Pros & Cons

  • Highly suitable for carbon wheels as the soft rubber won't damage your rims.
  • A neutral colour, so suitable for most bikes.
  • The soft rubber wears out quickly.
  • The black brake dust will show up on a white bike.
  • Pay attention to the warranty of your wheels: some manufacturers void the warranty if brake pads other than their own have been used.

The Swissstop Flash Pro Black Prince brake pads offer improved modulation, a shorter stopping distance in wet conditions, and create less heat than the Yellow version. The brake modulation has become noticeably more linear than with the Yellow Kings, offering you more consistent stopping power across the range of your brake. The Yellow Kings were some of the best performers in wet conditions, but their outclassed by the new Black Prince pads, offering a 25% reduction of stopping distance in wet weather. Finally, the Black Prince brake pads reduce the optimal maximum performance temperature of your pads by 44%, thereby increasing your safety if you're using clincher tyres. Comes as a set of 4.

Appear to have excellent stopping power.

They have much better feel that the yellow version I was using previously.

If you're serious stopping, there's no other option

Ive used a few brands of brake pads, admittedly not that many for carbon, but these are superb on carbon brake surfaces. In the dry, it's hard to tell the difference from aluminium brake tracks. At the price Mantel is offering them at there is no downside.
