Good

These pads were very noisy at first but work well and have calmed down after a couple weeks of riding

Works great with my Enve wheels.

Had a lot of brake squeal at first, but once I did a better toe-in as per Enve, rarely get a few squeaks now. These Enve wheels with the textured brake track slow down so much better than my old wheels with the smooth brake track. Pads wear about normal for carbon wheel pads.

The only choice

The only option in my mind, they are a huge improvement over the previous model.

A must for using with your textured ENVE carbon wheels, nothing else works

I ride almost daily and over one month did 27 rides, about 900 miles of hilly back roads and over 51,000 feet of climbing and descending. I have to de-glaze the break pad faces weekly. They hold up, other secondary market pads just melt on the ENVE carbon rims, so you have to have these to safely ride with ENVE carbon rim wheels with the textured brake surface. It's a high maintenance brake pad but you have to do it or you don't stop and no one will ride with you because you brakes squeal so bad is you don't de-glaze them with a file or course sand paper and wire brush.

Just as good as stock Campy, but for ENVE

Stops the bike. Keeps your warranty. What else do you need?

I can stop!

These are great with my enve wheels. The brake track on the enve's make an interesting noise while braking but I feel confident with these. The compound is soft and the wear is pretty quick. Since safety is important i'll be buying these again.

Good braking but noisy until bedded in

I can't compare these to others but they do squeal loudly under hard braking when new. They provide enough braking, so I learned to rear-bias braking force and minimize the noise. The rear didn't seem to squeal as much anyway. As they wore to the limits, they braked better with less noise. They're on Dura-Ace 9000 brakes which have no adjustment for toe-in. You might get some conical bushings and try toe-in, but then they might wear faster to the limit line at the inward point. I recommend letting them bed in using the brake alignment as-is (near parallel).
