Lifesavers

Quick delivery, straightforward install, and now these pads literally save my life every time I ride 10/10

An easy upgrade

by

These were a simple upgrade to the standard organic pads that came with my Guide R brakes. I’m a bigger rider and these give a bit of extra stopping power. Even on 180mm rotors. I don’t get and noise with them and I personally don’t notice any difference in initial bite.
Super simple to whip the old pads out and throw these in.
Also quick delivery from MTB Direct let me have them in time in order to run them in before the Cape to Cape

New brakes. Name a better feeling...

First pull on the front ankers and I was over the bars, face first on the deck. Big improvement over the metal on metal I was running. They have done their job well.

Purchased to replace factory pads. Had to choose between sintered metal or organic and went with these as they are meant to last longer and have less fade on long downhill runs. Stop just as well (and modulate just as nicely) as the factory organic pads.

Metal pads are the go!

I always swap out my resin pads for metal ones, apparently one of the cons of metal is the initial bite isn't as good as resin. I would disagree, if you bed your metal pads in properly the bite is awesome and there isn't any noise either when dry, you'll get a bit of squeal when the brakes are wet but that is irrelevant when you have great braking. I always team my metal pads up with Clarks floating rotors and the braking is nothing short of sensational every time.
This is the process that I follow and it works every time:
Hop on your bike somewhere with plenty of room. Pedal up to a moderate speed – 15km/h or so.
Sit down in the saddle and apply the brakes evenly, without skidding, until speed drops to a walking pace.
Release the brakes while you're still moving.
Repeat 10 times. You will feel brake power increasing with each repetition. Be careful not to skid as brake power increases with each repeat.
Perform the same set of steps, but increase speed to 25km/h.
Repeat 5-6 times.

Very happy with these pads.

Very happy with these pads. I had tried two other brands in my SRAM Guide brakes and they both squealed and vibrated. The SRAM pads were quiet from the start, and are still quiet.
