    Magura Marta brake pads?

    I'm riding four days a week in SW Idaho and I'm wearing out a set of Marta performance brake pads on my front brake in less than two months. Has anyone used the Marta endurance pads? I've looked around online and haven't seen them for sale anywhere.....

    I really like the modulation and power of the performance pads but I would rather not have to replace the pads so often.

    The cheapest I can buy the Magura Marta performance pads is for $20. I'll be buying at least 4 sets next time.....

    The endurance pads are all that I use in my Martas. You can get them online from Magura USA, but you could probably get them cheaper through a bike shop.

    The modulation is still really good with endurance pads. Although, the Marta are lightweight XC brakes and weren't really designed for extended downhills.

    Yeah......I know that now.

    I would still keep the Martas on my Hammerhead, but I should have waited and purchased the 04 Magura Louise for my Quasi. Live and learn.......

    Found an outlet for the endurance pads online this morning!
