Shimano Type J Brake Pad
Stop with confidence! If your brakes are starting to feel weak, it may be time to replace your pads.
Type J pads are finned pads to suit Shimano 2-piston brakes. The cooling fins help to disperse the heat so you get less fade under heavy, sustained braking. The same pad shape is available in Type G which is the non-finned version of this pad.
The pads are available in both Sintered - Metallic and Resin - Organic options.
- Less fade at higher temperatures.
- Perform better in wet conditions.
- longer lasting.
- Better for heavier riders and heavy, sustained braking.
- Less Initial bite
- Better initial bite.
- Tend to wear out faster
- Don't perform as well in in wet conditions.
Brake Compatibility: (Shimano 2-piston calipers)

Worth the extra dollars. If

Worth the extra dollars. If your wondering what the difference between Metal and Resin is... metallic tend to grab when hot, making you lock a wheel. Resin modulate more predictably, and rarely bite without you wanting them to. Some may disagree, they work best for me though in XC/XCM/Enduro.
Excellent braking power, however can't

Excellent braking power, however can't seem to get rid of the squealing under braking, even after bedding in multiple times.
