    What type of pads come on the 2013 Trek Superfly 100 AL Pro?

    I've been reading about sintered vs. organic and realized I'm happy with what I have, so I just want to order exactly what I have. How do I find out what I currently have? I can't find anything with Google...

    I have Shimano XT's but I would imagine they don't all come with the same pads.

    Pull the pads out of one of the brake calipers, there should be a number stenciled on the back of one of them. G01A is the resin pad, G03S is the metalic pad. If there is nothing there then call Trek CS, they'll be able to tell you. Shimano aftermarket brakes usually ship with resin/organic pads. However I've seen OEM's come stock with metalics. It just depends on what the bike manufacturer specs.

    How did that work out for you? I'm in the same boat, I have the same bike, brake set says Shimano Deore Xt, not sure if thats the same as Shimano Xt or not. Was there any identification on the pads? What was it? What did you end up buying and are you satisfied?

    Thanks.

    Stock pads are resin for that bike. I think G01A is the model #. The model numbers get confusing when you look at finned vs non-finned. There's a table out there with a breakdown.

    I bought those brakes again for the bike I just built and they came with metallic. Haven't ridden it yet to know what I prefer.

    Deore XT = XT.
