This set of 4, 2 front and 2 rear, composite brake pads is made specifically for carbon fibre wheels. Unlike metal, carbon fibre does not dissipate heat effectively and so the heat generated by braking builds up in the wheel and reduces stopping power. As a result, brake pads made of a sepcific compound of rubber that prevents the build up of heat have been developed. These pads have the additional advantage that they are also less abrasive and protect the rim from being damaged by a rough pad.
