@philipBer - Could you elaborate a little more about what makes them better than the Yellow King pads with the CCUs? Modulation? Heat buildup? Stopping power? All of the above?

I'm waiting to swap to Black Prince pads with my CCUs until the official nod from Mavic, but I'm curious what I should look forward to.

Thanks.

I want to know how they go with Enve 45 rims


The Black Prince go very well. I put them on after wearing out a set of Enve pads. Definitely better braking. Will see how the wear rate goes but its looking similar to the Enve pads.

Heat buildup: can't really tell you, since I am living in a flat area and normally riding alloys when pedaling in the mountains.
Modulation: from my point of view, modulation is much better.
Stopping power: little bit better as the yellows, but not very much.

You did not mention the price; in Europe the Black Prince Pads are cheaper than the yellows. And finally you will not have the ugly yellow dust on your rims and brakes.... :thumbup:

Are they cheaper in EU?
I checked quickly (honestly not deep search..) but I found the yellow still cheaper.

You are right! My Bike shop did a mistake, they put the wrong price tag on them, so I got them for 16€ (Campagnolo Version). :thumbup: After selling them to me for that price they realised their mistake and changed the price to 28€. Lucky me! :mrgreen:

For Zipp owners, they put Black Prince among their approved pads :thumbup:
Maybe it isn't the latest hot news for everybody, but definitely it's for me :)
Platinum Pro Evo although they perform really good, they are a bit pricey, more less 50% more than BP and as far as I'm concern, not available in UK, only ebay.
Now, it would be nice to have some reports on how BP perform vs. Pro Evo.

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.


Coming up to nearly a year ago Andreas from CarbonSportsGmbH said it would be a few weeks before they would announce if Black Prince pads would be approved or not on Lightweight wheels. As far as I know there's still no word. Lightweight pads made by SwissStop are good, as good as yellows, but if Black Prince are better I'd rather use them if my warranty won't be affected.

Maybe it might be simpler to contact CarbonSports support directly instead of asking here on the forum?
Just an idea...

And then you can post the answer here.
