Carbon rims what pads?

Just picked up a set of Hed stingers and glued on continentals for $600 2008 model. I think I got a great deal. What brake pads do u guys recommend? I had just aluminum wheels on my bianchi do you think I can just use my regular pads for a couple rides or would it damage my wheels? So excited about these wheels hope I made the right decision?

I'll ask my sister-in-law tomorrow. She works with HED.

I have never had carbon wheels but I would not ride them without the proper pads. Stopping is more important than going so for safety sakes I would not chance it.

If there is any crap at all from the aluminium wheels in your brake pads you "could" ruin the braking surface of your new wheels. If for no other reason I would get the correct pads with the correct compound to prevent any possible damage.

And yes, I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night

+1, pads are very cheap considering the alternative.

For future reference, I used the Swiss Stop pads on my tubular Zipps and they worked much better than the cork pads from Zipp.

And here's a review on the Black Prince pads from them. http://www.bikerumor.com/?s=black+prince
