For many years Kool-Stop has been the go-to company for quality aftermarket brake pads suitable for use in a large variety of brakes, over a huge spectrum of riding conditions. With unique compounds specially crafted for use in the harshest conditions, Kool-Stop has carved a name for themselves with low cost, predictable braking power.
The Black series brake pads from Kool-Stop are their version of an all-arounder brake pad designed for use over a wide variety of terrain and conditions. Compatible with all alloy rims, the Kool-Stop Black pads utilize a 7.65mm contact area that sits flat against your rim for optimal brake power when you need it most. Proudly manufactured in the United States, Kool-Stop brake pads are a breeze to install, and far surpass comparable pads in longevity and stopping power.
Due to the precise nature of the Pacenti SL23 sidewall, the braking surface is less wide than other rims, presenting problems with some types of brake pads. As a result of their narrow construction, the Kool-Stop Black series brake pads are the ideal pad choice for those running V2 SL23 rims who desire maximum brake wear life and optimal stopping power.
