SRAM Road Disc Brake Stainless Steel/Sintered Pads 2014
SRAM conducted an immense amount of tests to get their road disc pads just right. Part of this test was to convince 400 pound gorillas to ride road bikes down steep mountain passes. No animals were harmed that day, but many bananas were consumed. After SRAM's engineers gathered the results from these tests, they designed these pads to keep friction fade to a minimum and to deliver a smoother braking experience. These pads feature full stainless steel-backed pads with tweaked sintered organic pads. The SRAM Road Disc Brake Pads also feature angled profiles at the bottom to make wheel changes faster and easier.
