Shimano XTR M985 Metal Disc Brake Pads



Replacement pads for the XTR M985 Race brake calipers. These pads feature a metal compound that is longer lasting and more fade resistant than resin, while special titanium backing plate reduces weight.

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!
