    EBC Gold and Marta's

    My pads are toast after today's race in the mud and I am considering the EBC Gold for my Marta's. But Magura warns against using sintered pads on these brakes.

    This from Magura USA - "Be aware of companies such as BBB, EBC, etc. using sinterized pad compounds for making pads for our brakes. This can cause overheating and ultimately total brake failure as the inner seals in the caliper will be damaged by the heat. So we strongly recommend using only our organic pads for our brakes. Also, using any other pad or any other part with our brakes will void the warranty." NO sinterized pads!!

    Am I stuck with OEM pads or EBC Green?

    Look at the Magura Marta Undurance pads for longer wear. Made by Magura, so overheating is not an issue.
    I personnally would avoid sinterized pads in the Martas.
