Avid disc brake pads Juicy 7
So Iím probably close to needing new pads. I ride in dry dusty conditions. The stock pads (metal sintered) have worked well and lasted. However, Iím looking for opinions on whether the Avid organic pads would be better, or maybe the Kool Stop pads. Or any other opinions on different pads would be welcome.
Organics would be Ok in dry dusty conditions,they feel much more progressive than Sintered.I have to use sintered,organics last about a half a ride in the wet and gritty conditions i usually ride in.I never buy Avid pads,crap,squeal and don't last.I buy superstar sintered
Cheaper,last ages.Try their kevlar compound,i found them to be really powerfull,just not up to UK riding conditions
I have Juicy 5's and have found that semi-metallic compound works best. I'm actually using cheapo Alligator Semi-Metallic pads and unlike the stock Avid pads...these don't alert the entire trail network that I'm using my brakes.
I've actually had the best luck with organics, but that's just my opinion.
