Swissstop offers the best braking performance in all conditions for all types of bike. BXP is the latest aluminium rim compound providing high performance for alloy wheels. Improved power and modulation with excellent dry and wet weather stopping power. Swissstop say “Non sticky predictible linear (non-grabby) feel provides improved modulation, power and braking in all conditions.”
Strada says: however much fun it is to blast down the road it is important you have full confidence in your brakes. The pads fitted as original equipment on your bike (yep, even Dura Ace and Super Record) are quite hard wearing which means they last a long time but are pants at stopping you and also lead to increased rim wear as you squeeze them harder hoping they will stop you in time. Strada recommend fitting a replacement set of Swissstop BXP pads for improved rim life and improved braking performance. Ben tested these in the Alps this summer and was really impressed by their performance.

Swissstop say “Every brake pad has a decisive impact on brake performance, particularly in wet conditions. Improve your brake performance with the new BXP compound. The good brakes you already have become better and more dependable. When used with the appropriate rim material brake performance easily complies with the DIN 79100 standard. In both the SWISSSTOP laboratory and in the field our brake pads are continuously tested and improved. Special compounds can also be developed and produced. For further information contact your sales representative.
To simulate practical use in the laboratory we us the most modern devices and dynamic test equipment available. With such equipment we are in a position to simulate a variety of situations, including environmental, workload and application. With this equipment we can test a variety of different rim and brake pad combinations. We can also perform both dry and wet condition tests.
Naturally practical testing is very important to us. It is for this reason that we equip selected individuals and teams with our products. We use feedback from these programs to in the development and improvement of our products.”
