Give your Shimano XTR, XT, SLX, or 2-piston brake system a refresh with new brake pads. Choose from organic (resin), semi-metallic, or sintered compounds depending on your riding style and terrain. These brake pads are a direct replacement for a number of Shimano systems, including:

  • Shimano XTR 2011+ 2-piston caliper
  • Shimano XT 2012+ 2-piston caliper
  • Shimano SLX 2012+ 2-piston caliper
  • Shimano CX75 mechanical
  • NEW Shimano Deore M6100 2-piston caliper

Each set includes pads and a spring to replace the brake pads on one caliper.

Semi-Metallic Brake Pads

Semi-metallic brake pads are an all-round solution for most common conditions, where brakes are not getting extremely hot. They work best for dirt jumping, cross country and lighter enduro rides with shorter downhill segments. They'll even be more than capable for downhill riders who aren't standing on the brakes all the way down, or for lighter riders.

With a high percentage of iron and copper added to the resin in the compound, semi-metallic pads offer a longer life and more heat resistance compared to organic disc brake pads. The metal compounds add longevity and the resin allows for the pad to have high friction against the brake rotor right away.

Because of this, you'll notice semi-metallic brake pads have a stronger initial bite when you begin to pull the brake lever. If you prefer your brakes to grab and feel strong from the start, semi-metallic pads should be your first choice.  


- Great initial bite - Wears faster than sintered
- Easy to break-in - Not ideal for adverse conditions (wet, mud, etc.)
- Quieter  



VERSATILE, ALL-WEATHER USE: Semi-metallic brake pads are best suited for daily urban rides, dirt, XC, E-bikes, trail and light enduro rides, where bikers are not pumping on their brakes continuously. Rides are more fun with the smooth and effortless braking mechanism. Enjoy quieter rides and less rotor wear compared to sintered counterparts.

PREDICTABLE PERFORMANCE: Bikers have the benefit of significantly better brake performance compared to organic brake pads. You have better peace of mind with consistent and stable performance to cover a wide range of applications. Semi-metallic brake pads tend to function better in colder riding conditions.

PRICE-PERFORMANCE RATIO: Semi-metallic brake pads offer the benefit of a comfortable, firmer brake pedal feel. They are a valuable solution to bikers who are looking for a safe, durable braking solution that does not break their budget.

DURABLE: Durable metallic construction along with Kevlar additive makes these brake pads long-lasting. Special iron and copper compound formulation gives better resistance to heat.

RELIABILITY & COMPATIBILITY: Experience highly reliable, fade-free braking performance on road bikes, touring bicycles, e-bikes, e-MTB cycles, and low impact mountain bikes. Non-asbestos construction further ensures biking safety. Made in Germany and tested by independent testing companies.

Usage Tips:

To get the most braking power out of your new semi-metallic pads, it is important to follow these steps to break them in properly.

  • Brake for 5 seconds while riding at a speed of about 7 mph. Repeat this process 3 more times.
  • Brake from about 20 mph with medium power and release before coming to a complete stop. Repeat this process 20-30 times. You should feel the brake performance increase. Let the pads cool between each stop.
  • Done - Ready for action!

Attention: To avoid glazing, sintered brake pads need a running in time without heat development. The first 200 brake applications should get done controlled under lower speed. This process helps to roughen up the surface of the friction material. Because of the high metal portion, sintered brake pads need a disc with bigger holes on the braking surface, to keep the surface of the friction material rough.
