Stop with confidence! If your brakes are starting to feel weak, it may be time to replace your pads.

Type G pads are non-finned brake pads to suit Shimano 2-piston brakes. The same pad shape is available in Type J which is the finned version of this pad.

Type G pads are available with a Steel backing plate (S), Aluminium backing plate (A) and Titanium backing plate (Ti).

The latest G05S-RX is said to have 50% better wear than the previous G03A and G03S models with improved modulation and even quieter operation. The previous G03A and G03S pads were a newer resin compound that had 40% longer wear resistance than the previous G02A and G02S pads. Soon, the pads will never wear out!

Pro Tip: Leave your old pads in place and use a large flat screwdriver or small spanner to gently push your pistons back in before you replace your pads. Don't forget to bed-in your new pads before you go riding trails. Simply ride around with your brakes half on for about 5 minutes and pedal hard!
