SwissStop FlashPro Black Prince Brake Pads $50.00
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.

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.
