Kevral pads will works on resin only shimano rotors?
ceramic ride in south asia so much rain
I used resin pads always now I want to try ceramic I put it on and it felt 🤢 so I'm going to try it out for a week and give feedback, I have resin only rotors and I asked my local bike shop which is called giant cycles which is the same as my bike, they told me it should work fine on the resin only rotors.
Part 2 is where? Thanks
You still haven't finished this and it's been over a year now
which is water proof ??
Hey man I'm in the same boat right now. First of all I have an e-bike and the rotors that came with the bike say "resin pads only" . I ordered the semi metallic and ceramic brake pads but need to change the rotors because the shitty ones that came with my bike can only handle resin pads.... I guess My question is... Which brakes do you recommend for e-bike going 30mph at all times... I need something that will have stopping power and will last longer than the other. Thanks
When do you plan to release the next video? I'm quite interested in the copper free pads' performance.
Copper free vs Kevlar...
I'm using Kevlar from disco brakes and it's smooth as silk braking with great braking force, and it is really quiet.
I recently saw one Enduro rider that recommended mixing compounds! He puts one organic pad and one metal pad into each of his calipers. Sound interesting. Perhaps you'd try testing that to see if there's any real advantage?
Break in period for every compound. How much they squeal, in dry and wet.
How powerful the brakes are, in dry and wet.
copper free vs Kevlar on your xc bike test with super steep but supper slow downhill, 40km/h braking test on difrent ground types, how they work in wet conditions and in muddy conditions
In the U.K. I've only come across sintered, organic and Kevlar. Kevlar didn't work for me glazed too easily when bedding them in. Using semi metallic in my xt m785 brakes and work great.
Perhaps some observations on how abrasive the pads are? Wear on the rotors, and what type rotor.
unless you pay over the odds for pads , we get the ones given to us out of the box over the counter . PS : I use cable type , they WILL throw you off the thing
Wanna see or know how each would perform in both dry and wet conditions.
I dont know why im watching this. I have a Giant Revel, which has rim brakes and it absolutely sucks.
I replace new brake pad on my Cannondale Lefty recently, now I can feel my bike shaky when brake. What went wrong, is it the new brake pad?
I didn't know you had a ebike!!! This may be hard to test but I like quiet brakes in wet and dry conditions. Maybe test or mention a couple you would suggest. Riding in the Pacific NW often when my pads get wet, then dry from brake heat they get noisy. I'm not so worried about life and power (just grip tighter!) Also can spinning your rotors the wrong cause more noise. (\ . /)
Friends, this is just a wrap-up of a huge test, I've been doing for over a year. Do NOT put your brakes to such an extreme and DON'T spray hot brakes with the water!
Good test but thumbs down just for the use of an ebike
I'm on a Trek FX 3 2021 with Shimano RT26 Ice Tech 160mm 6 Bolt Rotors, matched with Shimano B01S Resin Brake Pads. (Resin only stated)
If I wanna improve braking performance, can I swop to Disco Brake Pads, namely the Ceramic Hard & Soft compounds, & the Kevlar type without any need to change the Rotors?
Live in Singapore, mostly equatorial weather, hot, humid climate, where it often rains from November to January. Ride mostly on pavements & tarmac roads.
Often carry some weight behind, so effective braking is a concern.
Hey! Love your videos! This one is SO important! So, are Disco brand pads the best? Where do I get them? Are you sponsored by Disco? What other brake pad brands would you recommend?
I have SRAM RS Guide brakes/calipers.
Hey! I love your videos!
So, after watching your brake pad test, I ordered 2 complete sets (8 pads) of (British) Gorilla ceramic mtb pads. The price was very reasonable, about $40 U.S. for 2 sets. I was quite happy with the performance of the pads after bedding them in.
My problem is I believe I have contaminated the front pads with a spray solution designed for applying vinyl decals.
Do you have any good methods for cleaning possibly contaminated pads?
Just got some Discobrakes Ceramics on advice from this video. The stopping power just after bedding them in is incredible.
I also used this tip of rubbing the pads under water before installing them - https://youtu.be/piWBVDh1pTE?t=290
i don't have any brake pads i usually just use my face
Thank you! Gonna get myself some ceramic pads
You didn’t mention resin
Okay its time to order ceramic
hello! I wonder what's the computer bike you are using on this video, looks nice!
You also didn't change rotors between pads so as you changed materials more and more times the percentage of maximum power possible by each pad would also decrease
Great video, were the ceramic pads the hard or pro version from Disco Brakes?
Thank you! awesome testing!!
I’m using tektro pads on new Ebike. They sound like a toilet flushing after only 20 km. Have you ever heard a sound like this before? See my video ‘disc brakes sound like they have their own plumbing’ I had them Replaced with jagwire semi metallic pads and so far, after 35 km, no noise.
Stopping distance isn't so much reliant on brake pad friction, but rather tire friction. You can have the most powerful pads in the world, but you'll still lock up your tires.
In other words, disregard resin?
