- Fitted with PowerPad plastic backings to give great performance at a great price.
- 8mm of pad material ensures a long-lasting pad.

Recommended Use

Sharp light grind, dry weather.
Smooth rim, dry weather, with or without tar.

Questions

Joshua Hewlett

Are these pads compatible with Echo hydraulic rim brake?

Hi Josh - These pads should fit your Echo brakes fine. All of our pads in our HS33 Brake Pads section would fit the Echo cylinders perfectly too. Thanks, Mark

Chen Pollina

Are these sold as a set (4 pads) or a pair (2 pads)? I'm guessing 2 pads, but want to make sure. Thanks!

Hi Chen - you're right. These pads are sold in pairs - enough for one brake. Thanks, Flipp.

Amazing ! ! !

Posted by Michael on 25/11/2011

These pads are amazing as soon as i got them i fitted them and within seconds they were biting perfectly and sounded great. will be out all night annoying the neighbours. would reccomend these to anyone but if you have the money go for the cnc backed pads.

Hi Michael - I'm glad you like the pads (even though I don't think your neighbours will be too happy!). Thanks for the review!

Bitey, very bitey

Posted by David on 28/08/2012

I'm running these on a smooth Inspired Pro rear rim, and even on a smooth rim they seem to bite really well but the hold wasn't as great as desired. No problem though, because it was nothing a little tar couldn't fix and now they are running fine! Might try a grind at some point.

Reply from TartyBikes on 28/08/2012

Hi David - Getting good hold on a smooth rim can be tricky as any dust/dirt that gets onto the rim impacts on your brake's performance, although tar can definitely help. A grind should get your brake holding really well too, although you'll possibly lose a little modulation as a grind can make a brake a bit more 'grabby'. Thanks for the review!

I'm not surprised

Posted by Jimmy on 01/11/2016

Hello I tried it and in my opinion are the same as the "echo" white, I have ground rim and I am using tar to improve braking

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/11/2016

Hi Jimmy - Sorry to hear you aren't happy with the Blues. Other riders we have spoken to have had success running them on smooth rims without tar, but different pads will work best for different riders. Thank you for your review.
