Date Reviewed: October 31, 2001

Strengths:    None, Zero, Zilch, nada, too light for a paper weight even.

Weaknesses:    Everything, Worked good for 10 minutes, on clean dry wheels, failed painfully, pulled up on the rear wheel, lurched and you could hear them squeel as I went over backwards, I was deathgripping the brake leaver, damn near broke my pelvis.

Bottom Line:   
Don't buy them, don't even get on a bike that has them.

Very good performance
works in wet/mud conditions
when set properly (little coin-trick) they are very quiet even when wet

due to very soft material they wear out very quickly

Bottom Line:   
I was happy when I finally found one pads which are good in all conditions

New brake pads

I currently have avid trail brakes on the Chilcotin & am foreseeing the need to replace soon as 3 days in Whistler is coming up. I'm being proactive by ordering some instead of getting a lube job by buying locally. What is the current recommendation of compound & backing for gravity stuff?Read More »

How to adjust / center XT brake pads

My girlfriend just got a new ( demo ) SB95 which has the new XT disc brakes on it. The front pads are rubbing. I know how to center most brake calipers, but these don't have the adjustment slots. How do you center the pads on these things?Read More »

The front has never made a peep ever, but the rear has had issues from day one. While messing around with rear pads, calipers, et ... Read More »

Magura Louise FR brake pads - Bikefridge Kevlar

I need to stock up on more pads for my multi-sets of Louise FR's and I noticed Bikefridge's regular pads were well liked (from threads several years old). He has another compound - Kevlar - that I haven't been able to find any feedback on. Has anyone used these and can speak to how they perform?Read More »
