Unsure about whether you need sintered disc brake pads or organic disc brake pads?
Here at The Bike Factory we stock both sintered and organic (sometimes called "resin") disc brake pads from top manufacturers like Shimano, Hope and Clarks.


We recommend you try both and see which work best for your riding style however we've put toget a rough guide to help you choose which tyrpe of disc brake pad might be best for you to start with.

Sintered disc brake pads:
Pros:

  • Can get hotter than organic pads before they "fade"
  • Last longer
  • Better for wetter or muddy conditions
  • Better for heavier riders
  • Better on long downhills

Cons:

  • Take a little longer to "bite" than organic pads
  • Can be louder
  • Can wear the rotor out faster
  • Conducts more heat through the caliper than the rotor so can heat up brake oil and cause some loss of power when very hot 


Organic disc brake pads:
Pros:

  • Tend to have more initial bite
  • Shorter time to break in
  • Quieter
  • Prevents to much heat build up

Cons:

  • Wear out faster than sintered pads
  • Not as effective as sintered pads in very wet or muddy conditions 

 

Hopefuly this little disc brake pad guide helps you choose the right pads for you.
