i had the black ones and they sucked compared to koolstops. so just get some salmon koolstops or other bettererer pads( like plazmatic or heatstinks)

I think the green ones are a little better but not by that much.. When I ran them they made a lot of noise but otherwise they worked good.

toing pads in makes your breaks feel gummy and you need to pull harder to get your whole pad to touch the rim seems stupid

company doesnt have anything to do with it but i advise you to get koolstops the black eagle 2s are fine but get salmon if you can find em
