this pad on any caliper will be a significant improvement in both modulation and power. highly recommended.
despite the 'wet condition' designation i currently run them on 3 of 4 road bikes (the 4th having carbon rims w/swissstop yellow), including a front-only fixed-gear, and have done so exclusively for maybe 5 years / 20k miles? they are just pad inserts, so use them with whatever caliper / pad holder you fancy.
they are extremely easy on rims, at least in my mostly dry conditions. lifespan is a bit shorter than others, but they so kick the crap out of everything else in every other way that i really don't mind.
