Kool Stop are the makers of the highest performance brake pads you can buy.
KS is a household name in bike shops & workshops, because their pads outperform the big names!
While your bike may have Sram or Shimano brakes, a Kool Stop brake pad will be compatible with your system. And you will find that OEM parts like brake pads will outperform stock parts.
This is because Shimano & Sram aren’t specialist brake pad manufacturers – they are makers of many things. But a specialist will make you better products. So if you are looking to upgrade your brake pads, KS is the way to go.
What is the difference between resin or organic brake pads and regular brake pads?
Resin or organic brake pads are typically made from a mixture of organic materials. Such as rubber, glass, and resin. These tend to be softer and quieter than regular brake pads. And provide better stopping power in wet conditions. However, they can wear out more quickly and aren’t as reliable in extreme heat conditions.
Regular brake pads, on the other hand, are typically made from metal or ceramic materials and can handle higher temperatures than resin or organic brake pads. They can also last longer than resin or organic brake pads, but can be noisier and less effective in wet conditions.
When choosing between resin or organic brake pads and regular brake pads, it is important to consider the conditions in which you will be riding and your personal preferences. If you frequently ride in wet conditions, resin or organic brake pads may be a better choice for you. If you ride in extreme heat or put a lot of stress on your brakes, regular brake pads may be a better option.
