The best braking, in my book, still comes from cork pads (in the dry).
If we keep on repeating it long enough it may sink in. Eventually....
IME even in wet conditions they're still O.K.. Real pouring rain is a different matter but then what carbon specific pad does brake under those circumstances anyways?
Zipp corkies any good? (as in notably better than Corima's, that is)
P.S. Cork pads are also way lighter than anything else out there. This is WW's ainit?
The new Zipps seem pretty good, but I think that they are still trying to 'tune the mix', as I have seen different-looking pads. They certainly don't wear as fast as the old ones did.
The other choice may be the 'new' blue Shimano pads. I have been running those for a couple of seasons and they are pretty good. They have a more 'progressive' feel than other synthetic pads (still not as good as cork), but they are also good in the wet (snow, actually). I hope they start producing those pads for commercial sale (or some nice people get me more sets soon).
