    Magura Louise FR brake pads - Bikefridge Kevlar

    I need to stock up on more pads for my multi-sets of Louise FR's and I noticed Bikefridge's regular pads were well liked (from threads several years old). He has another compound - Kevlar - that I haven't been able to find any feedback on. Has anyone used these and can speak to how they perform?

    Of course, We always recommend OEM because that is what we test and the performance, endurance, heat production, rotor wear etc are a known factors. With an aftermarket pad, these entities are unknown and can be the cause of problems.

    Even something as simple as a slightly too large of pad back plate that can cause the pad to resist retraction and therefore drag etc..

    Good luck and feedback is welcome.
