Did the job. Lasted just as long as other pads I've tried. Is a pad a pad?

Love these pads got the sinterd ones. ive got the shimano m535's and these pads provide so much better stopping power and a much longer life than the pads originally fitted. they have no squeel in the dry but are deafening in the wet bus still have superb power but that squeel is funny to frighten the hell outa old people so its well worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Dissapointing
I bought these at christmas, unable to get hold of normal XT pads. I have Shimano Deore M535 brakes, and loved the pads orginally fitted. However, these I have had for 2 months and still have a strange "metal on metal" feel, unlike the smooth progression of the shimanos. The power was also low. I managed to wear out half of a pad on one decent, causing the lever to move 50% towards the lever. I had to stop to let the smoke from the pad clear. I am dissapointed with the feel, power and longevity of this product, especially compared to the shimano equivelants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Better than Shimano, and cheaper!
I tried the sintered version of these about a year ago because my local bike shop were out of stock of Shimano's version. They are so much better in every way than the Shimano version; the stopping power is better, they don't squeak, and they seem to last much longer (even after riding in The Peaks). And, of course, they're much cheaper. I've never looked back and have used these ever since.

Had these pads for about 6 months now. Still loads left on them (Sintered). Really good power. I know everyone has slated these pads but i have not had any problems at all. Once they bed much more powerful then my original Deore LX pads which lasted about 5 Rides!

I've a very high opinon of the Shimano Saint brakes. Mine have worked brilliantly since I fitted them.
However, I recently had a problem with one piston sticking a bit and this caused the pad to touch the disc. I managed to wear an organic pad down from new to ruined in 20 minutes of riding with it rubbing. I know rubbing brakes are wrong, but I was still surprised by how quickly they wore away.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Using the goodridge sintered metal pads in saint brakes. They are ok, alot thicker then the standard shimano untis, but they just don't seem to grab as well as the shimano pads and i have used them for 5 days worth of DH runs, more then enough time to bed in. I will get the proper shimano ones next time.
