The Green pads, are they swiss stop? Mine seem to last forever. In 2010 I was in the UK, and did a couple of trips to France, and not a whisper out of them.

The roads were very wet and I had just swapped the carbon brake pads to my normal pads after changing back to aluminium clinchers for the wet weather.
They are the SRAM Force brakes with those green pads. I have never experienced such high consumption in one morning. Pads are worn over 2500km.
Does anyone have similar experience and reason on this?

(Softer compound pads perform better, but at the expense of durability. They're also less abrasive on the rims.)
