Hi all, I recently replaced a pair of B01S pads which were fitted to my Voodoo Hoodoo 2016 spec. Pads went on, no problem but was wondering if these are best for the job? Are these still current spec pads as found them quite difficult to source. The current brake setup is Shimano Acera M355. Any advice appreciated.
Thanks

They are quite good for what they are.

I don't think you can get a better pad without upgrading to a different brakeset.

You may find minor differences in wear and performance, between Clarks or Shimano ones, as well as between Sintered, organic or resin.

The trick is to try them all to find what works best for you.

clark do replacement pads for shimano bo1s both scintered and organic... I've used them on mine... pretty good and relatively cheap to buy Smile
