Solid stopping power, but spare yourself a headache and BED THEM IN PROPERLY

Once you get these pads set up right, they are powerful in both dry and wet conditions. That being said, you need to make sure that you bed the pads in correctly before going on a proper ride. There are a plethora of different youtube videos about this topic, but generally speaking, you want to get up to a decent speed (maybe 15 mph), engage the brake gradually until you are down to around 5 mph, release the brake BEFORE YOU LOCK UP THE WHEEL, and repeat the process at least 10x per brake.

Learn a lesson from me and avoid squeaky/not effective braking. Fear not, I was able to sand off the glazing on my pads and rectify the situation without too much fuss.

Upgrade to original equipment

Easy to install (after watching you tube video). At 5 mm thickness, roduct is an upgrade to the 3 mm pads that came with my bike.

Replaced my R03 pads

Just a quick upgrade from the original set of pads. So far much better than before.

There's nothing better!

During the pandemic service parts were in short supply, so I couldn't find genuine brake pads for an upcoming gravel event. The LBS recommend "ceramic" pads they say they've used with great success and customers were happy with ...fine, they worked and seemed ok, so I just forgot about them and got through the pandemic on them.

Recently a got an email notice from BTD that genuine Shimano pads were back in stock AND it happened there was a flash sale also, so I figured since I was getting the Revolt prepped for the '23 gravel season, why not just go ahead and freshen up the bike with new pads too ???????

O... M... G!!!! After bedding them in, I cannot believe the difference in outright power, modulation & gain, resistance to fading and they're quiet ??

I'll never ever go with anything else, these are the pads to go with period you won't be disappointed ????

They're too big for my DA rotors.

Attention: The contact area of this pad overhangs the braking surface / overlaps the painted area of the Dura-Ace SM-RT900-S and SM-RT900-SS rotors, 140mm and 160mm.

I don't think they're compatible.

Better than expected

Awesome stopping power and quiet too, combined with the new DA rotors I have complete confidence in my brakes. I weigh about 210lbs and the only time I have to squeeze the levers hard is when I�m going downhill at 30mph or more and come up to a red light or a stop sign.

Quiet

What a wonderful improvement over the 03!!! Better stopping power, better modulation, and quiet. Bedded without much fuss -- just careful at the end of a stop for a little while. And, did I mention, no more squealing?

Direct replacement pads.

This pad replaced the L03A pads, which replaced the L02A pads. Shimano states that this is a further improvement. Fit wise, it is. Time will tell if stopping power or wear is improved. For now, no issues with the new pads.

Good Brake Pads

These do exactly what you want them to. They fit shimano brakes (105 to be specific in my case) and they stop your bike! Good price, work well, arrive quickly. Can't ask for any more.
