Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous good stoppers but only for the dry
got these pads in my new formula one brakes. they work amzing form the get go, but i had to cut my uplift day short due to the rear brake going to the metal due to excessive wear. i have only put in 10 days riding in these pads and only 4 of those days have been on steep break heavy tracks... today was the first time in the grime and they dissappeared pretty damn quick. lol off to whistler next week hopefully it will be dry so i get a full fortnight out of them, other wise i will need to buy the sintered ones. its true that organic last less time but this is a bit ridiculous - am very surprised at this, as all my other organic /normal pads on previous brakes/other bikes have lasted much, longer than this in all conditions riding. as a foot note. i once got a pair or "red - soft compound" DH pads from EBC during a holiday in france for my Hopes. they were magnificent for stopping brake fade due to heat , but i got one and half days out of it before going to the metal. so assumibng the formula ones greatness can be attributed to the soft compound brake pads

Brakes works at top, don't be afraid to compare to Shimano's , Sram or others most used... You only MUST install the proper pair of pads: organic works well in dry or dusty conditions, but with mud, water or snow you need a sintered pair. For every use XCountry, DHill, Allmountain or others...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Came with the bike. I don't know if they were organic or syntered one but although very good braking power they lasted for a way too short period of time. Always pedaled in dry conditions or very clean road.
