Braking surface on new Cosmic Carbon Pro SL C with supplied SwissStop yellow pads is better in the wet than my alloy Ksyriums
Wow...that's a pretty big endorsement. Have you also tried with black prince pads??

It is hart to comprehend that yellow Swiss on any carbon rims can perform better than any aluminium rim with any descent pads. I'm quite surprised that people still use yellow Swiss. Black Prince offer better modulation and power as well.
I haven't tried Black Prince pads as I'm still on the original pads that were supplied with the wheels (though they are getting to the last bit of life left in them after regular use from March of this year).
I didn't have any issues with the yellow pads on the carbon rims and for comparison purposes, I've used Campagnolo standard pads and am currently running SwissStop green pads on the alloy wheels (non-Exalith or Fulcrum equivalent). The first wet ride that I had on the alloy rims in September was terrifying - seemed to take a lot longer to clear the water from the rim and offer any kind of bite compared to the wet runs I got caught out on with the carbons over our 'summer'.
Hadn't considered trying anything other than the yellow pads on account of potential warranty issues but if Black Prince pads offer even better performance, I'll definitely look into them.
