Race-worthy modulation.

When your original disc brake pads start to wear, Shimano’s G02A Resin Disc Brake Pads are a necessary, but affordable replacement. The G02A features a light, durable aluminum backplate and the Resin Pad compound delivers efficient power modulation with less noise compared to Shimano's Metallic Pads. These pads have a huge range of compatibility, as in the past; in addition to working with the Race version of XTR brakes and their XT sibling, the BR-M8000, the pads work with M9020, M987, M985, M785, M675, M666, M615, S700, CX75, RS785, R785, R515, and R315. One pair of pads is enough for one caliper, so you'll need two pairs to complete your bike and get back your confidence-inspiring stopping power.

  • Resin brake pads to replace XTR Race or XT disc brake pads
  • Durable aluminum backplate with quiet, reliable resin pad
  • Compatible with extensive range of Shimano brakes
  • Each package includes 2 brake pads

Makes stopping easy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Shimano brakes work great and these pads are awesome....the resin material does wear faster than metal but that's just the way it goes. Wear these in correctly and you'll have a ton of no issue riding time on your hands.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My stock break pads have fins, this de-finned version works just fine. If I was riding twisty mountain descents I'd probably upgrade but for general day to day riding I have no complaints.

Great for Short Descents

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

I have a mountain bike specifically for flowy trails on rolling hills (metro Atlanta). I ran metal pads for a year and though they never got hot, they were severely lacking on power and modulation. Since our descents are short I gave these a shot and they're great. Quite, great modulation, and enough power. I haven't taken the bike up to the mountains on these pads but might eventually and will probably carry the metal pads just in case.

No fins, no problem

I use these on my cross bike and they work great. I found the cooling fin'ed version of these pads to be unnecessary. I am just not heating up my brakes in 'cross races and training. I also throw my clincher wheelset on the same bike for road riding and haven't had an issue with brakes overheating. So, to save a few bucks and a few nanograms, I go with these G02A pads.

No fins, no problem

Check compatibility

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Ordered these after reading that they are "compatible with extensive range of Shimano brakes." No real specs provided here, so I kind of had to order them to check. Unfortunately not true in my case. Learn from my mistake and do your homework before ordering.

Resin Convert.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I started riding with Resin pads last season and may never go back to the metallic compound. I'm generally a light touch, controlled speed type rider and find with frequent breaking, these pads keep the rotors from heating up and squealing. They have plenty of power for a quick halt. Supposedly the resin breaks down faster than the metallic compound, but haven't had to replace them all that often. Great pads - stock up.

Got these break pads about a month ago and I have really liked them. They are not noisy and seem to be working very well.
