    Shimano BR-M446

    Hi there

    I am running the Shimano BR-M446 calipers and the pads are due for a change. Do I have to order the Shimano B01S Resin Pad or is there a better brand around that will fit.....

    Cheers

    There's plenty of aftermarket pads available in this size, though I wouldn't know whether they're 'better' or not - I've always stuck to the B01S and found them good. Assuming you have RT51/RT53 rotors then just make sure any replacements you get are also resin/organic pads as the rotors aren't hardened and can't take sintered/metallic pads.

    Cheers mate, yeah I think I will stick with the factory pads.
