Quality part

Fits well to Sram brakes. I see no difference in quality. So why pay more? plus: nice red colour plate As semi metalic compound, they can be a bit louder in wet.

They Seem To Work Well

These pads seem to be good, not that they'll get the most severe of workouts on my mountain bike. The stop well, are quite and reasonably priced. I don't know how they stack up against the Sram originals, but t hey work ok for me.

Great value

It's early days but these pads seem to do the job well enough. They do seem to squeal a bit though.

got a set put on my 580 a year ago and only just need changing. exelent wear and dependable stopping power.


Bought these for front and back of my bike and they are horrible. They screech continualy regardless of wet or dry condition and all they seemed to do was buff my discs to a shine rather than aid my stopping. Pay more money and get nukeproofs. These are very poorly made

Thank you for your feedback regarding the pads. Normally, as long as the correct bedding in process has been followed and the dics were clean, there should be on issue. If this was the case, there may be a fault or some contaminate got on to the pads.

Used as an alternative for original Riverside 500

Annoying to not find the right kit for Riverside 500 (including the pin)...

Brzdí dobře, ale přehřívají se

Brzdí dobře, ale po chvíli se hodně zahřejí a začnou smrdět. Potom už moc nebrzdí. S jinými semi-metalickými destičkami jsem tenhle problém neměl.

Dobrý den, Vážený zákazníku,

velice děkujeme za Váš čas, který jste věnoval recenzi tohoto produktu.

Je nám líto, že jste nebyl s kvalitou brzdových destiček spokojen. Z toho co popisujete se pravděpodobně jedná o vadný kus případně špatnou montáž.

Ráda bych Vás proto pozvala na Vaši nejbližší prodejnu, kde můžete nechat kolo servisovat u našich kolegů. Brzdové destličky by zkontrolovaly a případně by Vám je vyměnili.

Omlouváme se za komplikace.

S láskou ke sportu,


Man merkt den Preis

Ich habe die Beläge für die hintere Bremse ausprobiert. Das Bremsverhalten ist ähnlich wie bei den originalen Belägen von Avid. Der einzige Unterschied ist, dass diese Beläge furchtbar laut quitschen beim bremsen. Ich werde sie nicht nochmal kaufen.

Super Bremsbeläge

Bin sehr mit der Bremsleistung zufrieden. Die originalen von Avid halten auch nicht länger! Kauf ich immer wieder.

Super Bremsbeläge

als aktiver Mountainbiker habe ich größeren Verschleiß an Bremsbelägen und habe jetzt schon den 3ten Satz dieser Beläge verbraucht und ich bin sehr zufrieden

Muy económicas

Funcionan y se adaptan bien pero se desgastan pronto, en especial en invierno.

Pastillas muy gruesas

No se si es problema de mis pinzas de freno, pero las pastillas no se pueden separar lo suficiente del disco y aunque no retienen la rueda produce un chirrido por rozar con el disco, por más que he intentado ajustarlo, no deja de sonar, espero que se gasten un poco pronto.

1 pair of brake pads 1 spring metal pin not included

Breaking in the pads: essential before starting your ride

You should try braking quickly a few times on a dry, flat, obstacle-free surface. 3 or 4 sets of 10 dry, intermittent stops are enough to break in your pads. Dry braking will wear down the pad a bit. Release your brakes for a few dozen seconds between each set of stops in order to let them decrease in temperature before starting a new series of 10.

Be careful of glazing

If you brake continuously or not enough, this can glaze your brake pads. Rather than crumbling, the brake pads melt. This will leave a thin layer of melted silica and metal on the top of your brake pad, making it less effective. If this happens, don't throw away your brake pads as they can still be revived. A few short, sharp squeezes of the brakes should wear the glazed layer and make your brakes work again

Anti-glazing tip

If the problem persists despite several short, dry stops, lightly rub your brake pads with sandpaper.
