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.

Replacement Pads for My Guide Ultimates

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are the factory replacement pads for Guide Brakes. They work well. I use the organic pads.

They're Grreeeatttt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Fits Guide RSC brakes! Awesome stopping power and very easy to install.

Organic Goodness

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a pair of the organic brake pads and they work great.
For those a bit confused on what the difference might be, the organic pads are better for drier climates and give you more bite when you break. However, the sintered pads are better for wetter riding, and tend to last longer in general, especially when going down sustained downhill trails.

Look no further

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

SRAM has made a really impressive brake with the Guide series. The set of pads that came stock on my Hightowe LT lasted me 4 months, including a week of riding in Whistler.
Get the best brake pads for the best brakes!

Grabs my rotor!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Grabs my rotor when I grab the brakes! Love how that works! Nice replacement! I went with the sintered so I can really ride the brakes when I go down a hill that is way out of my league. :)

Slow your roll

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been a fan of the sintered pads for sometime now. Sure the organics are great, but the short lifespan when using them often on sustained downhills is too big of a drawback for me to justify. The sintered, on the other hand, have treated me right and are durable, quiet, and get the job done. I highly recommend getting an extra set to have in the toolbox or bring on trips so you aren't stuck without a critical replacement item when the time presents itself. Be prepared & slow your roll!


  • 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.
