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.

  • Each package includes 2 brake pads

Nice Upgrade

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I upgraded from the organic pads that came with my bike. I ride pretty hard and these pads take the abuse well. I'll buy sintered pads again when these wear out.

Easy Swap

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Swapping worn out brakes pads for new ones was mega easy. I had a pair of the Organic pads on my Yeti and they were pretty worn out. I went for a set of the Sintered pads for a little extra durability.

I have the Guide RS brakeset and all I had to do was remove the screw, slide out the old worn brake pads, slide in the new brake pads, put the screw back in and then take on a test ride to make sure everything works properly.

After that I just needed to adjust my brakes at the levers and stopping was easy.

The Sintered definitely felt like they grabbed just a split second later than the Organic pads.

easy to change and work great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

sram has made these pretty simple to change out. they work great and haven't heard any squeaking. I am using the Sintered pads and they have been stopping me just fine.

pump the brakes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They work! I prefer the organic pads, they feel like the give a little more modulation. But it also could just be in my head.

Brake Pads

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Solid brake pads for Guides. Work as you would expect. I generally prefer metallic over the organic/resin.

Stops my bike

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

That's all I need, to stop the bike. I like sintered compound for more downhill rides

Stop

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Replacing your brake pads is important to ensure your bike is running safely. I went with the metal pads for a bit more bite. These are sold per brake with 2 pads, so make sure to order 2 for both the front and rear brake.

Run Guides, stop on time

  • 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.

Consistent pair after pair

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've only used these brake pads since switching to SRAM Guides two years ago. They are durable, quiet, and efficient. I have no complaints!

Quiet Pads

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Haven't had any squeaking or issues with them thus-far. Great brake-pads.

AS advertised

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

New brakes are great. extra pads when you need them is better. Can not complain

Winner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are the standard choice for replacing the pads on your SRAM Guide or XO Trail brakes. Go with organic for quiet brakes and better bite. The organic will wear quicker though. Go with the sintered if you want your pads to last longer, or you are a heavy rider. The sintered might squeal a bit when wet though.

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.

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.
