Some variants may not appear in drop-down (if they're out of stock).

Green Compound Pads (CFA493)
For all types of riding this is your best choice and is a British-made organic pad compound that will not prematurely wear your rotors. The pads have a good lifetime and are supplied with slightly beefed up retraction springs to prevent pad drag. For downhill racing or longer life in wet and mud see either the RED or GOLD grades.
  • Designed for X-country riding
  • Softer pad compound for better stopping
  • Can be used on non-hardened or hardened discs
  • This is a RESIN pad
Red Compound Pads (CFA493R)
For downhill use, the RED grade has a higher heat threshold but has the added benefit of not overheating the brakes with excessive heat transfer which would cause softening of your brake lines. Lifetime is limited, these pads are designed for a few descents only, check wear after every ride to avoid running out of brakes. Supplied with heavy-duty retraction springs in spring based systems.
  • High friction pad for downhill riding
  • Handles more heat under heavy braking
  • Minimum heat transfer to hydraulics
  • Can be used on non-hardened or hardened discs
  • This is a RESIN pad

Gold Compound Pads (CFA493HH)
It is commonly accepted that sintered pads last several times longer than organic pads. These comments still ring true in the MTB Brake pad market. Sintered pads also offer higher friction rates. EBC sintered gold grade MTB pads will last longer and brake stronger than anything else you can buy.

  • Sintered compound for wet and muddy conditions
  • Longer lasting pads with high friction rating
  • Great value for money
  • Made in the USA and used by some of the world's greatest bicycle sportsmen
