The best features of sintered pads and the best features of organic pads, combined in one
Skip to view product specifications

SOS send help for those torn between sintered and organic disc brake pads in the form of these sintered/organic/sintered format pads.


The hard wearing sintered nose and tail keep the rotor clean and extend lifespan. A resin middle sucks up heat, increases initial bite and cuts noise, giving better modulation.


We’ve got both Shimano and Avid sets on test, and they’re performing better than the original pads all round.
