- brakey pads…. cheapo ones….
need to get some more pads after spending the last two weeks in Vinschgau and what with winter coming up and all that…..
i threw away one set of Shimano metal pads as they were so freaking noisy and had relatively little stopping power.
what are your opinions on Clarks and Nukeproof pads in either organic, resin or sintered versions? thinking that 4 sets of Clarks organic at a 5er is better than one set of Shimano metal/resin pads.
brakes are the old and new SLX if that makes any difference.Posted 5 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber
Brake pads is one area I won’t skimp on any more. Of every component on the bike, brakes are like the most safety critical part.
I used 2pr of sintered pads from that cheap place that I won’t mention on here. Stopping power was naff compared to stock Formula organic, and in sub 300km in Morzine they were worn to the point that the metal spring bit was contacting the discs! Didn’t have time to throw them away! Had to do a roadside pad change just to get home.
If I’m gonna save £20 on a 2 grand bike, it’ll be somewhere else. I want the best, regardless of cost.Posted 5 years ago
