The Cistella brake pads (pack of 4) are designed solely for carbon rims with carbon braking surfaces. These pads provide an amazing combination of stopping power, longevity and finely tuned heat build-up.
Heat buildup is a serious concern for anyone who rides a carbon fibre wheel. The energy of momentum is converted into heat during braking, but while an alloy wheel can quickly dissipate this heat via conductivity, the resin that holds carbon fibre in place has comparatively poor conductivity and the heat can quickly rise to the point of softening the resin, deforming the wheel with disastrous consequences.
Wiggle stocks a large range of brake blocks for road caliper brakes, v-brakes and cantilever brakes. Brake blocks are available in various fitments and compounds to suit your needs, softer pads will wear quickly but are ideal for wet weather use, whereas hard compound pads will last but not offer great wet weather performance. Most brake blocks will be a medium compound unless otherwise stated, making them ideal for all round use.
