Avid Juicy/BB7 Disc Brake Pad

Juicy/BB7 Disc Brake Pad

This rectangular pad set, enough for one brake, works with all of the Juicy hydraulic brakes and the cable-operated BB7.

Since you never want to ride metal on metal, it's always good to have two sets of pads around, so you don't need to hustle to find pads when you suddenly realize you need to replace your old pads the Friday night before a big weekend of riding. Included in the kit are two pads and a spreader spring for one brake. Choose organic or metallic compound.

  • Organic brake pads: quieter but wear out faster than metallic; better modulation, less power
  • Metallic brake pads: noisier but last longer than organic; less modulation, more power
  • Each package includes 2 brake pads
  • Item #AVI0017

I put these on a trail bike with 185 mm rotors and was very impressed. I did not get any stickers unfortunately. How am i supposed to rep this item without stickers?

Brakes are good

I've put it through the wringer

Standard brakes that stop you and your bike! These are a far better option than eating bark! Nothing fancy, basic brakes but they work well! The last pair of these pads lasted me a solid 4 years riding 3-4 days per week.

Easy to install and dependable.

I've used it several times

Fit my Avid Juicy 5 brakes and were super easy to install. I went with the metal option for extra durability.

Cheap, Functional Brake Pads

I've used it several times

At the suggestion of my bike mechanic I got these in the metallic because they should last a little longer. A good investment at the beginning of a bike season. The metallic brakes get a little noisey but they certainly work the way they should. If you are uncertain about which brake pads to get consult one of our Gearheads at Competitive Cyclists so they can get it right for you the first time.

Organic vs Metallic

I've put it through the wringer

Great pads that are very easy to install without the help of your local shop. Reliable stopping power. I personally prefer metallic over organic. I don't mind a little extra noise to know that I have better stopping power in all conditions. --Know your pads-- ORGANIC PROS: -Quieter-Shorter break-in period-More initial bite-Prevent heat buildup-Pushes heat back into the rotor ORGANIC CONS:-Wear quicker-Not as good in wet/muddy conditions Use these if you are a lighter weight rider, and riding where lots of brakes are not required. METALLIC PROS:-fade at a higher temperature than resin pads-better performance in wet conditions-last longer METALLIC CONS:-louder-longer break-in time-not as much initial bite-heat is conducted through the caliper, not the rotor Use these if you are a heavier rider and/or riding in wet, muddy, or dusty conditions. They are also a lot better if you are running small rotors, or are on a long descend. Also recommended for touring rigs.

Organic/semi-metallic/resin pads are softer and tend to be quieter. They offer more initial bite, but fade faster than metallic pads on longer descents. Do not use organic/semi-metallic/resin pads in wet conditions. Metallic/sintered pads last longer, handle heat better, and resist fade better under heavier braking loads, making them good for downhill. In wet conditions, metallic pads are a must.

great brake pads

I've put it through the wringer

These fit my avid juice 7 brake system like a charm. I don't have any complaints, they fit and they work as advertised.

awesome pads, 1000s of ks

I've put it through the wringer

if you buy these, it means two things: you ride a lot and your pads last a while. both are good things, and one of the reasons I stick with juicy and bb7s for all my bikes. Easy to rack up 10000km without having to change pads, and the number can triple on the road. Pretty easy to change with just some pliers which is nice in the field.

10000km.... Ha! Nevertheless, I got 3000~ miles out of mine. Depends on usage, rider weight, how much descending you do....great no nonsense pads, very easy to replace, and if you know how to maintain them easily quiet!

Great Pads

Killer stopping power. Last a long time (metallic). Easy install for the most part.


Are the Avid brake pads universal for all...

Are the Avid brake pads universal for all levels of the Juicy line? More specifically, are these Avid brake pads compatible with the Juicy 3s?

These will work with all Juicy brakes.
