5.0 out of 5 stars Really good progressive feel 10 May 2014
By Michael
Verified Purchase
I have never bought premium brake pads before let alone for a bicycle. I bought these to replace pads on the bike my 16 year old son rides but but I liked the look of them and fitted standard types on his bike - as I have recently started cycling to work and wanted to see if these are any different.

They really are very different and very good indeed. I cycle up and down some very steep hills and through some muddy tracks, and these pads are just great - well worth the extra money.

The reason is that they are progressive and quiet - it's difficult to explain what a sense if control they give particularly when you are going very fast indeed and need to slow down heading downhill in the wet.

I will be buying more even though I am quite tight with money and they cost a lot more than standard pads - because they are well worth the extra money

5.0 out of 5 stars Vunderbar!!! 9 May 2013
The 'Clarks 72mm Aluminium Triple Contour Bike V Brake Pads Set of 4 Pads' are a really quality effort. The other week I was coming down a hill when some stupid old lady stepped out in front of me. Fortunately, the brakes were responsive and brought the bike to a near immediate stop. Needless to say I got off my bike, lifted the old lady above my head, and then proceeded to throw her over somebody's hedge.

Thank you, bye.

5.0 out of 5 stars extremely good stopping power and endurance 28 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Have been using these breaks for well over 4 months?! they have barely worn and have amazing stopping power, I think my bike rim is more worn than these!! and it's a new wheel lol! there is no comparison to my stock breaks that came with my challenge crusade, they lasted like 2 months heavy use and it was becoming dangerous as i wasn't able to stop fast if i needed to. these go through the mill with me as I'm a bit overweight, these things happen.. but i'm so overwhelmed by the quality, you would be foolish NOT to have these on a V type breaking system. I didn't like that i only got one pair and was conned with 6 pounds postage, what a joke!! nevertheless they came on time and are fabulous, to me this as close as you can get to hydraulic breaking, work surpsingly well in the wet as well thanks to it's larger surface area as they are longer than standard. I will definitely buy these again. The rubber is a good solid material shows little sign of wear if any, I have not had better breaking with break pad type in all my years of cycling. They are almost as valuable to me as the bike itself lol. highly reccomended

5.0 out of 5 stars STOP ON A UK 5 PENCE!! 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought these brake pads because the 2-week old ones that came with my brand new bike were naff! I was surprised at how responsive the pads were. I had to brake because of the typical car owner not watching where he was going and I STOPPED IMMEDIATELY, NO SKIDDING, NO DELAYS . . . JUST STOPPED!!
If I hadn't have stopped when I did, I'd have been scraped up like a jar of jam off the floor!!

So to sum it up:





Only one bit of advice, do a couple of miles off-road to run in the brakes as they do 'Snag' on first couple of uses, they're perfect afterwards
