Avid Elixir Organic Pads with Aluminum Backplate
The Organic Avid Elixir brake pads are ideal for all around use and work well in wet or dry conditions. Their aluminum backplate makes them lighter and dissipate heat quicker than a steel backplate (cooler brakes help reduce brake fade). They also feature a non-slip, extra long pull tab for easy removal- no more struggling with wet or sweaty fingers.
I noticed my local Whole Foods started selling these recently--JK. JK. But seriously. That organic action is hard to beat for quiet high power stopping.
