Hey guys,

So I'm not at home to actually swap them out... but I visually couldn't see (that I remember) any difference between the two?

Are the pads currently cross compatible or do I need to order campy specific pads?

I didn't think they ever were compatible.
There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?


So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

pretty sure the shape of the retention mechanism is different.

Even in campag world pre 2011 have a straight groove and post 2011 have a wedge shaped hole to retain the pad.

Shimano is different all together.

I have a retaining clip on mine with there new EPS stuff, though it's never been a problem to just cut a bit more out to make it fit.

Only if the grooves for it to slide in and out are different then thats a a problem.

Anyhow just ordered more Campy Sissstop Black pro pads :)

If you want to use Shimano style pads you could mount Shimano style pad holders.
