Kool-Stop Eagle Claw II - Non-threaded
The Kool-Stop Eagle 2 brake pads are the ideal all-weather brake pads for your cantilever brake calipers. The Eagle 2 brake pads were the first to utilize a hardened reinforced steel internal backbone to keep your pad stiff, evenly distributing the pressure along the entire pad. Patented angled tip plows mud off the rim while the water grooves allow for premium brakes power even in wet conditions.
- Hardened and Plated reinforced steel backbone
- Patented Angled tip plow
- Water grooves
- Pad-Lock™ washer system
- Available in Threaded and 2024 Aluminum Smooth Post
- Non-threaded Post
- Weight per pair: 40.4 grams

Unless you're not planning to ride in any kind of wet conditions at all, I strongly recommend the Salmon version. I'm not sure what advantages the black would have, but the stopping power in wet conditions is much less!

They also seem to do a good job of clearing mud, sand, and dust. We have a clay-based mud that gets real slick in mud season, but these pads don't miss a beat.
In the interest of disclosure, I would move up to disks if my frame had the mounts, but as long as I have rim-brakes, I'll keep going back to these.

I use Kool-Stop pads everywhere I can and am generally very impressed with their performance, but these really didn't work much better than the decade-old Shimano stock pads.
