Keep your Shimano disc brakes perfoming like new with genuine Shimano pads. Replacement brake pads for Shimano M988 XTR, M985 XTR, M785 XT and M666 SLX disc brakes.
Inspecting your brake pads for wear and changing them when necessary is a great way to ensure your rotors live a long happy life. But if you do need to replace a rotor don't worry, we carry those too. Check out our extensive selection of disc brake rotors here.
Shimano has produced an extraordinary brake that runs for less than many of the other guys. Excellent stopping power and the vented fins help keep the heat down reducing the effect of brake fade. A little noisy in my opinion but great longevity and performance.
I use the finned metal pads and they work really well. Good stopping power and modulation, but boy do they wear out quickly. Infrequent riding over 4 months and they were worn (front brakes, rear brakes are still going).
Love these pads. Much quieter than the steel pads and performance is just as good in my opinion. Great wear rate also. I highly recommend these!
My xt brakes came with the finned steel pads but I decided to try the finned resin because they were supposed to be quieter. They are quieter and I haven't noticed any decrease in performance, even on long downhills where I have to stay on the brakes for a long period of time. I absolutely love my xt brakes!!!!
