These Shimano XTR Race (G01A) Resin Disc Brake Pads are what comes with your XTR Race disc brakes. The pad material is attached to aluminum backing plates that are as light as possible while still performing admirably. The Resin Pad compound offers better modulation, is quieter, and tends to squeal less than the Metallic Pads, although they tend to wear a bit quicker and don't have quite as much ultimate stopping power. One pair of pads equals one wheel. Buy two pairs to complete your bike.

The Shimano XTR Race (G01A) Resin Disc Brake Pads will work in both the Trail and Race versions of XTR985 brakes as well as fitting the following Shimano brakes: XTR-M975/966/965, Saint-M800, XT-M776/775/765, SLX-M665, Hone-M601, LX-M585, Deore-M545/535.

No, those brakes take the F03C pads.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are very quiet compared to the metallic version. They wear quicker I find as well but for the price it doesn't matter, cause they are quiet. I get about 500 miles on them for a rear brake, so order a few if you ride lots.

Excellent brake pads

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Super quiet pads, great stopping power, good price, moderate life expectancy. Very much worth what you pay for.

Economical Pads

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great economical pads for your Shimano brakes. May not be quite as powerful as metallic.

Excellent pads for Shimano XT/XTR

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The resin pads work great, especially in the West where the riding is generally dry. You'll get a lot of miles out of these pads and they'll keep quiet while offering great stopping power. I've used them on XT and XTR calipers. Pick up a few extras so you have spares when you (or a buddy) really need them.

Good replacements for XT M785

I have these brakes on my Tallboy;
The brakes came with these pads:
At first I thought I bought the wrong pads, but these work just as well as the stock ones as far as I can tell and they are cheaper. Once you pull your old ones out, be sure to apply enough pressure to the caliper mechanisms to make them flush inside the caliper, otherwise you have to reinstall the pads. Keep your hardware (the locking pin) from your old pads as you may need them to install your new pads.

Nice And Quiet!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pads are great and easy to change. I like the Resin pads much better then the metallic because of how much quieter they are. They do not last as long but are a little less money than the others, so it evens out. If you hate beak squeaky brakes get these.

I'm a little confused with the compatibility...

I'm a little confused with the compatibility of this product... it says it works with 985 as well as 775, which are shaped completely differently.

I need to know that these will fit my XT M785 brakes, which they appear to based on the picture, but they are not listed on the model list. Please confirm that these will fit.
