Sintered with a high friction index. 2x longer lasting than organic
Guarantees steady braking.
1 pair of brake pads
metal pin not included
Breaking in the pads: Essential before starting your ride.
Try braking quickly a few times on a dry, flat, obstacle-free surface. 3 or 4 series of 10 dry, intermittent stops are enough to break in your pads. Dry braking will wear down the pad a bit.
Release your brakes for a few dozen seconds between each set of stops to bring their temperature down before starting a new series of 10.
Be careful of glazing
Braking continuously or not enough can glaze your brake pads. The brake pads don’t crumble, they melt. This leaves a thin layer of melted silica and metal on your brake pad, making it less effective.
Your brake pads can still be revived if this happens, so don’t throw them away. A few short, sharp squeezes of the brakes should wear off the glazed layer and make your brakes work again
If the problem persists despite several short, dry stops, lightly rub your brake pads with sandpaper.

These pads seem to be good, not that they'll get the most severe of workouts on my mountain bike. The stop well, are quite and reasonably priced. I don't know how they stack up against the Sram originals, but t hey work ok for me.
