Strengths:    awesome Braking Power

Weaknesses:    Rim Eaters

Bottom Line:   
Great breaking Power when dry and even under wet conditions. But the pads are Rim-eaters! My new Rims are nearly gone after oneYear. My old rims last more than 6 Years with KoolStop Pads! (I always drive the same way to work.)
I will swich back to KoolStop.

Strengths:    Very sticky but modulate well. Don't have a groove in them to hold stuff to gouge your rims. Quiet. Great in dry or wet. Great price.

Weaknesses:    Don't last forever, but what pads do? Hard to find locally--when a store does have them in stock I buy a season's worth.

Bottom Line:   
I used Aztec cantilever pads back in the day and loved them. Now I use "Aztec Shimano style V-brake replacement
pads" (like it says on the package) in my XTR V-brakes and love them as well. If there are other pads out there that I haven't tried that are as quiet and have the same or more stopping power as these I'd like to know. I ride about 700 singletrack miles a year, love to climb, don't bomb recklessly downhill (so, yeah, I do ride my brakes more than the next guy} and two sets of pads last me a year. Try them.

Favorite Trail:   Anything steep but rideable

Duration Product Used:   More than 3 years

Price Paid:    $8.00

Purchased At:   Performance when they have them or online

Similar Products Used:   XTR pads-- stop reasonably well but make that annoying
"sssshhhhhhh" that drives me crazy. What's up with that?
Ritchey--stop better than XTR but have that groove that traps crud and more expensive than Aztec.

Bike Setup:   2000 Gary Fisher Sugar 2 frame built up with full XTR (XT cranks--I need that 22 granny!)
