Note: This is an utterly unscientific graphical representation to help convey the same info that Cycleworks staff uses to answer customer inquiries about the differences between the pads. The information above is the opinion of Chris Kelley, principal of Ca Cycleworks, and is based upon his use of various braking products in his 20+ years of riding (and 3+ years racing) experience. We welcome the submission of any and all professionally obtained test results.
