    Best Pads for Rain?

    I'm using Dura Ace brakes and the pads that came with them.
    I've done a few rides in steady rain and I don't seem to stop as well as bikes around me.
    Any suggestions for good pads for wet riding?

    +1000. And they're also the best pads for dry conditions.

    You won't believe the difference. When I flip old ten speeds with steel wheels, Salmons are the only thing I'll sell them with. Sadly, they're not cheap.

    Best pads by alloy rims by far.

    My old - still in mint condition - set of Scott Mathauser 'Super Brake' pads cost me $20 back in 1982. Koolstop salmon are based on these. Factor in inflation and all and the Koolstop's are a real bargain.
    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
