leading edge profile. The idea is to "squeegee" away more water to improve the wet weather performance and the deeper grooves help give the pads better modulation. SwissStop increased the total pad depth with more material above the wear line -- good news for those folks that live in the high mountains.

Known for its excellent modulation, the Black Prince compound brings the feel of braking on aluminum to carbon rims, and offers powerful braking in all weather conditions, including cold and rain.

Unanswered Question

Just to confirm, are these supposed to work on aluminum rims? Only the "Elite" version are for carbon rims only, correct?

As expected from SwissStop

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just installed these and have had 2 rides with my Zipp's. Toed them in as instructed and aside from some break in squeal, they are working as expected. I have yet to ride them on a long down hill yet but so far so good. I will have to report back later after some more miles.

Best i have found

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For just carbon brake surfaces these are unmatched so far even in wet conditions. Each carbon surface is different but these are very solid. In fact i like the braking with these on carbon over a normal alloy braking surface with alloy pads.

If you have carbon fiber wheels and have been using the Swisstop yellow king pads you will want to strongly consider the Black Prince. They appear to be a bit softer and braking is significantly improved. They will squeal when new unless you make sure to have some toe-in as recommended. Got caught in the rain a few times and while stopping distance did increase, pulsing the brakes to dry the tracks occasionally while riding improved stopping performance when needed. Still prefer allow wheels in the wet but sometimes "rain happens" and the carbon fiber wheels are my preferred. Using second generation SRAM Rival group.
