Black brake pad availability?I have a set of Cosmic Carbon UST wheels. When will the black brake pads become available? The supplied yellow pads create a lot of dust and leave a yellow ring around the wheels. There is mention of black brake pads in a Mavic reply here, stating that they will be available in 2018. Also, is there another type of brake pad that can be substituted? Say Swiss Stop's Black Prince or Flash Pro pads?

Excellent improved braking over yellow padsI have been using the new and improved grey brake pads for the last few months after using the yellow Mavic pads since 2016. They are a definite improvement for me in the following ways:
1. Yellow dust issue: This was never a huge issue for me with the yellow pads since in my previous experience, the yellow dust would stop after a few hundred kilometers. However, I have seen this enough in other reviews that it is worth mentioning that this issue is completely solved with the new brake pads.
2. Brake squeal. This was a major issue for me with the yellow pads. I am happy to report that the squealing has gone away with these new brake pads. Of course, proper installation and bedding of the pads is required.
3. Stopping power. There is a slight improvement in braking with these new pads. It is not a huge improvement but it is good to experience better braking. I have only been able to test this under dry conditions. Not sure how much of an improvement in braking (if any) there is under wet/rainy conditions.
Thank you Mavic for improving your brake pads for carbon rims. It definitely elevates the experience of using Mavic wheels now that the squealing is mostly gone. Much appreciated!!

Poor qualityHeavy dusting and excessive wear. My Zipp 303s with the Zipp compatible pads last 3 times as long and don't have the dusting problem that these do.

Squeal!I find these brake effectively but squeal excessively when the rim/brake interface warms up on big downhills. Toeing in helps a little, but not much.
