Replacement brake pads for carbon wheels.
CARBON RIMS REQUIRE DIFFERENT BRAKEPADS. WHY?
Abrasiveness: Carbon-specific pads are softer so they won’t wear into the rim.
Heat management: Your brakes work by converting kinetic energy (you moving forward) into heat energy. Aluminium
is a fantastic conductor of heat which means it’s good at dissipating and getting rid of it, which results in good brake
performance. Carbon is a very poor conductor of heat, so carbon-specific brakepads are needed to control the amount
of heat buildup, and pull it away from the rim.
What this means is that you’ll need to fit a pair of carbon-specific brakepads and use them only on your carbon rims.
Because these pads are very soft they’ll wear out quickly on aluminium rims, and you run the risk of small aluminium
shards getting stuck in the brakepad which will then damage your carbon rims.
