- Replacement Pads – Uberbike / Superstar ???
Until 3 months ago I’d used Superstars sintered pads for 3 years with no problems and had been entirely happy with them.
I wonder if something’s changed though, because after fitting new formula 1-piece discs I was plagued by horrible noise and weak power from both an existing set and a newly fitted set of S/S sintered pads.
I’ve now swapped to the Uberbike Race Matrix pads and all is good again.Posted 3 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
It wasn’t exactly like I’m used to with glazing- more inconsistent and always changing. But it did feel similar at times. I think the main thing was, they weren’t getting used any different from the pads I replaced them with or the pads I’d used in previous years and none of those misbehaved.
I liked them for the more local rides I did mind. I like Uber in general, they seem to do the job Superstar do, without being Superstar, which is all I really want 🙂Posted 3 years agoYetimanMember
I recently tried some Uberbike Race Matrix pads after seeing a glowing write-up on here, but I don’t think I’ll buy them again. The performance is fine, fitted to Formula R0’s, but they aren’t any better than the cheaper kevlar Superstar pads they replaced. I also had to take a Stanley knife to them to trim the edges of the pad so the spring clip would fit, as some of the pad material and glue was spread over the backing plates. It might just have been a bad batch though, considering a lot of people on here seem to rate them, but I’ll probably stick with Superstar sintered and kevlar pads.Posted 3 years ago
