ProsEfficient and non-abrasive
Malcolm’s review is spot on with regard to performance and wear. Somewhat expensive but must be offset by savings on life of rims so still good value for money IMO.

I recommend this product
ProsExcellent performance in all conditions
First off - don't be but off by the price - this is for a pack of 4, rather than just a pair.
On the bike, they are excellent - braking is positive, but not too fierce, and remains the same in wet, mud and sand..
They also are non-abrasive, so cut significantly down on rim wear.
I have also used the green pads - which are also extremely good - but are very positive - other people have compared them to "having disc brakes" - so unless you need to stop very suddenly a lot of times, black should be fine.
I would suggest rubbing the surface of the blocks with a fine emery board before use - this prevents the squeaks before they wear in. (This advice goes for any blocks...)

Could these pads be used instead of Shimano S70C (Y8A298030) on BR-T780 brakes, please? Thanks.

Hello & thank you for your enquiry.
On brakes BR-T780 I would recommend - Shimano Deore XT BR-T780 S70C Cartridge Brake Inserts - Y8A298030 for pure compatibility.
Hope this assists.
Kind Regards, PC 20/6/23.