Whick break pads have the longest life span becuase i brought some resion ones and they lasted me about 4 mounth to the point that they dont work anymore and to replace them they r 10 quid a pair and that is a lot of money to me because i still in highschool so which break would be best i need some that have a long life span and that are good at stoping please help me
I heard ceramics brakes are good but is it true they wear out quickly? I'm not a regular biker, I don't know which brakes to go for. At the moment its factory brakes (resin). These have been contaminated and making a nasty noise. Stopping power is bad. I'm thinking kevlar or ceramics.
What are you wearing mate? Look like a clown all you need is the red👃.
Would get more views is you had the nose!
Can someone tell me the songs at 1:56 and 4:47?? If you know one of them tell it as well
The difference in the results, reflects the way that you ride the bike 2-3 meters before entering the breaking zone. If you did the same for all of them, the results would have been the same (WIth MAGURA). Watch closely again....
OU SUA DESGRAÇA VOCÊ TA SENTADO E PRA LEVANTAR O CORPO Q A BICICLETA SOBE PRA RL NE GRINGO DO FAZ MERDA VELHO PUTA QUE PARIU
I'm just starting out but on a loose train it comes down to tires ? How about do same test on a dirt ? Unless your trails are all asphalt...
Very decent comparison! By the way what are the songs in this video? Can someone tell me please???
I just received in the mail my set of Magura "race" pads. So I searched YouTube to see if someone dived deep into the comparison.. I got close. I still wonder if I should keep the "performance" pads or use these "race" pads.
Shift your weight back while braking and you’ll be able to grab way more front brake. You’re just dead sailoring for every pass. It’s consistent, so I guess the test is still valid... but if you want to stop fast, scoot your butt back.
They have even more aggressive pads. Magura race pads
I love this channel
Suspension locked out vs open braking.
Then once you've established the shorter stopping distance setup, you do rider and apparel/PPE only weight VS adding chassis water bottle, plus 2 bottles in a backpack with snacks, tube and multi tool braking.
Next, ascending seat position VS descending seat position brake test.
You had the right idea but I don't think testing brakes and stopping power on pavement has any solid relevance on a mountain bike. Unless of course a particular mountain bike rider is going to ride mostly on the pavement. Testing on pavement rather than dirt skews the results, because there is more grip, I.E a higher coefficient of friction between the road surface and the tires on pavement vs dirt.
sorry to be a downer. if you watch, he is pedaling harder with the old brakes then the new brakes. is there a difference? maybe not 2 feet.
review this bike!
This says to me that Cannondale is out of touch with the market.
Round about 16 Percent more Power with other Pads. I would say, more with special Pad-Set and Company and so on...
What compound is the best for lasting
Great Video/Test nice to see how sram compare to a good Brake
Any tricks to get the speed sensor in a shimano rotor ? I can only find the direct mount ones with the spot for it. Thanks. Dig the content
We strongly recommend testing a Structure SCW1 in a comparo of this type. Pad type, rotor size, piston count, and suspension type contribute to big differences from bike to bike.
what has the strongest bite over all any and all conditions? semi-metallic?
do sram pads fit into shimano?
Having watched this video, I'm interested in switching from my current organic to metallic pads next, for more power (though I'm in mostly-dry NorCal). When swapping pad compound, I saw a SRAM video saying that I need to replace rotors together (so that they don't get mixed together): https://youtu.be/xTGHdFt5Y-s (at 1:50~). Is this really recommended/necessary? Just wondering f this is rather a nice-to-do theoretical advice or a must-do practical advice?
Is it true? do you have to run a specific rotor for the sintered metal brake pads?
I've been using Resin Pads in this very rainy south Florida Summer and they make so much noise when dirt/mud gets in there. I'm looking forward to trying semi-metalics next.
You know what's better at drawing out heat than steel or aluminium... copper.
When I'm shredding downhill and rocks flying I don't really give a flying fcuk about brake noise. I wanna be able to stop. That is why I use metallic. Btw it's not even noisy at all if it's not dirty, but it just bites like a great white. I love it.
is there any difference in fading between resin pads with cooling fin vs metallic pads without cooling fin?
Did MTX ever send you those organic pads to try?
So organic is quieter but not silent correct? I still hear howl sound from Organic pads on road bike sram rotors.
тормоза придумали трусы!
I like my brakes to make a little noise on the downhills. It means hikers can hear me and I don't need to ring the bell.
Metal for sure. Way longer lasting and with everything adjusted properly i've not really had too much issue with noise.
In Zagreb when it rains metal pads squeek like the train. That is why I use resin here
I’m a morbidly obese borderline alcoholic father. I run organic and they work great and stop my big fat ass @250lbs on my hard tail no problem.
Hi, could you please tell me what pads are good for storm rotors? Mrtalic semi or organic?
Organic have metal shavings? Mine do and say organic?.? Anybody know?
Sintered typically has better performance under high heat and will fade less. If you're downhilling long descents, you want sintered. Sintered also has better initial bite. Yes they do squeal, you just get used to it. Sintered pads on motorcycles and cars squeal too.
Got some code rsc’s on my Fezzari pretty sure they are sintered pads. They loud as hell. Sounds like a goose under water
Do hope rotors work with metal pads?
