HED Jet Black Brake Pad Recommendations

For those that are running HED Black wheels what are you using for brake pads? Coming from full carbon rims and looking for improved braking performance, ideally in dry and wet.


I’m a big fan of SwissStop BXP compound pads for alloy wheels. Such good modulation.

Wasn’t sure where to post this but hoping someone can help.

I just bought a set of new HED Jet 6 black wheels and the quality control stickers are dated 2017 for one wheel and 2018 for the other. Seems very odd to me. Should I be concerned that they’ve been sitting in a warehouse for 2-3 years? Also, the front wheel is out of true.

Kind of disappointing after spending so much money.

Did you get them direct from HED?

No, purchased from MBS.
