    Metallic or Semi-Metallic?

    What is the difference? I just ordered some 2010 stroker aces and wanted to get new pads while I am at it. What are the best option? If you know of any better ones please let me know, and why.

    semi metallic are usually the standard pads. They are supposed to give better modulation in general and won't squeal as much.

    Metallic pads will brake a little harder once heated and won't fade as much. They also are supposed to work better in the rain and wear longer.

    I use metallic pads on my juicy 7's and my stroker trails. I like the extra power and don't miss the modulation.

    Pretty sure Metallic's are original eqipment on Stoker's . Semi or organic can be found in a lot of aftermarket pads. Any agressive riding go full metallic.
