questions about the

Kool-Stop Dura-Ace/Ultegra Replacement Brake Pad Inserts - Salmon

asked by: sthomp15
Will these work with my SCBR 530 pad inserts off my scott speedster s40
answered by: t.young
I'm not familiar with those brakes but I assume these should work. I'd check a local shop to see if the Scott pads are the same shape.
asked by: A Visitor
Better clarification? Will these work in Avid Shorty 6 cartridge? Screws into pad.
answered by: t.young
Shorty 6 uses road bike style shoes that slide into the holder. These will work.
asked by: A Visitor
Would these work with Tektro RX5 Mini V-brakes?
answered by: t.young
We don't have those brakes here, but I think that it should work to the best of my knowledge.
asked by: A Visitor
Will these pads fit Pinarello Most brakes?
answered by: t.young
I'm having a hard time finding any info on those brakes, I'd get in touch with your Pinarello dealer.
asked by: A Visitor
Do these fit sram rival brakes?
answered by: t.young
Yes, these will work with SRAM brakes.
asked by: A Visitor
I have the Tektro Alloy R520 brakes will the kool-stop dura ace ultra refills salmon work?
answered by: mlewis
Yes, that brake works with Shimano style brake pads.
asked by: A Visitor
Do these replacement pads come with new PINS?
answered by: canteau
This brake is designed for a Shimano style pad carrier that uses a set screw. These will not fit an Avid style pad carrier that uses the push pin.
asked by: A Visitor
want to replace my tekro 720s with these, but lost the little pin, do you have those?
answered by: canteau
This brake is designed for a Shimano style pad carrier that uses a set screw. These will not fit an Avid style pad carrier that uses the push pin.

If you lost the set screw, you will have to buy a set of pads that come with a new carrier.
asked by: A Visitor
Will these pads work with weinman 990 center pull brakes
answered by: mlewis
Sorry, I couldn't find what brake cartridges the 990 would have come with, but as long as its a Shimano compatible brake cartridge, then these should work just fine.
asked by: A Visitor
Will these work on TRP CX8.4 mini v brakes?
answered by: rmartell
Yes, these are compatible with TRP mini V-brakes. Thank you.
asked by: A Visitor
Will these fit Tektro 538 ?
answered by: mwirth
Yes, Tektro uses the same style pad inserts as Shimano. Thanks!
asked by: A Visitor
will this fit my tektro cr720 cantiliver
answered by: s.myers
Yes, Tektro uses the same style pad inserts as Shimano. I've got these pads on my CR720s and couldn't be happier with them.
asked by: A Visitor
Will they fit in my Tektro R580 calipers?
answered by: mwirth
Yes they will fit the R580's.
asked by: rgifford
Will these inserts work with the Koolstop Cross Cantilever shoes?
answered by: canteau
If you have the version that uses the Dura type pads they will.
asked by: A Visitor
Are these sold individually or by the pair?
answered by: smulder
These are sold by the pair.
asked by: wickedcold
Do these fit in the pad holder that comes with TRP EuroX canti brakes?
answered by: bhardy
Yes they do.
asked by: dpf...@gm....com
I have mixed components (Ultegra levers/105 brakes). Will these pads work with 105
answered by: smulder
You should be fine using either R55C2 or R55C3 type shoes for any of the last 3 versions of Ultegra or 105 brakes. The tech document for shimano brake pads is located at this link: http://bit.ly/glX6iC

Review of the Kool-Stop Dura-Ace/Ultegra Replacement Brake Pad Inserts - Salmon:
These brake pads have been an incredible upgrade to my braking. Paired with Yokozuna Reaction cables, the Kool Stop salmon pads upgraded my braking from squishy and squeaky to powerful and firm. My brakes are stock shimano something or other, defintely not Ultegra or Dura Ace, and these pads fit in there just fine. They were super easy to toe in, and did not cause any squeaking. There is a lip at the back side of the pad that is raised up slightly. This lip compresses when the brake is applied firmly, and does a great job removing dirt, water and grit from the rim. I will never use any other pads on my road bike. Its a very inexpensive way to upgrade your braking, highly reccomended.

Summed up: These brake pads have been an incredible upgrade to my braking. Paired with Yokozuna Reaction cables, the Kool Stop salmon pads

Review of the Kool-Stop Dura-Ace/Ultegra Replacement Brake Pad Inserts - Salmon:
Put these on my Cane Creek SCR3's. The original pads didn't work for crap. I was looking at replacing the entire brake. I tried these pads first, and they did in fact make a huge difference. I've only put about 200 miles on them so far, but I no longer think I need to upgrade my entire brakeset.

Wonderful pads, especially in the wet northwest. Really grab in the wet and work well in the dry too. Shifting all the bikes to these.

Review of the Kool-Stop Dura-Ace/Ultegra Replacement Brake Pad Inserts - Salmon:
I purchased these as an upgrade/replacement for my worn, stock Shimano pads. The Tree Fort staff confirmed that the pads would work with my setup (Ultegra levers, 105 calipers) and they installed without a hitch.

The Kool-Stops have a nice, firm feel and good stopping power in dry weather. They're formulated for wet conditions, but I haven't been out in the rain yet.

These pads paired with Gore Ride On cables give the performance of a more expensive group at a fraction of the cost.

Summed up: Inexpensive upgrade for all-weather braking performance.

Review of the Kool-Stop Dura-Ace/Ultegra Replacement Brake Pad Inserts - Salmon:
I installed these pads along with a new set of TRP EuroX canti's. While apparent differences in stopping power may be related to my new brakes, these pads provided excellent power and modulation in braking.

More importantly, these pads apear to keep my rims much cleaner than any other brake pads that I have ever used. There is less buildup of road grime/grit on my rims and embedded in the brake pads themselves than I have seen with any other pads. This was a welcome surprise to me, as I just had to replace my rims after wearing out the braking surfaces in wet and gritty riding conditions.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Just get these and be done with them. You don't need any other brake pads unless you're using carbon rims.

Seriously, they're that good. Stop on a dime, even when it's wet out.

Summed up: Stop wondering, these are the pads you want.

I've had some issues setting them up properly to eliminate squeal on my TRP EuroX canti's (more my issue than the pads'), but they appear to work great in all types of conditions.

Review of the Kool-Stop Dura-Ace/Ultegra Replacement Brake Pad Inserts - Salmon:
Stock tektro brakes wore out after 2500 miles on a Langster 2007 SS. Went to these and thoughts of a brake upgrade are gone. These make a big difference in the wet and even just "feel" better in the dry. I commute in DC on roads and trails and these pads fit the reality of day to day use in all weather. Not sure about durability- at 500 miles it seems like it will be slightly less than what came stock on the tektro's, but this is tiny dollars in the long run (and much less than the co-pay after you broadside a delivery van).

Summed up: Cheap upgrade.
