Horrible? We don't even know what rim surface he's wanting the yellows for.

I'd assume carbon as per the title, and as they're carbon specific compound.
What are your thoughts Pawnii (or others) I've been reluctant to try rubber on the carbon clinchers I have?

Change of plans...I am now looking for Reynolds Assault Blue pads. The Swisstop has just ruined my front Reynolds' rims yesterday at Kurrajong Hills.

It was the only difference. I always used Reynolds pads. Same bike same rims, same mountain travelled but different pads yesterday. Burned rims.

Deduced to swisstop yellows most probably causing it. Looking at forums...looks like heat dissipation is not its strong suit for long descents and I am not alone in experienced this........

It really depends on which carbon rims you're running. I've had great success with Yellows on Edge 1.45 carbon clincher rims.
I've also used Corima Red cork pad and find they are better in the dry but terrible in the wet. Also, i found performance deteriorates dramatically after 2000kms with cork.
Over the years i've heard Yellows are not suited to some rims and cork pads are better. I've also heard the total opposite for the same setup.
Half of my mates swear by cork the other half swear by Yellows.


IMO the best thing to do is to find out what the best suited pads for a particular rim/wheel set.
It's a little bit trial and error maybe. (can be dangerous and expensive though)

Sorry to hear. Nothing scares me more than brake/rim failure while descending.
What's wrong with the rim? Pics?
