    2 stars
    I bought these on the back of good reviews (on this site and else where). Unfortunately, these pads aren't for me, they just don't work well in my Hope V2's. I've taken them out to the Mega Avalanche and Monte Tomaro (Switzerland) and found that they just wouldn't bite, one finger braking became two finger braking and I wondered if I'd ever stop in time to get round the the next hair-pin.

    5 stars
    I buy these sintered pads in bulk as i run a downhill bike center in Tignes, in the french alps. i will go through a set roughly every 2 weeks, with the bikes getting used all day everyday.. this does depend on the rider - weight and weather or not they know how to use their brakes correctly. you must bed them in properly or they will melt like butter. have used them on hope m4's, mono m4

    Used these pads on NorCal trails for the past 6 months in XT calipers. Haven't experienced any of the wear issues other have mentioned - just quiet, well modulated braking. Don't quite have the power of sintered pads, but definitely better than resin and much quieter in wet and dry conditions.

    bought 2 of these clamps one in black and one in red for my kona bass and stinky primo as i was sick of the link plates on the stinky catching the stock one brilliant quality and service again from superstar and despite what another review says they both came with stainless bolts.

    This thing is NIIIICE! Got mine today after ordering yesterday (thanks). Fitted it in only a few minutes. Very good quality, a bargain for the price when compared with others. I swapped this in to replace my front der, which weighed 164gms, this weighs only 42gms, despite what it says in the description. i now have a simple 1x9 setup on my spesh rockhopper, running a 36t ring in the middle p

    I'm on my 2nd set of these pads now, they are fantastic just as good as factory ones and at ̏23 for four they are amazing value. I'm super impressed with the service. I've had several other items off SS and they have alwasys had stuff in stock and posted out free first class plus you get a bag of haribo!. Other web sites need to take heed, SS show quality does not have to cost the earth, MTB'ers h

    4 days of hard running in Morzine and Les Gets in the French Alps. These pads performed flawlessly. They are now pretty much worn out whereas my Kevlar ones, which are on my trail bike, do last much longer. Felt the feel was a little better through the organics and very good for the heat generated on the Alps long downhill runs where you are on the hill for 7 hours a day. For those who are wearing
