    Stock brake pads on aftermarket Elixr 3s are organic. Usually this translates over to OEM brakes as well. However, the bike manufacturer can specify metalics for OEM if they wanted to. Best bet is to look at the backing plate of the pad. If the backing plate is a gold or copper color they are metalic pads, if the plate is silver/gray in color they are organic pads. If the backing plate is black (not likely but possible) then you have organic pads with the aluminum backing plate, simply a weight saving thing.
