    Replacement pads for New Saint M810's

    Ive seen in a couple threads on here people mentioning that there is at least 1 aftermarket company making pads for the new Saint calipers, but I cannot find anything. I have checked:

    A2Z
    Kool Stop
    EBC

    None of them even have a listing for the new Saints. If someone is in fact making pads for these can you point me in the right direction? My originals are getting low, and theres no way im paying $50 per set for the D02S's, which is about the cheapest I have seen them.

    Hopefully someone can help.....

    I believe that the new saint brakes use the same pads as the older 755 series XT brake. Kool stop and ebc make pads for this application and they should be cheaper then the shimanos.,

    Superstar in the UK do them. I've heard that M4 pads can work too.

    No - not the same as XT 4pot/M4 . These can be made to fit but are smaller & rattle about

    The Hope XC4 are a bit bigger than the 810 pad, & with a bit of grinding about the egde are a better fit . I've been running this for some months & going well. ~1/3 price & better choice of compounds.

    I might have to try this then, as I discovered myself that the 755 pads will not work.

    What brand and pad compound do you like best?

    I've just checked out Nyquist's info about Superstar - they sure do make 810 pads - must be the first aftermarket source. I've just ordered a batch & even with postage is ~ 1/4 the price of original for me. The Hope xc4 pads I've used are the original Hope 'standard' compound.

    I found these to be good... http://www.discobrakes.com/?s=0&t=0&c=14&p=698&

    Considerably cheaper than the Shimano pad.

    Hi sorry, I have been away. So far so good and no issues to report. They are not breaking up and seem to be as good as the Shimano pad but can't be sure as the Saint is such a strong brake anyway.
