Replacement pads for Avid XO Trail brakes with four pistons. Top loading pad system makes removal and installation quick and easy. Metal compound with steel backing increase modulation to give more control, and is longer lasting and more fade resistant than organic pads.
Hint for breaking-in: New disc brake pads require a certain break-in period in order to provide the full brake power. The following procedure has proved oneself: drag braking on a downhill until the brake power noticeably increases. Then let the brake rotor cool out. Afterwards do 20 full stops braking from a medium speed. Attention: the rotors get very hot, do not touch them!
