Joking aside,

I use them, they're nice. They have a few lines:
Organic
RS
Exotherm2
E
S

Organic, RS, and exotherm seem to be fully organic compounds.
Exotherm has some cooling fins to add surface area for cooling their compound, the first generation had a recall and version 2 is rolling out to vendors now I think.
E seems to be a hybrid organic/metallic compound.
S is a fully metallic compound.

I picked E so that I could get good initial bite even when the pads are cold but a bit less pad outgassing if I were to ever really ride the brakes down a really steep hill with the metallic content.

I remember reading a blurb that the new RS compound is primarily meant for MTB, but I see no reason why it couldn’t be used for the majority of road users.

I know that Swiss Stop recalled some of the Exotherm pads last year, has the company started offering a new version?

Edit to answer my own question: Exotherm 2
Michael - The Anaerobic Threshold is neither...

I asked Swissstop specifically for rainy weather and the advised me to use the RS. I may try them when my current DA metal are worn out.
