Recommend Some Pads?

FSA pads as stock on my Bianchi are rubbish. Tested 105's from other bike and they are loads better.

Before I order, can anyone recommend the best pads from experience?

Going to search about for options later.
 
Swisstop Blue are my goto pads got them on my Canyon (Shimano 105) and my Ribble (Campagnolo Veloce)

IMHO better than 105 use in all weathers and also find that there is no build up of KAK on the rims when I've been using them in the wet.
Cool. Cheers. What are they like compared to the Green version?

Thought they were a bit expensive, until I realised it was for 2 pairs. :smile:

Ready to order either the Swissstop or the Kool Stop Salmon.

Got a ride planned for tomorrow, so will test the 105's out front, but not bother with the back. Going to order the Swissstop later. Eithe Green or Blue. Cheers. :smile:

Swissstop Blue:

Stopping Power - 9
Longevity - 8
Modulation - 8

Green:

Stopping Power - 8
Longevity - 8
Modulation - 7

Looks like Blue then.
 
I see you mentioned them and therefore may have rejected them, but the koolstop salmon pads are very good.

I upgraded to Swiss stop green from stock fsa on my Bianchi. Very pleased with them especially in wet but can't compare with blue or salmon as never used them.
