Equipment > Components > Brake Pads > Brake Pads - Disc


Disc brake pad technology continues to improve, with better braking from advanced compounds and more active heat management from the backing plate to fins that help to radiate heat out from the pad and away from the rotor. SwissStop is well known across the cycling industry and marketplace for their excellent alternatives and options for OEM brake pads of all types. Their mountain disc brake pad models have drawn raves for pad wear and stopping power. SwissStop has carried that experience over to road disc brakes, which for some manufacturers and models may be the same as the XC mountain versions. SwissStop pads in most compounds are known for their superior modulation and the EXOTherm2 Disc Brake Pad series adds fins for faster heat release.

The EXOTherm2 combines an extremely durable, smooth modulating pad compound with a cooling fin equipped back plate which provides consistent, powerful braking in all conditions. The added benefits are improved pad life, smoother overall performance, and quieter interaction with the rotor. In SwissStop's rating process, it achieves 10/10 for heat management, 9/10 for longevity, and 9/10 for modulation. Pad wear is much lower than most OEM and aftermarket options delivering greater value and more consistent performance over the life of the pads.

Please be aware that SwissStop disc brake pads require a very specific break-in process. While all pads do have some requirements, SwissStop gives you specific instructions to achieve optimal performance and pad life. It is well worth the 10-15 minutes required and maximizes your decision to use SwissStop pads.
