Logical.

Though we all have our own partisan affiliations when it comes to components, it's hard to argue against the supremacy of Campagnolo wheels. The bearings, the iconic branding, the reliability of Italian-built carbon—virtually every wheel wish list reserves a top-three spot for carbon hoops from Vicenza. If you're among the fortunate few to own a pair, then you owe it to yourself to protect them with Campagnolo's Carbon Brake Pad Set.

The pads are made with a blend of compounds designed to interact with Campagnolo's brake tracks, contributing to more confident stopping power on all of the Italian brand's carbon rims but having even greater effect when paired with the 3Diamant brake track found on the latest generation of Bora 35 and 50 wheelsets. Campagnolo claims that these gains manifest in both dry and wet conditions. That's great on paper, but what really matters is what it does on the road.

To prove this point, we present exhibit 16—as in, stage 16 of the 2014 Giro. Nairito staged a pink-jersey coup on this stage with a daredevil descent of the Stelvio in snowy, wet conditions so severe that they caused confusion about stage neutralization among the other teams. When he made his move, the diminutive Colombian had the confidence of Bora 35s and Campy's Carbon Brake Pads underneath him, ensuring he'd have responsive braking so he could carry speed into corners and consolidate his lead as much as possible on the descent.

If you're on Campy wheels, running ho-hum generics or—worse—alloy-specific pads is the equivalent of assembling all of the internal ingredients for a proper ruben and then sandwiching it between sourdough—that is, if using sourdough instead of marbled rye entailed a risk of catastrophic wheel failure. If you've invested in a set of Boras or Hyperons, you've probably also invested in countless early mornings in the pain cave in an effort to weaponize your body for race day. Running the wrong pads risks destroying both wheels and body, so making one more investment in fresh, carbon-specific Campy grabbers is just the logical thing to do.

this brake pad is for shimano?

Would like to know the difference between black and red pads for campy carbon wheels. Some forums said that they are different depending on the type of wheel (tubular or clincher), both made of carbon. Thanks for your help.

I use them on my Fulcrum carbon wheels. I had them for over a year. Used them on a long descent while it was raining. I will buy them again once they wear out.
