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

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great breaks. Quality stuff from SRAM as usual. Super easy to swap in and out if you're in a rush, and the price is amazing for what you're going to get. Sintered is the way to go as well. Keep crushing it SRAM!

Players in the game!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When in doubt grab new sintered brake pads for super smooth and controlled braking, quick to grab..and modulation is amazing. Sram Guide , bam!

Best Brakes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These brakes do their job, I like the sinter material much more than the organic pads. Sintered is grabs quicker and feels stronger. These do take a little bit of time to break in.

Best Pads for the Best Brakes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I built my Switchblade up with Guide Ultimate brakes which came with the organic pads. The organics are quiet and have a good life for flat ground and descents less than 10 minutes. Once I moved to the mountains, the organics didn't last long in the park or with long 30 minutes downs which had me switching to the sintered compound. These pads have amazing bite and continue to hold SRAMs exceptional modulation. They've also lasted an entire season w/no measurable rotor wear. These are my new go-to brake pad.

When they need replacing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

might as well just get the name brand pad, install them and forget about them. Get an extra pair to throw into your pack just in case.

Better than organic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these sintered pads to replace my organic pads. The difference is very noticeable. The sintered pads last for much longer and bite way harder. Make the switch!

Nice pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Easy to change, reduced the squeeking that my brakes previously had. Good price for a solid replacement pad.

I Can Stop Again

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pads are easy to change, and I have yet to hear any squeaking. Simple.

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


  • 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.
