First time purchase, like the feel better than Shimano pads, a little softer. They work well in the rain, cant speak to how well they wear yet.

I bought a new set of Dura Ace 9100 calipers and replaced the stock pads before even mounting the calipers. When it comes to safety I opt to spend a few extra dollars every time.

Threw these on my cross bike after killing my last set in a season. They went on pretty easily, though I did have to readjust everything since my others were worn so badly, but that isn't any fault of these pads. Pretty good stopping power on almost all conditions. They held up well to mud and ice so far. Long term we'll see how they do. Happy so far with them.

Stops well in the wet or dry. Feel is good and they don't seem to fade with heat on descents. I like these pads.

I use these to slow& stop my bike, wet dry. When I find something that works that's what I use. Last a season, ( 6000mi.) lots of stopping power when new, less as they age,but better than others I've used.

The SwissStop Flashpro Blue BXP Brake Pads were purchased specifically for a 100 mile riding event forecasted to be rainy. The meteorologists actually got it right. Though it wasn't a down poor, the roads were wet most of the ride.

The SwissStop Blue pads came through and performed as advertised. I found breaking in the wet weather not to be an issue as the SwissStop Blue pads did significantly out perform my old break pads. Breaking was so good that during down-hills I didn't worry about not being able to stop (in time). This allowed me to concentrate on my riding. -and that's a good thing!

My favorite pads
rating
by Zatoichi

Much improved stopping power and modulation over the typical OEM Shimano pad. Rode a bike with these installed in Ultegra 6800 calipers yesterday and was impressed once again with how well they work. My only complaint would be that the included setscrews are a bit cheap compared to Shimano. Well worth the money.

Just started using them on Ardennes rims, the Black version with the 'raised' braking surface. Have about 1,000 miles with no problems. Just today descended a steep 7 miles and braking was good,

Comparison to Original Black SwissStop FlashPro Pads
rating
by LoneRider
Cycling Enthusiast

My experience is that these Blue BXP pads give better modulation and better WET stopping power. The Original Black pads have better DRY stopping power and last longer but have a little less modulation. I use both kinds with SRAM brakes (Force 22, Red Aero) and TRP linear brakes (CX 8.4). I tend to use the Blue BXP on my road bikes in late fall and early spring when occasional showers or wet roads are common. I also use the Blue BXP on a rail trail cyclocross bike in wet conditions (Kool Stop Salmon pads for dry conditions).

The brake pads arrive safely just a week before my third ironMan 70.3 that I did in Oceanside California. California has pretty steep hills therefore they were useful and trustworthy, excellente brake feel

Great Stopping Power Even in the Rain

I just completed a 120 mile ride that included ascents and of course descents over 3 mountain passes here in Colorado. Several of these descents were in wet or rainy conditions. The BXPs performed flawlessly providing smooth positive control under the most demanding of conditions. They are better than the SwissStop black standard pads that I replaced them with. One thing I wonder about is if they have any negative effect on rim life or if they have any significantly shorter pad life than the standard black. There is also the question of heat build up, do they stop hotter or cooler than the baseline. I have no data on this but for stopping and control, you can't beat them (Running SRAM Rival brakes.)

I've been running Blue BXP pads in all conditions for the past 6 weeks and have been impressed by their stopping action and wear resistance. Even on slick, dirty roads, the braking is smooth and predictable. They also appear to be lasting longer than my cheaper go-to all condition pad, so the extra cost is probably worth it.
