Nukeproof brake pads £12.99

Aftermarket pads

BikeRadar score3/5

These new pads from Nukeproof are available to fit most current disc brake brands and models. They’re slightly cheaper than the Shimano replacement numbers for the Saint brake pads we tested and they bedded in noticeably quicker.

Their consistency is good – even into long, draggy turns where you're trying to lose speed without locking up, they stay sharp. Heat dissipation is good too.

We’d say that they just edge it over the Shimanos in wet and greasy conditions. Wear seems to be about the same with the standard replacements but we’ll keep you posted. Otherwise, we’re impressed so far.
