Same here, any updates on whether these will work with Lightweight wheels? Must be a very thorough testing procedure given the cost of the wheels I suppose.

Nothing Lightweight-related, but Black Prince on Gigantex rims here and the braking is the best I've ever had on carbon - right up there with a very good alu setup; zero pulsing, no noise and great stopping power. Impressive.

Not tried in the wet yet.

(I've not read the rest of this thread so apologies if I'm speaking out of turn!)

Went from yellows to Black Prince and the difference was dramatic. I love them. They are used on Zipp 202 and 404's, for what it's worth.

project3- I think the yellows will work fine on aluminium, but make sure you use different pairs (read from page 1)

Using the new black prince on my HED Stinger 6 tubular and love them from the first moment. Big improvement over the yellow ones and I also don't have the yellow residue showing on my rims anymore.

Had a few rides (dry conditions only so far) on them and to echo the sentiments above, they are fabulous. Curious to see how well they wear...

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.

Swissstop originally claimed the yellows could be swapped between Al and C with just a wipe off cleaning but I swap pads now. I think that claim has been since revised.

Also noticed the pads are now on Zipp's official list of approved pads, in case you are keeping score at home...
