Thanks but ouch. More than double the cost of the oem Shimano pads.Yep we have them, in two compounds.
We do struggle to keep them in stock, but our Gold Label compound is available and we will have more of the Red Label RL141 this week.

As far as brake obsessive performance here are pads for a full XC race bike and not a gravity bike. I just need something to stop the bike. MSRP of the Shimano K03s is on $12. So yea even more than double. I did find a set of Galfer for $17. I really hope the $35 for these tiny pads are price gouging because of supply.Wow tough crowd.
@brex17 - I get it, but it doesn't work like that for our product (comparing our pricing to pricing for brake pads at Auto Zone for your truck, for example). I won't get too far into it, but the scale of each is not even in the same zip code; our product is made in MUCH smaller quantities, and our cost per pair reflects that. Those automotive brake pads are made in tens of thousands at a time, in one single run. Our compounds are different, and so on.
Our MSRP is right in line with most OEs and more than that, it is dictated by our pricing from the very bottom, to the top.
And to @vin839's point, we aren't trying match OEM product in any way (although our pricing is right in line with most OE offerings - not sure what you're seeing at half our cost) - we are going after performance, to get a better performing brake pad that is quieter, strong & progressive, and more durable.
All good - there are many options out there - our target customer is the brake-obsessive performance enthusiast.
100% agree... NO to ceramic pads.I'm a skeptic on any ceramic based brakes for a bicycle. My experience on automotive or aircraft ceramic brakes are the high levels of heat generation necessary for acceptable performance. What makes these any different?
