I won't buy shimano ceramic pads again, they have worn out the ceramic coat on my mavic rim in just 1 really wet ride, plus the pads are 1/2 the original tickness. The wheels are 2 years old, with really little wear sign before that ride.

Shimano work good in the dry, maybe better than SwissStop. But I manage to do 2000km in the trail last year with SwissStop with little sign of wear, compare to 1 20km ride with Shimano...

Am I the only one who experiment such thing with shimano pads?

I will follow this post, as the SwissStop (blue) aren't no so good in the wet.

I don't know how you calculate. but the total cost including shiping is: 40,87 € is 58$ us dollars. Its is still a lots.... They don't have good shipping cost. That why i ordered 4 Schwalbe Rocket ron EVO at 16 euro each :wink: , a steal!! They don't have them anymore...

If you need other product try to find them in the same store, to absorbe the 19 euro shipping cost... Our search the web, google is your friend, and it's not really hard to find what you want...

If you need tires, this is a good price.

I have a new set of Shimano XTR ones you can have for £3.50? Packaging has been opened, but pads are both new.
