    Wow, i have never actually heard of that happening. My avid pads have been fine.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Are you using the OE pads? I've seen the material separate with cheaper aftermarket offerings... Are you using any sort of cleaner on the pads?

    Perhaps you should try another brand... EBC, Koolstop, or Galfer.

    I had had the same exact thing happen to my avids twice, once while riding...lucky it was not on a big hill.

    I'd call up SRAM and let them know this is happening. They might flow you some free pads too.

    If it were one set... I'd say bum pads... but maybe you're overheating the brakes?

    I've seen it happen from overheating the stock pads.

    Organic or sintered? My stock sintered last an absurdly long length of time. I'm thinking of changing the front pads after 2 years just because...

    I doubt it is from the pads overheating,this last time it happened,i was only into my ride about 1 mile and that was all single track with hardly any brake usage at all till this small 10 MPH downhill right, left, combo . Thanks for the replys..
