What would you reccomend? I’ve just bought Fibrax, but they seems quite hard.

They are fitted to Tektro Onyx cantis on a CX bike.

hi, been buying a few sets of these ritchey pads lately, they are advertised as factory seconds but the 6 pairs i have bought are faultless. very soft and snatchy :lol: feel to them. and £1.49 great price.

Koolstop eagle claw 2.

My aftermarket brake pad of choice for the last i don't know how long.
Even bought an entire box of road ones from a shop that was closing down as i knew i'd need them......

THese are the vbrake pad only options.

Hang on? Do you need V-Brake pads or Canti pads?

Either way, have a look on here and get the eagle claw version of whatever fits your shoes/pad holders ;)

Ref those blue Ritchey pads, they are made by Fibrax but the blue compound is super soft and aimed at low power brakes or wet use, the upshot is very good stopping power but highish wear rates.

They are so cheap though its worth burning through a few sets.
