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 Juicy3,5,7 and Ultimate brake system

Rated 4 out of 5 by maxgnarcore Decent quality pads
Have tried most of the aftermarket Juicy pads and these are quite good. Not astounding but then again not awful like some of them. They get off to a good start because they actually fit in the calipers without having to file bits of metal or scrape off paint. They slot into place with a reassuring 'click' just like the real Avid pads. Bedding in was straightforward basically just ride around for a bit and in use they are quite good. There is definitely more of a bite than some pads and they scrub off speed quite effectively but they won't transform your Juicys they still need a reasonable pull to actually slow down significantly but this is more of an issue with the brakes rather than the pads. The pads are also nice and quiet which I like. Overall they are decent pads with a bit more bite than some and although they won't transform your Juicys they won't make them any worse (unlike some!)

Bought for a customer job, reliable cheap pads, 'elite' compound were very fast to bed in, decent bite through wet and mud, didnt last as long as other brands

Rated 5 out of 5 by JasonLeBlanc Great pad
This is a great brake pad. Good stopping power even in the wet, easy to modulate braking with, and quite durable. One of my favorite qualities is that the brakes are predictable, they seem to behave quite similarly in all conditions. They do get a little squeaky in the really wet conditions but all sintered pads do that.

Со своей функцией справляются хорошо. хватает на 1,5 тыс км при использовании в грязных условия. Режим использования - круглый год. На спусках при влажной погоде склонны к шуму.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Crusher Don't buy these pads
I bought 4 packs of these Clarks pads before a trip to the Alps. When I tried to fit the first set it was clear that they (and the others) were not going to fit despite my brakes being Avid Ultimate's. Basically the pad bodies were very slightly too large (wide) and needed filing to fit by brakes callipers. This shouldn't be necessary if they are designed for a particular type of brake. Very disappointed and I wont being buying Clarks pads again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Outstanding in the wet
Average in the dry, outstanding performance in the wet. Not the best wear rate overall but worth every penny if you need top braking performance in extreme wet/muddy conditions.
