Other brake systems use organic friction materials in their brake pads to insulate the caliper from the heat generated during braking. Unfortunately, their performance falls off dramatically in wet conditions and they wear rapidly in dirty and muddy environments. But Hayes developed a special frictional material for Harley-Davidson® motorcycles that provides the same positive braking…dry, wet or muddy. Plus, our non-organic pads provide longer life…especially in dirty and muddy conditions. You'll also like our quick pad change…it can be done in seconds without tools!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Braking to the max
For those that aren't quite so bright? The harder the pad compound the longer it takes to get to max friction.so if your just a easy/slow sort of rider a softer compound will be better for you.if your downhilling etc the hard will work best but the hard metallic ones with more abrasive fibers will wear disc more.
With soft ones they will fade when at a lower temperature than hard/race types.
so it's horses for courses.you can use copper slip on backing but not a spoonfull just a dab.But also like anything ie chain/sprockets/rings etc will wear quicker when covered in mud/crap as thats also an abrasive.
One thing that does work esp on front is line/gap across pad which gives you a double leading edge to brake which is what gives you feel/control.(like we use on our race/rally cars)have seen it on some pads.And as for braking hard then pouring water on them! if you get them that hot all you'll do is buckle/twist caliper as well as different metals heat up/cool down at different rates.
Also has been said make sure it's all in line and pads pulling up square to disc and disc bolts tight and not warped.
One other thing is if compatible is use silicone/synthetic fluid as boil temperature is higher and don't absorb water like normal stuff does which is where alot of fade comes from that's one reason you change b fluid on motor vehicles as well.
One thing you should do which applies to any braking is brake hard then as you slow down start to release lever/pedal which then gives you control and less jerking on forks/headset etc so you don't get that sudden jerk as you stop (watch a car of a poor drivers stopping from the side is best you'll see the wheels pushed back then as stop it all moves back with a big jerk as they still have foot hard on pedal)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous The original and best.
I always go for these pads.
I've tried all the cheaper versions but they do not hold up as well as the original hayes products.
For the extra money they are well worth it. It's only a couple of quid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Hey these are great I brought them the other day and they came in post today . I had no noise from them at all. I also brought a new disk and fitted them both at the same time. No problem.

when i put new pads in my hayes calipers i fill the square hole with moist mud and take my bike for a short blast get them hot and wash out with clean water my pads have always broke in straight away no squeals after this unless i jetwash my bike and get soap in them then i just repeat the above the only problem i have over other calipers is the fact that no matter how well you set them up(local bike shop has confirmed this) one pad always wears more than the other

Can't beat these pads no one makes them quite like Hayes and the sintered pads are brilliant. They are so good that i even run a freeride/downhill bike with 205mm rotors with a set of Hayes 9's occasionally - think I'm mad? did Fort William last year and survived - they're really that good.

Tengo una MTB, tengo freno de disco delantero y trasero de la marca Hayes, y necesito pastillas de freno "Hayes Hayes HFX-9-Mag-MX-1 Disc Brake Pads" del modelo: Sintered Metalic Gold. Cuántas pastillas de freno vienen en el paquete? Cómo se cambia? (videos, étc)
También quiero cambiar el liquido de freno delantero, pero el fabricante dice: " Use solamente el líquido para frenos DOT 4 ó DOT 3. No use ningún lubricante con petróleo ya que que esto causaría que las partes de goma aumentaran. Hayes recomienda el uso del fluido para frenos DOT 4 ó DOT 3. Limpie el disco y las pastillas sólo con alcohol isopropílico" Quería saber si vendeís el producto o similar? Cómo se cambia (videos, explicaciones, étc. Gracias! Un saludo!
