Oh wow… yes! Wilderness Trail Speedmasters!!! Sweet! I’ll take two sets for my Klein Attitude 4-speed, full rigid in electric moss green!!

Had them and they where awesome stoppers but sucked to set up. My knuckles still hurt from that spring snapping them. WTB Speed Cantis. I had them on a Shite bike Softride. I did so like that bike despite what people say about it. Still riding hard tails 20+yrs later

1st generation dual compound black and salmon WTB pads. If they have raised WTB lettering and logo then 2nd generation but these are 1st generation. I molded them for Fred back in the day. You all know who Fred is?

Add dual compound pads to the description of the WTBs. They’re dirty, but you can see the color change. Great performance if you didn’t mind replacing rims more often. The pads were replaceable. Peel them out and glue in the new ones.
