By controlling all of the ingredients in the rubber compound and by milling all of the rubber in our own factory, Kool-Stop is able to constantly improve the quality of our brake pads and maintain rim friendliness.
New models that fit the demands of the market are introduced regularly and compounds suitable for different rims are developed (aluminium, carbon, ceramic, etc.).
