EBC Brake Disc Brake Pads - Standard
EBC Brake Disc Brake Pads
Green Compound Pads
For cross country riding this is your best choice and is a British made organic pad compound that will not damage your discs. The pads have a medium lifetime and most types 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
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 must be evaluated, 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
David Very good quality pads at a great price. Very quiet. Good to know they're made by a company with a history of manufacturing motor bike pads.
David I usually stick to Shimano xt finned, metallic pads (J04C). But...as they are not easy to get right now I went for these. After several months of use, I would rate these as 'OK' but they really don't match the performance of the Shimano pads. I found these difficult to bed in, and they are more noisy when damp / cold. More importantly, they lack the same stopping power and I have experienced noticable brake fade on longer descents - meaning more effort required to brake and sore hands/arms as a result. At least this has answered the question I had about whether Shimano pads were worth the extra coin....they are!
Guy They work. Cheap. Not noisy. Can't comment on longevity yet.
Mr Meakes For the money these are great pads and were delivered very quick
Mr Mills Fits perfectly, quiet in use and with good bite and feel
Dom McCabe great pads, do the job perfectly.
alex Ive been using ebc for my motorbikes for years and wanted to try these, same quality and a good bite level once bedded in. Would use over sram again.
Mr Gradwell Great quality and stopping power for a good price.
andrew Good pads and a lot cheaper than shimano
Robin Anthony Standard no fuss pads, decent performance and excellent value for money, especially with Merlin discount
John These work very well. Slightly thicker than manufacturers own so rub slightly with the pistons pushed right back for the first few rides.
Mick Miller A good quality brake pad at a sensible price.
Mr Martins Excelente qualidade e durabilidade.
Mr Roche Good quality replacements for the pads in my brakes. Great service from Merlin as usual delivery was very quick
Lance Good price.. good stopping power
VeloM Best pads for TRP/hrd brakes, no noise and last for a while
Mr Kwint Good Pad. Quick bed in time and quiet
100weight Excellent value pads, Fitted to my CycloCross bike so they will be put to the test! But to early to give a verdict on longevity, hence 4 stars. (So far so good)
Matt I purchased these organic pads in a last ditch attempt to stop brake sqeaul. The pads I previously used howled terribly, regardless of how they were bedded in. These pads though have been super quiet from the start and have lasted ok so far, including a few gritty rides in the peaks. They are very reasonably priced too so I will be buying more of these in the future.
Cyclogopnik Fantastic performance from these organic pads with Shimano stainless rotors, as well as the quietest I've tried. Pad life is decent, an absolute steal at this price.
Mr Arnold Great brake pads from my initial ride with them after my Shimano branded pads wore out. I am happy with them so far and looking forward to riding with them in the wet to see how they perform.
Miss Whiteley Easy to fit and have done exactly what they are supposed to do- stop me. No issues
