These Swissstop Flash Pro Pads are very well known for their face-melting braking force. Your carbon rims will feel like brillo covered in tar. One man hit his brakes once and is still orbiting. And of course theyre yellow; the fastest color ever.

Strengths:    Well they do stop the bike.

Weaknesses:    Did you see how much these things cost? Holy crap! They don't last very long either.

Bottom Line:   
I was using the Swiss Stop yellows with some Bontrager XXX clinchers. Found out that it would void my warranty so I switched to the Bontrager corks. The corks were a little better in the rain but the Yellows were a lot better when it was dry. So the choice was void the warranty or effectively stop the bike. I chose to stop the bike. But if anyone asks, I will deny ever having seen the Swiss Stops. (Tip for SS wet braking; quick, light squeeze to clear the water, then crank down on them).

I guess if you can afford carbon wheels, then the price of these pads won't be much of a problem. For me, it was the price of the pads and the therapy to get over the feeling of being anally raped.

Update; The pads are working fine and my therapy seems to be working. I can stop my bike and I am not crying uncontrollably any more.
