    Avid/SRAM Cleansweep X Rotors: Which Pad?

    I'm picking up a set of the new Cleansweep X rotors to replace my cleansweep 2s of several years on my Juicy 5s. I know the XX brakes that these come stock on use organic pads but can I get away with regular pads on these rotors or do I have to use organic? Thanks.

    Regular are organic.There are 4 types of compound IIRC.
    organic(semi-metallic)
    sintered(metallic)
    Kevlar
    Ceramic

    So can I use sintered or other pads with these rotors instead of organic. I'm pretty sure my brakes came stock with sintered so I assumed that was regular.

    Sintered are just harder/longer lasting and better suited to wet/damp conditions.Some brakes come with sintered some organic but it really doesn't matter which you choose.Personally i always used sintered in my Juicy's but i live in the UK where it rains most of the time and the place i ride can eat organic pads in one ride
