Swisstop Black Prince vs Yellow King (for Carbon wheels) - which is better?

Postby Ross » Sun Mar 25, 2018 7:58 pm

Which pads are better and why (pros and cons of each please)?

I currently have two different bikes with two different carbon brands of carbon wheels, one has Zipps with Yellow King pads and braking is awesome, only slight downside they leave a slight yellow residue on the wheels. Brakes are DA 7900.

My other bike has Roval carbon wheels with the standard Specialized/Roval pads and they seem very hard wearing (ridden ~12,000km and look to have plenty of life still) but don't pull up very well in comparison to the Yellow Kings so thinking of replacing them with either Black Princes or Yellow Kings. Brakes are Ult 6800.

I'd recommend the Shimano carbon pads.
Im serious.
They are great. Half the price of the ones you are looking at.
