BR-RS805/RS505 Flat Mount Metallic Ice-Tech Disc Brake Pad

Cooler brakes stop more reliably, and Shimano's BR-RS805/RS505 Flat Mount L04C Metallic Ice-Tech Disc Brake Pads use both cooling Ice Technology and a metal construction to provide the highest all-around stopping power in Shimano's line. On their own, the metal pads display reliable, high stopping power in wet or dry conditions, demonstrating consistently better durability over repetitive use than their resin counterparts. The pads' Ice Tech distinction refers to an additional radiation fin pad, made with an aluminum and stainless steel fin that improves the pads' ability to stay cool under hard braking. If you're running Ultegra BR-RS805 or 105-level RS505 hydraulic disc brakes on your bike and want a pad that will stop you in muddy, sandy, wet conditions, the L04C's would be tough to beat.

Easy to Install

I've used it several times

Super easy install. Great stopping power. Metal pads get incredibly loud when wet so keep that in mind.

Shimano GRX 400 brakes

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

Despite what a backcountry rep told me, and despite what the Shimano GRX 400 docs say (by omission), these pads, which are the L04C metallic pads, fit my GRX 400 brakes. My GRX 400 brakes came new with the L03A resin pads, so if your bike uses L03A pads, then these L04C pads will also fit. Oh yeah, and if you don't already know, the "L" on a pad means the left side of the caliper when you are sitting on the bike, and the "R" on a pad means the right side of the caliper.
