Well my car’s brakes generate a lot of dust and it’s always a chore to keep the wheels clean. But I was surprised to see as much dust as I’m getting my from my 9120 brakes.

I don’t have that much brake dust on my DA disc brakes.
Which pads do you use? Or is it maybe also road dust??


(BTW for the car brake dust and your wheels make sure to have a sealing protection for the wheels. The dust is then way easier ti get off then)

Switch to sintered pads if you’re still on resin. You’ll get a lot less brake dust.

Campag H11, also quite a lot of dust, that sticks to fork and hubs very well, worse when you have a white frame :(
Using SwissStop pads...

I’m using the dura ace pads that came with the 9120 group. Not sure what those are though.

The dust just gets all up in the all the nooks and crannies on the brake calipers, fork lower and hubs/spoke interface.

If you’re like me and try to keep your machine clean this takes some extra effort.
