colo, have you been using the Black Prince pads on LW's? We are still waiting for an answer from CarbonSports as to whether they are approved for use on LW's.
Before we can give approval for usage of Black Prince pads in combination with Lightweight wheels, we have to do our own tests - both on road and in laboratory.
This will take some weeks. Until that only the Lightweight by Swissstop pads are allowed for Lightweights wheels to avoid a loss of warranty.
Has CarbonSports done any testing of the Black Prince pads yet?
We're still testing them.
Andreas, do you have test results yet? Thanks.
Andreas' response "We're still testing them" in the quote above was made on September 25, 2012.
However, there seems to be some information flowing around (not from CarbonSports) suggesting that Black Prince pads aren't suitable for LW's.
Do you have any idea what kind of wear they're causing on the rim brake surface? Can you quantify how Black Prince pad longevity compares to LW (grey) pads or SwissStop yellow? How does the performance compare, in dry conditions and in wet conditions?
