    Aftermarket Pads for Saint 810 Brakes - Experience?

    Does anyone have any firsthand experience with any of the aftermarket brakes pads for the newer gen 810 Saint brakes? It took a while for any to be released but I think there are at least a few brands out there making pads now.

    What pad material did you get?
    How is the stopping power?
    How is the pad life?
    Noise level?
    All these things in comparison to the stock metal pads?

    Thanks

    Cheap one's can be had on ebay. Order some & let us know.

    I'm not ready for replacements yet.
    SPD pedals are an absolute menace to the well-being of the world, and ought be banned immediately.

    They wear a bit faster then stock pads but work as well

    These are the pads that one of the guys on ebay sells. Id really like their black organic, or compound C, but they dont have those for the Saints.

    I've found the superstar kevlar (red) pads very good and very cheap. Which is double good.

    I don't know if they are making them for the Saint brakes but I've used the Swiss Stop disc pads in other brakes and they are pretty impressive. Only pads I've used that I thought were better than an OE pad

    ... Discobrake organic ones for my Hope Mono Minis. Immediately, I started overheating my brakes at the drop of a hat. Went back to stock Hope sintered ($$$ but good) pads and all was good again. I knida feared for my life with those pads. Maybe their sintered ones are better. They are cheap enough, I would give them a try.

    The one aftermarket pad I used that I really like was the Kool Stop Red sintered. I don't know if they are any different for Saint, but they rocked for Hope MMs. I would still be using them if they didn't discontinue them.

    Typically, the stock Shimano metal pads are really good. I have them on my XTR brakes on both of my geared bikes. Quiet, good bite, they seem to last a long time. They are kinda expensive (Like $28 a set at the LBS), but they are hard to beat.

    I picked up a set of the EBC Reds. As soon as I get them broken in, and get some runs on them Ill report my experience with them.
