QUAXAR BRAKE PADS (2 pairs)
Quaxar's friction material works well in all conditions.
Enjoy a significant cost saving compared to SRAM or SHIMANO's original pads.
We couldn't tell the difference between SRAM OE (organic) pads and these in a back to back blind test (identical bikes with pads bedded in).
We have used these Carbon Organic pads for several seasons, but with no racing and more general riding through the winter of 20/21 we tried the Semi Metallic version. Whilst the Semi Metallic lack a small % of initial bite compared to the Carbon Organic, they last MUCH longer. They are a great option if you prioritise longevity over pure performance - and the difference is very minor.
Great performance, durability and price.
Exactly what we look for!
