Avid 20 R Performance Pads A hi-performance 1-piece pad These are very good 1 piece pads with excellent characteristics (almost sounds like we're selling wine). Features: • Budget one-piece brake block • Uses same compound as the excellent rim wranglers • Compatible with most V-brakes
Rated 5 out of 5 by misterrubble Great pads
Can't fault them, not overly noisy, as easy as any pad to setup. Shame all the nuts and pillars corrode over time, but then dont they all ?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Really good pads
I got these to replace the pads on a Kona Dew. The old ones where down to the studs so anything would have made a big difference. These are really good. They have a really sticky feel to them when applyed and very good stopping power. No flashy colours like the Koolstops but they do the job fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Хорошие колодки
Взял 2 пары, поставил одновременно, вначале получил ощутимый прирост тормозного усилия и лучшую модуляцию, чем было на родных SD-3, потом пообвык и считаю нормой =). Друзья с дисковой гидравликой не верят, что ободная механика может так четко и ровно тормозить ;). Пользуюсь уже 3 месяца, износ незначительный(ни разу не подтягивал) с учетом того, что ездил осень-зима. Используется тот же компаунд, что и на RW-2, так зачем платить больше? =)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great!
Well as you can see from the comment above I got these around May, and it's October. I've got such good use out of these and I came back to this page to buy them again. Not the best in the wet (like every caliper brake system), but if you strengthen your brakes they're fine! I even took them down the mountians several times during the summer so they certainly got a beating but they held up. :D They lack the 5* because obviously they can be improved but all in all a great buy!

Had these on for two weeks. Good performance in the dry but as effective as blocks of butter in the wet

I replaced the pads that came with my rockhopper. Prior to chanigng I thought that a "pad was a pad". Was amazed by the increased stopping power!! Great pad for the price

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Pretty good.
Just got these a few days ago and they're very very good. Nearly threw myself off the bike as I was so used to my worn down pads! They're extraordinarily responsive and are such good value. The real question is; how long will they last? In all honesty I think they'll degrade rapidly, especially as I cycle every single day. But we'll see. I'd definitely recommend them, pretty handy to have just incase too :)

These pads have worn well on and off road. Easy to fit - very good value for money.
