Brake pad compatibility


  • No, the top ones are inserts and the 105 calipers come with non replaceable pads - i.e. the pad material and the screw into the calliper is one unit.

    Yes, they will fit. The 105's pictured have replaceable pads. But I recommend getting some Koolstop brand "Salmon" pads for the dura ace or Swisstop "Green" or the newer more expensive "Blue" for dura ace pads. Better stopping power in wet and dry and a little less abrasive to your rims. As long as your rims are alu brake tracks any of these will work.

    Yes they will fit, the picture of the 105 black calipers is misleading, look at the silver ones and you can see the pads are replaceable.
    He is not the messiah, he is a very naughty boy !!
  • Cheers guys. I know that my pads are replaceable, it was just that the "Dura Ace 7900" in the name of the pads was misleading.
