J04C Metallic Disc Brake Pad

Keep your Shimano XTR or XT brakes running smoothly with the Shimano XTR/XT (J04C) Metallic Disc Brake Pad. Made with a steel base and featuring Shimano's trademark cooling fins, these pads reinvigorate your braking system for confident stopping power and modulation. Compared to organic pads, metallic pads brake better at high heats, so they'll stay responsive through long, sketchy descents. They also last longer, though the added reliability comes the cost of less initial bite and a bit of extra noise. Each package contains pads, retaining clip, and spring needed to replace the pads on one brake caliper.


  • A brake pad for long periods of heavy braking
  • Aluminum fins promote cooling
  • Metallic pads wear longer than organic
  • Each package includes 2 brake pads
  • Item #SHI00DF

Not for Ultregra road brakes

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

If you get to this page because you searched for ultegra bake pads, these are NOT what you are looking for. These are mountain bike brake pads. I have informed competitive cyclist about this, but they can't/won't fix the bad link so here's you warning. You will have to pay for return shipping to return these mountain bike pads if you purchase them thinking they will fit a road bike.

Wrong brake pads ordered

I returned this product before using it

I was very thorough with the online chat persons. I gave all my specifics and the Shimano pads cooling fins were too large for my caliper. Would not fit. Requesting return of charge on my account shortly after I send wrong part back. Keep you posted

Shimano GRX 400 brakes

I've used it several times

I ordered the pads that backcountry lists under the name "Shimano BR-RS805/RS505 Flat Mount Metallic Ice-Tech Disc Brake Pad", which are the L04C pads, and they fit my GRX 400 brakes, which came new with the L03A resin pads.
