Nukeproof Science pads have been tested over the last year by our riders, blind tested against other pads, and found to outperform everything else on the market. These are the best brake pads we've ever used.
Made in Japan, all feature a semi-metallic compound, tailored for different riding conditions. Trail pads are high quality pad for any rider, whatever the conditions throw at you. Enduro offer higher performance for riders that like to use their brakes hard and need more durability. DH pads are for high speed racers scrubbing off speed on a run needing power, consistence and control.
All pads feature steel backplates for heat dissipation.
Nukeproof Avid Elixir Pad Compounds:
Good initial bite.
Very short bed-in time.
Strong initial bit.
High heat resistance.
Superior performance in wet and dry conditions.
Strong and consistent braking over wide range of speeds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Warren2013 Enduro pads - good stopping power but wear quickly in wet gritty conditions
Bought these to replace the stock Avids . The front rotor which doesn't see as much mud is still going pretty well but the back set has almost gone after less than 100km of riding .
Im 85kg on a XC bike so don't expect to run through pads so quickly
I won't buy the Enduro ones again . I might try the DH version.

The Enduro version of these pads are spot on for UK weather conditions, ive used them on both avid and formula brakes without any problems or fade

Rated 4 out of 5 by vailcycling Good winter pads
Got these as I was having problems with brake fade when riding at Davagh Red Trails. Rear brake was feeling none existant on quicker sections that required some heavy braking. I had replaced the original pads with Clarkes organic pads and initially they felt fine and a very gradual feeling when braking which was fine in the dry weather . The last month or so brake fade was getting worse so i was recommended these pads.
They are thicker than the other pads i have used so fitting and brake alignment need to be carried out with more accurracy if you don't want any rubbing on the disc.
However the braking once set up is incredible and feels very positive. I was able to adjust the lever out more and use less pressure and still achieved a confident powerful brake .
Tried them this week in the wet and they were just as strong so very happy with them .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Th0r Quite close to original price but real good
No complaints about the quality and performance, quite the contrary. Could be less expensive, though, since it's an other-than-original spare part. But okay, Nukeproof sure has become a big brand now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Matt5 Great power.
Really good feel and stopping power. However........ I now used them on 3 trails in the wet, already looking a bit low.

Brought the enduro pads and they work well, only problem is that they are slightly too thick and rub on the disc

My DH pads are still going strong after many many months of abuse from a 110kg rider who enjoys going down hill on an Enduro bike. I bought the DH pads because I wanted something that would last under my heavy braking and they have done a great job.
To reduce the pad noise I regularly give my rotors a good clean followed by a wipe down with an alcohol wipe. On occasion, when I'm feeling inspired also give the pads a quick rinse in water to remove the pad dust and other junk. That usually keeps the noise down to a minimum.
Totally stoked with the pad life I'm getting from these pads.
