    XT Brakepads

    Need to replace the brakepads on my 770 series XT brakes. Which pad should I be choosing the M07-S or the M07? I use 160mm rotors.

    Gave up on shimanos went to koolstop, last better, cost less, work better.

    A few sites list the "S" version as a 'second' generation of this pad, capable for use on 203mm rotors and some sites list the plane jane M07 as the 'first' generation..."not for use with 203mm rotors". Other sites make no mention of either. Not sure what changed. Maybe the compound couldn't stand up to the heat of large rotors so they made a change. I'm just guessing.

    Looks like you could go with either from what I can tell, but the M07 for sure.

    Here are examples of both: M07-S...M07

    It would seem that the S in M07-S stands for steel backing and the M07 is alloy. Perhaps that has something to do with the 203mm rotor being usable with the steel backing but not the alloy.

    Could very well be.

    Avoid shimano pads they are very bad quality.

    I have tried most manufacturers out there
    if in the UK goto superstar components.

    If not, koolstop is good
