Kool-Stop Eagle Claw II - Non-Threaded

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.

  • Water grooves
  • Pad-Lock™ washer system
  • Available in Threaded and 2024 Aluminum Smooth Post

Specifications

  • Weight per pair: 40.4 grams
  • Overall length: 64.1 mm
  • Pad contact width: 10.3 mm
  • Sold as a set of 2 pads, enough for 1 caliper. If replacing pads on both calipers, purchase 2 sets.

Choose the Salmon over Black!
I have used the Salmon pads on my around-town Surly LHT and am currently using the black pads on my around-town rigid MTB.
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!

I have the salmon...
I have the salmon colored ones on the front of my commuter bike with cantilever style brakes. A big difference in stopping power in rain compared to my old brake pads. Before I would have start braking long before a red light. These will stop on a dime even when its coming down hard. Will definitely get these again.

These don't squeal.
Everyone raves about salmon Kool Stops for their amazing stopping power, especially in the rain. I myself have had excellent performance from salmon Kool Stops on machined sidewalls. But on old un-machined alloy rims (Arayas, Ukais) I get nothing but terrible squealing and chattering. I know there are a thousand ways to stop cantilevers from squealing. Sometimes the only way that works is to get rid of the salmon pads. Black Kool Stop pads performed beautifully while bombing down 2000 ft fire road drops on a heavy 1986 Fisher Montare. I'm in southern California, though, and wet conditions are rarely an issue.

PROS: Sturdy Design, Fade- Free, Great Stopping Power, Easy To Install

BEST USES: Road Biking, Mountain Biking

Improve stopping power
These pads made a profound difference in my braking ability. I have compared them against Aztecs and two different kinds of unnamed/no-name. These run a softer compound than the others, which creates more friction. I would assume that the Eagle Claw II's will have a shorter lifespan as a result of the softer compound, but after somewhere around 800 miles, I have not observed any appreciable wear. Even were I to have to replace them now, I'd be happy with them and go bck for more of the same.

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.

PROS: Inexpensive, Great in Mud, Great stopping power, Colors

CONS: none

BEST USES: All cantiliver brakes, Mud and dirt

I Can Stop Again!
I am ashamed to admit how worn I allowed my rear brake pads to get on my commuter bike. When I needed to change the tires, I finally noticed. These went on without fuss, and unsurprisingly made all the difference in the world.

pay attention to the word MOST...
After reading that these fit MOST bikes, as well as other sites hat have mentioned road bikes, I bought a couple pairs for my road bike. Unfortunately, I didn't try installing them until the night before my first intended ride and found out that due to the off center post, the pad does not clear the fork on the front. I hate that I am about to do it, but I will have to install them backwards until I can get a set that will fit. (My old brakes are way too worn to put back on.) The back ones seem to fit fine since the longer end would be away from the frame in the back.

PROS: Durable, Easy To Install
