Strengths:    Cheap

Weaknesses:    Not for someone looking an instant stopping power like trials riders and anyone that doesn't need modulation on their brakes.

Bottom Line:   
My Magura HS33 came with these black pads so I decided to try it for fun. It's great if you're looking for some modulation but it doesn't work at all for trials riding.

I ended up purchasing the Rock blue pads from trialspads.com and the stopping power has been instant. (Price & service is wonderful also)

Good for anyone wanting some 'dragging' feel for their brakes but defintely a big no-no for a trials rider.

Strengths:    pad life.

Weaknesses:    there are hs33 pads with MUCH better grip.

Bottom Line:   
i have ridden on red, black, and gray. all suck for lock, red is the best of those. there is a reason i got all these pads for free, cause they suck, especially the gray. but why would you buy these pads when you can buy pads that give you a lot more power for the same price or even for cheaper...

Strengths:    these pads wear out fast because they are soft by give A++ grip on to the rims.

Weaknesses:    wear out fast....thats all...you might need to clean your rim more often as I used magura hydro rim brakes.

Bottom Line:   
great pads for XC/Hardtail used. I think it depends on the brakes if you go extream DH & Freeride with them because mine are rims and I mostly do hardtail

Strengths:    All the pads have different strengths but overall there damn grippy!!

Weaknesses:    The wet, all the pads bur the grey ones just don't work i the wet. I'm talking about trials riding so locking up is important and thats what they don't do!!

Bottom Line:   
The pads are great in the dry conditions but I don't trust them i the wet, if you get the pad thats specific for your rim then you can't go wrong!!!!!

Submitted by bladteth a Cross Country Rider from Lodz, Poland

Date Reviewed: June 11, 2000

Strengths:    + killer in dry conditions
+ lifespan (2 years)


Weaknesses:    - a bit pricey (black for $15, Koolstops $20 for 2 pairs)
- loose grip in seriously wet conditions (with my Vuelta Eagle rims)


Bottom Line:   
My black pads are almost worn out after 2 years of rather heavy use and I will replace them with new in couple of days. Magura pads last a bit longer than these in v-brakes partly because of thicker rubber in them. They grip the rim tightly in most conditions except when used in heavy rain or wet (I mean WET) terrain, but it may be caused by Vuelta rims sidewalls and worn pads as well. Price is a bit high, yet comparable with good v-brake pads.

Strengths:    Excellent stopping power with fantastic breaking control during heavy breaking on variable and low traction surfaces. Very little brake fade in wet and muddy conditions.

Weaknesses:    In more extreme cross country with big climbs and steep decents such as in Mid Wales I've worn a set of pads out in 4 days but that is unusual Normal weekend riding will see them last for 6 months.

Bottom Line:   
Fantastic for XC and mild to medium downhill. They burn out to fast once you start getting into serious downhill breaking.

Strengths:

modulation


Weaknesses:    
none


Bottom Line:   
I had the black pads come with my hs33's but a friend slapped on some red ones.
I like them better. He said he got front and rear pads for $14 from Nashbar.
They still modulate like crazy yet I felt they offered a touch more power (???).
I had the black pads for about a year or more and they are still going strong.
I liked how easily the pad change was.

Strengths:    
Great stopping power.


Weaknesses:    
Price and wear


Bottom Line:   
These brakes are very good, but their pads are not cheap ($25 is the usual that I've seen lately thru mail order and down here they cost $40).
A piece of advice: Do not use the green pads on ceramic rims (217s) for more than a short time. I burned thru a set in, no BS, one week. My pads were so far gone at the end that I actually endoed because the lever throw was too long for me.
I'm currently using red pads and may go to grey as per previous recommendations.
Overall, pretty happy. Great stopping power and good modulation.

Strengths:    
Long lasting
no grit pickup-red pads
easy to change
inexpensive


Weaknesses:

Bottom Line:   
Excellent pads, but you need Magura's to appreciate them. The red compound is probably the best for all-around use, the greens are just a little bit better for wet conditions, but will pick up grit.

Hi there,
I'm riding Maguras for about 6 years now and won't change to standard cantilevers again! These are the best brakes, I ever rode (included some disc brakes). OK, they are a bit on the heavy side and they occasionally pack up with mud, but you have a no hassle, no worry brake.
The brake pads are one reason of the Maguras performance, good stopping power (dry or wet), long lasting, no squealing, easy to change without readjusting. Something I forgot?
For the people using standard cantilevers: A small factory in Germany (Wendler) produces an adaptor to use magura brake pads with standard cantis!
Some people have complaints about having to readjust the brakepiston, after readjusting the adjuster screw at the lever. If the adjuster screw is screwed in to the limit, the pads aren't completely worn, that's right. Two ways to solve this 'problem': Store your half worn pads and readjust the brake piston only, when you have some sets in spare. The other way: After having a half worn set of brake pads readjust the brake piston at the front wheel (usually the longer lasting pads are on the front wheel) to accept these pads. If the pads on the other wheel are half-worn later, you can use them on the front wheel and no readjustment necassary for the rest of your life!
Greetings from Germany and have fun in the dirt!

I have two sets of maguras and have the reds on one and the greys on the other at least I think they are grey they could be black. Anyways you can definately feel the difference. The reds are awesome for locking up the wheel while the greys are not that great. But in general they last long and are easy to change. I suggest getting the reds cause they are the best all around pad. The price is almost as much as a set of v pads maybe more but well worth it since they last so much longer.

Hey, Big Dave!! You got your green and red pads mixed up!! Reds are for dry conditions, and green are for wet conditions. I think that all Magura pads are great!! They last forever, and if you have the right pads with boosters, they will work like disk brakes!!!!!
