Any experiences? I know their alloy rim pads are good cause they seem to bring my 15 kilo Peugeot to a halt pretty well! and wear is reasonable.

Some of the similarly priced (cheap/budget) carbon rim pads have bad squealy noise and wear down as quickly as choc-ices. But I have high hopes for the OBEs, any history will be helpful, thanks.

I'd use what your carbon rim manufacturer recommends. Carbon rims are not all the same when it comes to brake pads. For example some work well with cork pads which will damage other rims.
