Last For Ever, Great Dry Performance But....

Consinitial wet weather limited braking
Proslong lasting, blue
Now 2 to 4 times the price of Shimano ceramic pads, which have better wet weather performance. The Swiss stop product are scary,when it rains after a long dry spell, giving virtually no braking for a short time until the rims clear. But do last for years using daily. Just be careful when it rains. This does not happen with the Shimano ones.

I recommend this product
ConsA little more expensive
ProsTough
Some report noisy brakes with these but so far I have had no problem with these. Some noise but seems to be getting better quickly. It is not annoying though. They fit my 2009 Deore V brake shoes. Huge improvement in dry braking on a CSS rim compared to the Koolstop dual compound pads on a standard Rigida Andra 30.

Block Shoe

Will these blocks fit into Ashima 72m Cantilever Brake Block shoes?
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

These Swissstop Blue blocks should fit fine into your 72mm Ashima cantilever brake block shoes.

Thanks.
How Many?

Does one get the four shown or just two?
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

These brake blocks come as a pack of 4 as shown in the picture.

Thanks.
Where Is The Holder For These Blocks?
By

I need just the holder.
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

These blocks are designed as replacement blocks for any Shimano style V-brake holder. The holders are not available without pads I'm afraid so if you wanted to use these blocks you would have to buy a full set of pads and remove the inserts from them.

Thanks.
Do These Fit The Same As Shimano S70C Brake Pads?
By

SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

Yes, these brake blocks will fit into the brake shoes the same as standard Shimano V-brake blocks like the S70C blocks.

Thanks.
Cantilever Compatibility
By

Can these be used with cantilever brakes? I assume so, as they're the recommended pads for Rigida Grizzly CSS 700C rims, and I haven't seen many 700C tourers using v brakes compared with cantilevers.
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

As they are only the inserts you'll need to fit them to a cantilever compatible backing then they will work fine with cantilever brakes. V-brakes are less common on 700c wheels but the CSS sidewall is more popular on their 26" Andra rims.

Thanks.
