Our Shimano Brake Pads – 4 Piston come in two awe inspiring compounds, Ceramic and Metallic. These are a direct replacement for Shimano’s brakes that use D, H or N type pads. Plus they also work with several TRP and Tektro Brakes. See the list below for a complete list of compatible brakes.

Ceramic Pads:

  • Softer compound provides better initial bite than metallic.
  • Quiet, no really, they are very quiet.
  • Easy and quick to “bed in.”
  • Less brake fade than resin pads.
  • Not as strong in wet and sloppy conditions, but still provide great initial bite.
  • May not last as long as metallic, but lasts way longer than resin.

Metallic Pads (aka Sintered):

  • Harder compound lacks initial bite, but provides max stopping power under heavy load.
  • Long lasting.
  • Take a longer time to “bed in.”
  • Can be noisy if it’s wet.
  • Good heat transfer and better on long downhills.
  • Good for cold weather, mud and wet conditions.
