Replacement pads for avid V brakes?

I have Avid V brakes that use this insert

https://www.rei.com/product/737412

and would like to try Kool Stop pads. What Kool Stop pads are direct replacement for these Avid pads?

Any other good compatible pads I should look into? How do I tell if a third party pad is compatible with the Wrangler II ?

Thanks,

Kam

The cartridge is standard so any v cartridge will fit. BBB brand pads if you want cheap. Koolstop has several different condition pads, try black which I think are better than stock and if you want better grip get salmon, a softer compound. See there web for details. good luck

Kool Stop Thinline Cantilever. AFAIK All Cantilever and V-brake pads and holders follow the Shimano pad interface so you can use any brand of pad with any brand holder. (I use Jagwire pads in Tektro brakes.)

I use the Kool Stop red, Salmon; I've never tried the Kool Stop black. I didn't care about the faster replacement due to wear, I want stopping power when I need it. The Salmon do wear much much faster than Tektro or Shimano pads but nothing in my opinion that's ridiculous for safer stopping distance. If I find they wear too soon, then I may consider trying the Kool Stop black pads.

These are Kool Stop's replacement pads for that type of shoe holder. I can recommend their red compound.
