Strength:

Low Price; The look nice.

Weakness:

Stopping power is mediocre at best.

I like stopping power, which these seem to lack. For me, these pads were an expirement. Based on the results, looks can be deceiving and you still get what you pay for. I'm much more satisfied with the Kool Stop pads.

Strength:

None

Weakness:

These are the worst disk brake pads. It took me 6 rides to wear them in. By the time they were worn in, they had practically worn out! I have had them less than 2 weeks and they are already 3/4 of the way down. On long descents they cease to function - VERY DANGEROUS!!! On top of the that I had to pay $ 20 per set as they were the only ones available at the local market.

This is a review for Barradine brake pads for Shimano XT hydraulic disk brakes. DONT BUY THEM - THEY ARE DANGEROUS!!!! And be careful when buying from ALTERED!!!

Similar Products Used: Original Shimano pads. Lasted me 18 months.

The pads wear down relatively quickly -2 20 mile rides in the Gritstone Peak District, England

A good pad in all weathers. Cheap and cheerful

Strength:

Cheap option when you shift from an LX pad to an XT replaceable type. Makes it possible to vary pad makers (Koolstop, Ritchey etc) and save.

Weakness:

None yet.

Good cheap pad which todate works better then LX. I suggest you monitor their wear to ensure that they do not eventually scrape your rim (XT will scrape too if you are not careful). Once original pads expire you can upgrade to Koolstop replacement pads (cheap option). Makes sense.
