To Reynolds engineers, it was logical to develop brake pads in conjunction with their rims due to the critical role that both play in braking performance. Made of proprietary polymer compounds, Reynolds’ Cryo-Blue pads are designed to work specifically with the CTg brake track. Together, the combination of brake track and pads reduces rim temperatures by up to 220° F versus other manufacturers’ carbon-specific pads.
Cooler rim temperatures giving riders enhanced braking performance; better brake modulation and improved rim durability in every braking situation.
Reynolds Cryo-Blue Power Brake Pads, shaped in a sleek, tapered design, with a 44% larger braking surface than the original Cryo-Blue Pads. The surfaces of the pads have six angled slots that move air and water through them, offering increased cooling in dry conditions, and increased control in wet conditions.
While the original Cryo-Blue Blue Pads still exceed Reynolds' standards, the Cryo-Blue Power Brake Pads set the bar even higher. Testing validates that the new Power Pads deliver 33% increase in dry conditions stopping and 42% increase in wet conditions stopping.
