Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bedding in new pads when they are installed is a critical step. The process transfers a small amount of pad material to the rotor and preps the pad surface for real-world braking. Don’t skip this step.
-Shorter break-in period
-More initial bite
-Prevent heat buildup
-Pushes heat back into the rotor
-Not as good in wet/muddy conditions
