    I have not use those brakes, but the cut out's on the AiRotors eat pads very quickly on any brake, then destroy organic ones in a flash.

    Why was it necessary to start a new thread asking the same question?

    Yes. It will destroy softer pad compounds.

    Do these discs eat the sintered pads too?

    I run those rotors with Avid J7's. I've used both organic and sintered pads from various mfgrs. They work great and they don't eat pads.....run them in New England and we had plenty of rain last year.

    You are lucky, I have been running them for around a year and they go through pads for in a short period of time for me. I can destroy a set of organic very quickly, they tend to break off in chunks. I ride in dry Colorado conditions, with occasional snow. FYI my Ashima contact recommends using sintered pads only

    Except for one short TRIAL I always use sintered pads.

    edit: trial not trail
