Our review

Not cheap, but superb, long-lasting performance
Skip to view product specifications

If you’re running ceramic rims, or Rigida’s excellent CSS rims with tungsten carbide braking surfaces, you’ll find that in harsh conditions normal brake pads wear through rapidly.


Slotting neatly into normal V-brake cartridge-style shoes, these SwissStop pads are the longest lasting brake blocks we’ve come across and unlike some ceramic-specific pads, they offer good braking in the wet.


The only downside is the initial ear-bleeding squeals, though this dies down as they bed in. Teamed with suitable rims, they’re the best combination we’ve found for long distance, wear-free touring.
