Clarks semi metallic compound for ultimate performance in all conditions. Engineered around the requirements for Free Ride and Downhill cycling. Engineered around the principle that by reducing the build up of heat you reduce the affects which can include brake fade. The VRS range of products incorporate all the features required by the serious cyclist in all riding conditions. The compound has been developed to also give significant improvements in durability and is CEN, REAch and ROHS compliant
Kevlar reinforced: Introducing Kevlar into the compound increases the frictional properties of the pad increasing performance
Ceramic material: The coefficient of ceramic means that introduced to the disc pad material the frictional properties are higher in wet conditions
Red & Yellow Copper: Materials with different densities are used to create a balance in braking performance, so performance is maintained during low & high speed riding
Improved Heat Dissipation: The uniquely designed backing plate increases the surface area of the plate allowing heat to be dissipated quicker. The grooves also reducing the contact area therefore slowing the transference of heat between pad and caliper
Durability: These features combined giving a 35%-45% increase in durability compared to a standard sintered pad
Pads designed to fit the Avid Elixir CR/R brake system

I bought 3 sets of these. Every time I installed them (on two separate bikes) my brakes lost power and howled, sending vibrations right back to the handlebars from the rear wheel. I tried cleaning them and the discs, Squeal-Out (worked for about two rides per application) and sandpaper to no avail. Went back to Avid sintered and the brakes gained power and lost the squeal. Never again.

Loose power very quickly, Wear out quickly, Burn up quickly (smoking pads and all).. Don't do it! You get what you pay for.
Test Riden on Demo 8 with Elixir Rs on Flims DH trails throughout season. Still looking for right pads but for sure this is notnthe one for me.
