It's hard to slay the mountain if you slay your bike while trying. Coming into a tight corner on technical singletrack is as much as an art form as it is your bike's capacity to slow you down. You need the right pads and the Kool Stop XT V Brake Pads are equal to the task. The new V-Type 2 insert just got heavier with 1.5mm more pad material than their original V-Type insert and still fits most all Shimano Style V-Brake holders. So by all means, slay away.
