Fastop A2Z Sintered brake pads review

Asbestos-free, effective brake pads

BikeRadar score4/5

These gold-coloured sintered pads are reassuringly sold as containing asbestos-free, organic material. 

There are the usual claims of superior heat resistance and high efficiency compounds, and they worked fine once bedded-in. They have a built-in wear indicator to let you know when they need changing, handy if you check your pads regularly.

The basic packaging has no bedding in or fitting tips, thogh. There was a little bit of wet weather squeal during bedding-in but that soon disappeared.
