    Details

    All's well that ends well.

    In the chaos of spring, singletrack trails can take sudden turns for the worst. In these cases, SRAM's Guide/X0 Trail Disc Brake Pads help to ensure that your rides end well by ending with you grabbing the brakes, not diving into a tree. We recommend the organic pads for lighter cyclists with a cross-country focus who don't ride their brakes. Alternatively, larger cyclists and downhillers will appreciate the long-suffering action of the sintered pads. They take a little longer to catch but maintain stopping power even while heating up from hard use.

    Great Value

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got a bike last year with Avid/Sram disc brakes--scary--I've been avoiding them since my first experience with Elixirs years ago. However, the new guide brakes work and work really well. But good stoppers require pads in good shape. I was pleasantly surprised that these new pads were significantly cheaper to replace than the J-type finned Shimano pads on most of my other bikes. Great value pads for a great braking system.

    Keep the power you paid for

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Brake pads wear out, its unfortunate, but it means that you ride your bike. Keep riding your bike fun by making sure you stop without the horrid metal on metal sound of over used and worn out brake pads. Its easier to replace these before you have to also replace a rotor.

    Still great brake pads.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    They will stop you. Don't you worry about that. Metallic- bite a bit harder but they are pretty much on or off, not too much feathering the power. Organic- Bit more of a progressive feel. the more you pull, the more they bite. BUT, they don't last quite as long as the metallic.

    for keeping the rubber side down

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    they do the job. i prefer the metallic they dont work as well unless they are good and heated up which means less braking. less braking means more speed. More speed means more fun. im into that.

    Lots of Stops

      Solid pads that lasted a long time. I don't have much of a preference when it comes to metallic vs organic, all I know is the last set of metallic pads I used lasted many miles. Break them in right and you shouldn't have any loud annoying brakes!

      Metallic Last Longer!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have used both the organic, and the metallic. I personally prefer the metallic as they last much longer. The organic seem to keep the system cooler and do better in wet conditions, and are much quieter; however I wear them out 3 times as fast.

      Definitely get new rotors if you are switching pad materials. I switched from organic to metallic and they made soooooo much noise. Got a new rotor with my newest set and it seems to have gotten rid of the howl.

      Keep your teeth in your head

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Snagged a refresher set of the organics that came stock on my Guide RSC brakes. If you're changing pad compounds, you may want to get new rotors also, as the embedded material on the rotor may make things a little noisy with the change.

      Keeps my brakes working

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Great pads for great brakes. Love the feel and power of the Guides and replacing the pads keeps them feeling as close to new as possible.

      Organic and Gluten Free!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I don't know about the glutons, but I do love the quieter braking of the organic pads. They will wear out a little quicker and do not offer as much bite as the metallic pads, so if you are looking for a little extra modulation and a little less bite, these will do the job nicely.

      hit the brakes!!!!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      They will stop you. Don't you worry about that. Metallic- bite a bit harder but they are pretty much on or off, not too much feathering the power. Organic- Bit more of a progressive feel. the more you pull, the more they bite. BUT, they don't last quite as long as the metallic.

      easy and effective

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These pads are so easy to change and the stopping power is second to none. never had a problem with noise on either sintered or organic but I like the sintered because they last longer.

      Easy To Change Yourself

        Brakes are easy to change yourself. I mostly ride downhill and usually keep and extra set in my pack so I'm ready whenever one of mine's on the fritz. I prefer sintered pads for their longer life and don't mind the occasional screeching.

        Quiet, powerful braking

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        One of the best brakes that I've used, the X0 Trail and then Guide brakes; I continually buy these pads, using the sintered up front and the organic in the rear, I have quiet consistently powerful braking. In our climate, the desert, with arid atmosphere, I've found that this combo works best on my bike. Easy to install and relatively inexpensive, I definitely recommend using these factory pads on your Trail or Guide brakes.
