Hello,

I ve got a Roval Clx60 wheels and I m not getting the braking modulation and power that i would get. I know that this whels have a carbon brake surface and never will be the same of an aluminium ones. I ve tried Corima Red and Swisstop Black Prince. Anybody has experience with this wheels (or clx40) and differents pads combinations? In this moment i m wearing swiistop on front and corima rear.

Thanks for your time and sorry my bad English!

Yeah I have a set of CLX40. I am currently using sram red 2011/CLX40/black prince. The braking is certainly not as good as my ee/meilensteins/black prince. I wasn't sure if my sram red 2011 brakes weren't getting the leverage due to the wide rim but apparently it isn't an issue with other wide rims. I find sanding the pads and cleaning the braking surface with alcohol helps a lot as the pads seemed to get glazed easily. Will keep an eye on this thread.

Have you tried the Specialized pads? I think that some of the pads mentioned above will void the warranty.

The stock Specialized pads are great. They wear a little quick , stopping is great. I'm using eecycleworks brakes. That might help.

What specialized pads are you talking about. The wheels came stock with swissstop black prince pads when I got them?

Someone has recommended the Koolstop carbon black for improved power.
