noticable improvement in performance

PostedMay 24, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: at full price expensive (£24.99) i paid £16.99
I currently run shimano slx brakes with 180mm discs, they are the 2009 model, recently put the ashima pads on and instantly felt more bite even better than when the bike was brand new, not had them long so cant comment on wear etc but happy so far, like having a new more powerful set of brakes on my bike!
would highly recommend over the shimano pads.

The best of both worlds

PostedJune 19, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, long lasting, great stopping power
I was getting through a set of organic pads in one ride on really muddy days. Switched to the metal/sintered pads and they squealed like made and my discs turned blue with the heat generated. Hence, when I saw these SOS pads I was hoping that they'd be the best of both worlds and not the worst. I was not disappointed. These pads stop like organic pads but wear like sintered pads. And there is no squeal at all. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Superb.

So far, so good

PostedJune 15, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, effective in wet and dry
Cons: Expensive
Took a bit longer than usual to bed in, but now feel good and firm. Running them on the front, and they have worked well in both dry and wet conditions, with little or no squeal.
Can't comment on wear rate yet, or how they perform when worn. At this price, that will be the acid test of value.
Now, if Evans would like to sponsor me for a day riding in the rain on the Surrey Hills...

Good price and better wearing than original pads

PostedMay 14, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, last well
These last much better than the original pads, they seem better able to survive sandy, muddy winters.
