Comprehensive instructions and good stopping from these pads


A posh mini CD box houses the sintered, gold coloured Aztec pads. This excellently presented package also has the most comprehensive fitting and bedding-in instructions of any of the test pads, which are really useful. The pads bedded-in quickly and easily with quietly good performance.


It’s nit-picking, but the slightly thicker backing plate (which may help heat dissipation) has a marginally smaller amount of pad material.
