Loved them, and I only used them on my race bike. Sold that bike a while back, and found these laying in my tire warmer bag. Tire warmers just sold, now these are on the chopping block.

I use the CL59 in the canyons and on the track they are great for both, in my opinion. The stock brake pads seemed to loose their bite when I got them really hot.

I agree the stock pads lost bite when they got really hot, do these pads have lot of initial bite or a progressive feel?

They were progressive to me, but that is pretty subjective. Jab the brakes and its going to feel bitey not matter what pad you have. It was easy for me to modulate and trail brake all the way to full lean with these pads.

They are very progressive with a medium/soft initial bite and linear progression to full lock. That makes them very forgiving when panic braking.

The EBC double H pads I tried before these had a hard initial bite and then were softer until full lock. It is a matter of preference but my riding style suits the CL59.
