This Dual Compound model is the top choice for modern mountain bikes with direct pull brakes.
A major upgrade from the Thinline, the Mountain Pads have a double curved design that provides substantially more contact area. The Dual Compound design should help reduce "Shimano Squeal"
Note! Although Kool Stop's marketing folks think of this as a "mountain bike" item, these are actualy the very best option for all brakes that use threaded studs.
They may be a problem for front brakes on some bikes that have excessively tight clearance between the fork blades and the rim.
