Pads and Disc Rotors from SwissStop - Specialist for Brake Solutions

The success of the SwissStop brand began almost a century ago under the name REX Articoli Tecnici SA in Mendrisio, where it is still based today. Originally specializing in chemical products, the real magic began when SwissStop delved into the world of rubber compounds in the 1950s. This laid the foundation for the brand's success - with brake pads for aluminum and carbon wheels and disc brake systems for bicycles worldwide. To this day, SwissStop is synonymous with advanced braking technology and sets international standards for braking solutions.

What makes the Swiss brand special? Quite simply: The tireless dedication to technology and innovation - combined with a deep understanding of sustainability and quality.

Brake Pads for Rim Brakes - Exciting Brake Pad Compounds, Great Performance

SwissStop not only sets standards for high-quality brake discs - SwissStop brake pads in the categories road bike and mountain bike are also notorious in the community. The products of the manufacturer are considered a manifestation of quality and offer a strong performance. The goal: to raise your safety to a maximum - with highly developed brake pads for rim brakes. How does SwissStop achieve this? To ensure the best possible performance, you need precisely matched rubber compounds: 

  • Original Black: When developing this compound for aluminum rims, SwissStop's focus was clearly on an ideal balance for everyday use. With Original Black, this is demonstrated by strong braking performance, especially in dry conditions, and long durability.
  • BXP: Maximum braking power for aluminum rims and easy dosage. SwissStop placed great emphasis on this when developing the BXP compound.
  • Yellow King: With Yellow King, SwissStop created a real weather all-rounder for carbon rims. Decisive elements here are the low abrasion paired with a good dosage.
  • Black Prince: Good braking values with carbon rims even in wet conditions? SwissStop meets this challenge with the Black Prince compound. The secret of success is the reduced heat production during braking. 

Thanks to colored markings, you can always find the right brake pad for your aluminum or carbon rims at SwissStop: White lettering stands for aluminum rims, yellow for carbon rims.

For a full experience with SwissStop pads for rim brakes and for your own safety, you better refrain from combining carbon pads on aluminum rims and vice versa!

On the other hand, carbon brake pads on aluminum rims are basically rideable, but you should absolutely avoid riding your carbon brake pads on aluminum brake flanks in training and on carbon flanks in competition. Tiny aluminum particles remaining in the pad can irreparably destroy your expensive carbon rim in just a few rotations.

All four rubber compounds are available in FlashPro (brake pads), Full FlashPro (brake shoes) and RacePro. BXP and Black Prince are additionally suitable as Flash EVO for wheels with limited space for pads. Thanks to the numerous combination options SwissStop offers for so all requirements the right brake pad.
