Put these on as the Shimano pads were toast. These stop a lot better in the wet...which is everywhere here! Rains every afternoon usually when I ride so these Gators got bite! Also doesn't pick up sand that eats up my rims. The Shimano pads were riddled with sand and it's all over in South Florida. Get a set and you won't be sorry!
These brake pads fit on my bike perfectly. Seem to work just fine! A great buy for the price.
The brake are easy to install and work very good will buy more when I need them.
Brake pads installed easily, adjusted easily, and work exactly how they're supposed to. Can't comment on durability or length of life yet, but so far so good!
I have used these pads for several years now and like the savings over the stock replacement pads which came installed on my Brakes. Despite the lower cost, I do not see a measurable difference between these and those which came with my brakes. They setup easily, and if setup correctly, are quiet without a hint of squeal. They have the typical degree of grab and are not too hard nor are they too soft. Use these pads, and you'll get the same performance for less cash. In addition, these holders / pads will save you more in the long run because you can replace just the pads with the holders remaining on the bike in the process. All you need to do is pull the metal clip, slide the pad out, and put the new pad in and replace the small metal clip and you're good to go for a really long time. These pads are worth every penny.
