All's well that ends well.

In the chaos of spring, singletrack trails can take sudden turns for the worst. In these cases, SRAM's Guide/X0 Trail Disc Brake Pads help to ensure that your rides end well by ending with you grabbing the brakes, not diving into a tree. We recommend the organic pads for lighter cyclists with a cross-country focus who don't ride their brakes. Alternatively, larger cyclists and downhillers will appreciate the long-suffering action of the sintered pads. They take a little longer to catch but maintain stopping power even while heating up from hard use.

Brakes are good, m'kay

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Ran the original pads all summer and now I need new ones. They do a pretty good job of stopping my forward progress. Bought the organic...less break in time/noise.

Great Value

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got a bike last year with Avid/Sram disc brakes--scary--I've been avoiding them since my first experience with Elixirs years ago. However, the new guide brakes work and work really well. But good stoppers require pads in good shape. I was pleasantly surprised that these new pads were significantly cheaper to replace than the J-type finned Shimano pads on most of my other bikes. Great value pads for a great braking system.

Keep the power you paid for

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Brake pads wear out, its unfortunate, but it means that you ride your bike. Keep riding your bike fun by making sure you stop without the horrid metal on metal sound of over used and worn out brake pads. Its easier to replace these before you have to also replace a rotor.

Still great brake pads.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They will stop you. Don't you worry about that. Metallic- bite a bit harder but they are pretty much on or off, not too much feathering the power. Organic- Bit more of a progressive feel. the more you pull, the more they bite. BUT, they don't last quite as long as the metallic.

Great pads

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Quiet reliable braking. I've used these all summer without issue. They don't last as long as the metallic pads.

for keeping the rubber side down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

they do the job. i prefer the metallic they dont work as well unless they are good and heated up which means less braking. less braking means more speed. More speed means more fun. im into that.

Nice, Easy Maintenance

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Lots of work you do on your bike is expensive and/or lots of work. Throwing in some new brake pads is neither, and is a great (necessary) way to freshen up your ride.

Lots of Stops

    Solid pads that lasted a long time. I don't have much of a preference when it comes to metallic vs organic, all I know is the last set of metallic pads I used lasted many miles. Break them in right and you shouldn't have any loud annoying brakes!

    Metallic Last Longer!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used both the organic, and the metallic. I personally prefer the metallic as they last much longer. The organic seem to keep the system cooler and do better in wet conditions, and are much quieter; however I wear them out 3 times as fast.

    Definitely get new rotors if you are switching pad materials. I switched from organic to metallic and they made soooooo much noise. Got a new rotor with my newest set and it seems to have gotten rid of the howl.

    Keep your teeth in your head

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Snagged a refresher set of the organics that came stock on my Guide RSC brakes. If you're changing pad compounds, you may want to get new rotors also, as the embedded material on the rotor may make things a little noisy with the change.

    Keeps my brakes working

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Great pads for great brakes. Love the feel and power of the Guides and replacing the pads keeps them feeling as close to new as possible.

    Organic and Gluten Free!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I don't know about the glutons, but I do love the quieter braking of the organic pads. They will wear out a little quicker and do not offer as much bite as the metallic pads, so if you are looking for a little extra modulation and a little less bite, these will do the job nicely.

    Have Sram Guides? Like Stopping?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great pads. Stop well. I use the organic for the noise- and don't mind switching pads out a bit more. So easy to change even a caveman could do it.

    hit the brakes!!!!

    easy and effective

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These pads are so easy to change and the stopping power is second to none. never had a problem with noise on either sintered or organic but I like the sintered because they last longer.

    SRAM Guide/X0 Trail Disc Brake Pads

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These pads work great on my elixir trail 9's. I use the organic version to cut the screech in the dry Utah air. Great pads!

    Easy To Change Yourself

      Brakes are easy to change yourself. I mostly ride downhill and usually keep and extra set in my pack so I'm ready whenever one of mine's on the fritz. I prefer sintered pads for their longer life and don't mind the occasional screeching.
