Pads are blue. Probably Shimano.
Any chance these blue pads would be SwissStop?

I would try sanding them down to remove the black layer and see if they're OK again after that, or if it happens again. I will readily admit that I have zero experience with carbon rims with basalt brake tracks...

Looking at getting some masks for prolonged usage this winter as COVID surges and we head indoors. All the sports type (mizuno UA adidas etc) seem to be sold out. What are you finding to be a comfortable washable mask solutions? cheers
best mask is the N95
or make your own using a cotton bandana ( much more easier to breath then them pollen mask )

think that is just crap that got cooked through heat build up. Sandpaper off the pads, rub the brake track clean with cleaner and alcohol and you should be good.
