    Alligator Brake Products

    Anyone have experience running Alligator hydro hoses or their high friction brake pads for shimano xt/xtr? It looks like the brake pads are metallic - any issues with excessive rotor wear or deterioration in braking performance?
    Thanks

    Their pads have worked great for me with xt's, both the metallic and ceramic. Some people have reported problems using the pads with Avid brakes.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    What rotors are you currently running with the alligator pads? I am currently running xtr brakes with Magura rotors and stock Shimano pads. Any idea if the alligator pads may not be suitable for the Magura rotors?

    Been using Alligator Semi-Metallics in my Juicy 5's for a couple years, no problems at all. Good durability and quieter than the stock Avid Sintered pads.
