Posted on 6th, January 2015 about Kevlar Disc Brake Pads by Chainmail
Bought a 4 pack. They started off well, with good bite and power, but after one month's riding;- 600kms and 4000m descent later, the rear pads had begun to disintegrate on the edge. In between I rode my old bike with (superb)SLX brakes/genuine pads. When I got back on the new bike I just had to change front and rear for the second set as it felt ridiculously underbraked. Will try the Superstar Organic or Sintered ones next, and if I don't get a better result it's back to AVID's own. I weigh in at 73kgs and am light on brakes, so expected these to last a little longer.
