Aztec launch patriotic brake pads

Aztec have been making brake pads for years. They make a impressively vast range of brake pads, so you can guarantee they’ll make some for your model of brake. It seems patriotism is back in fashion (did it ever go out?) as we’ve already seen the Selle San Marco saddle done in in the red, white and blue colours. Now though Aztec have jumped on the desire of the patriotic rider, with the release of the Tri-Compound Limited Edition brake blocks.

Only 500 are going to be made, we’re lucky enough to have 003, and yes we are stoked. But they’re not just good-lookers, oh no. You’ll be pleased in the knowledge hat ‘the pads were extensively pushed during testing and the results were impressive. There was a marked increase in both performance and durability over many standard and aftermarket replacement pads.’ Now, we can’t honestly say we’re going to stick them on a bike. They’re just far to pimp for that…

They retail for £24.95 and are available from
