These MTB Red Brake Pads are extra high in friction but still an organic pad for use on all types of rotors.
In considering which pads to use for downhill work it is essential to understand your own brake system. Some hydraulic systems, such as those made by Magura use fluid lines made from nylon or plastic and can be prone to softening and swell if overheated.
For this reason Magura and others are not too keen on using pads in their systems that generate too much heat such as sintered pads. If Downhill is your riding sport EBC MTB red grade brake pads will be a great choice, lifetime being quite short but great brakes, low rotor damage and minimal heat transfer into the bikes hydraulics is to be considered.
