So the braking on my Corima pads on Carbon tubulars with my Zero Gravity brakes isn't so hot..........i'm a mt. biker by heart, so every road brake isn't so hot compared to avid juicy 7 discs............

Is there a brake pad that will work better on my carbon rims?

i'm running Lew Sydney wheels if that matters

I've been using the Koolstop pads for carbon rims. I've used them with both Reynolds and American Classic rims and found the braking to be the same, in dry weather, as a standard pad on an aluminum rim. I'm a Zero G brake user also. I've found a slight toe in helps. The front of the brake pad on my bike hits the rim about 1 mm before the back end of the pad.

I don't have 0G brakes yet, but have used Corima pads in Campy calipers with Corima Winium rims. The braking was smooth but spongy and lacked grab in my opinion. On the recommendation of Casran here I installed Campy carbon pads for Hyperon. They have shown to be a great improvement. The braking performance in the dry is close to aluminum rims now.

Great to hear that divve! :thumbup: Campy carbon brake pads (the have a grey colour) work excellent on Campy rims (thus Corima rims as well), at least under dry circumstances.

What pads do the Zero Gs come with as standard?

What are the standard pads like on alloy rims?

I intend to get OGs soon, but dont have cabon rims - the shame of it!

The orange Corima pads that come with ZG brakes will (apparently) work on both Alloy and carbon rims...! I tried them on alloy rims and found them to be somewhat lacking in bite. The UK importer of ZG supplied me with Koolstop Campag 2000 pads (black) and they work just fine.

Standard 0g 2005 come with black koolstop pads with a harder compound than the ones sold in store (but not as hard as the ones that came with 0g 2004).

Best racing performance on alu rims so far: swisstop green (these wear the rims out quite fast).

Best racing performance on carbon rims: Kool stop carbon and the swisstop carbon pads.

Best training performance all depending on weather:
normal temp dry: koolstop black/swisstop black
mixed dry wet and normal temp: koolstop mixed black/salmon.
extreme cold/wet: koolstop salmon.

so my 2005 Og-05's came with some sort of kool stop black pad also, how can i tell is those are meant for carbon rims or non-carbon rims?

i'd hate to kill my carbon rims with some non-carbon compatible pads

The black pads that come with the 05 OG's are meant for aluminum rims. You need the red Corima's or the Koolstop's in Campy made for carbon rims for the carbon. I have two set of the same brake.

I thought if you used non carbon pads on a carbon rim it just wore the pad out REALLY fast, especially in the wet.
Is this true?

I have also smelt them in the bunch, mmmmm, burning rubber....

I like Lightweight pads the best on carbon rims.

Lightweight pads are made by SwissStop, but they aren't the Yellow King.
