different league to standard shimano blocks, especially in the wet where they came into there own. wear rate is to be expected for the stopping performance they provide

Provides an equal effective stopping power independent on weather conditions.
Its fit enough for daily usage as a commuter. They last a while.

These are a great product and a huge step up from the pads that came with my tektro calipers. They feel a lot softer and don't make that horrible scratchy sound that tells you your lovely expensive rims are being worn away. They're nice and grabby and give you much more confidence in controlling your speed. The only minor niggle is that the securing screws need a tiny (2mm) allen key, that doesn't feel as solid as the 3mm used in some other brands. These aren't the cheapest pads out there, but for just over £20 they're well worth the cash.

In short after 800 km with the green pads at the front and shimano Ultegra at the back, I can say that the swissstop are better and far better in the wet.
Don't bother with shimano and probably anything else. Those pads are the safe option and the slightly higher price is nothing to pay for the added safety you get.

I blast through massive sessions on the ergo at 60km/h knowing full well these pads will stop me if needed. No wear noticed at all for ergo training!

I regularly blast through traffic at 100kph knowing full well these pads will protect me from anything - except Swedish couriers.

I've ridden close to 15'000 urban km's on the black pads as I courier and I absolutely love them. They're INCREDIBLY powerful, especially when mounted on mini-V's. I blast through rush hour traffic at 40+ km/h and still feel totally secure knowing that I can stop in an instant, even in wet conditions.
Yes...like all Swiss products, they're expensive, but medical fees caused by an accident are far more so. Every time I try other cheaper pads such as Kool-stop (salmon), Jagwire, or TRP OEM and I always end up going back to these after having a close call with traffic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous More confidence in the wet
After the first wet ride on the standard 105 pads I ordered a set of the green GHP. Not been disappointed with the performance one bit. Took a few miles for the pads to fully bed in and they bite just as hard in the dry, but so much better in the wet. Wear rate seems good so far as well.
