I know what enve says, but how much of an infraction is this?

Frankly, who cares? I'd rather live and Swissstop Black Prince have about twice the retardation and modulation of Enve pads in the dry; unlike Enve pads, they also work (up to a point) in the wet.

Comments based on Enve 45 Classics - YMMV.

Which Enve rims do you have? If it's the new textured brake track rims, I wouldn't diverge from the Enve black pads. I have found the braking to be excellent in both dry and wet conditions. The wet braking so surpassess anything else I have experienced (other than Mavic ceramic Reflex rims with swissstop green pads) that I couldn't imagine that it could be improved.

Old track - 8.9s.

I've stayed on the enve pads on my 4.5's (old track), stopping is fine in the dry, in the wet you wouldn't chose to be out as the braking dominates how you ride. I have the advantage of a wet bike though (that runs discs) so I'm not making much of a compromise to stay within warranty.

Having said that I'm not sure how Enve would tell you hadn't used their pads.....

Enve doesn't make brake pads, and in all likelyhood it's Swiss Stop who makes them FOR Enve. I'd rock the Black Prince ones.
