For big boys riding big boy trails.
The Formula R1/The One/Mega disc brake pads are identical to those that come stock in these brakes. The pads are sintered metallic to provide better durability and heat dissipation for long descents. The Formula R1/The One/Mega Disc Brake Pad set includes pads and retraction spring for one caliper. Order two sets for a complete bike.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are my favorite pads that I've used so far. My bike came with Formula organic pads. With those, my brakes would howl something fierce every time I was on a dusty trail (and I live in Utah, so that was basically every ride). I bought the SwissStop organic pads after the original pads wore out and I experienced the same problem! That's in the past now that I've switched to these sintered pads. They make a little bit of noise when they're cold, but they're fine once I've been riding a little. Also, it's never that terrible howling that I could feel through my whole body.
Just Like Stock!
Overall these do the trick and are exactly like the stock pads that come with this brake. They do the job and the price was right for me but I'm sure there are others that will last longer or are specifically for a lot of down hill riding.
