The Mavic soft stone is designed to clean the rim sidewalls with UB Control, Ceramic or other finishes, of MTB, road and BMX wheels. This product is made to eliminate soft stone deposits stuck to the rim sidewalls in order to rediscover optimum braking performance. These deposits reduce the braking efficiency and interfear with the cyclist's safety. The Mavic soft stone can be used on a dry or wet surface, with soapy water or not, as a very fine sand paper. Using the soft stone on a dry surface is recommended as it lasts longer and produces better results. Cleaning the braking surfaces of dirt, aluminium shards, stones and other large debris is necessary before using the soft stone. Using the soft stone on anodized surfaces will fade away the colour.

Bought this to try and clean up my aluminium braking surface, after this winter it was virtually black with lots of dirt/pad residue embedded.
Got a bucket of soapy water, dipped the rubber in, and with started rubbing the braking surface with some force. The results were incredible, it removed all the gunk and made the brake track sparkle just like when it was new!
Only downside to this product is the high price, not sure how many uses I will get out of it. However, it does the job extremely well and is worth paying the price!!

Hace su cometido a la perfección. La he probado añadiendo un poco de agua en unas mavic crossride, y la superficie de frendo queda como nueva, eliminando la totalidad de las impurezas que había acumulado y los molestos chirridos al frenar.
Calculo que podría durar unas 10 aplicaciones (en una pareja de ruedas).
Su contra, claro está, es el precio elevado.
