Just completed the 2009 Strathpuffer 24 hour race (team) in rain, gales, snow and mud. Stocked up on these sintered pads due to rumours about needing loads of spares. Pleasantly surprised to report that these pads lasted about 50 miles in the grit-stone mud and still had more left.....well recommended and glad i didnt need to change any pads in the blizzards!
hi ive been useing the pads for the last year very good service good price the pads may not last as well as the top brands but you have to think about the cost .And think about the weather weve been having so overall the pads are good value.
OK, they don't last as long as the originals, I run Avid brakes, and the original pads last for about 20% longer, but considering you pay a third of the price or Superstars what do you expect. I've never had any issues with performance, maybe not as much feel as Avid pads, but all in all a great disc pad, i'm onto my second set of four and i'll be coming back for more!
I badly needed new pads and unfortunately my local bike shop doesn't stock pads for my Deore LX discs, apparently they are not a core stocked item??? No problem cause they suggested I order some from Superstar Components, so home i went to order 4 packs of sintered pads at an amazingly good price. Order before 4pm for next day delivery it says on the website, well as it was 3pm on Friday i didn't
I havn't had chance to fit these yet so won't comment on performance but the service is outstanding! Ordered late on saturday night and on my doormat tuesday morning, progress kept up to date by e-mail. Superb.
