The Nukeproof Shimano XTR M965 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mekon Don't last long
XC version - Look nice tucked away in your caliper but they don't last long. Might try the enduro next if CR get them in stock.

I bought these because my prior pads were making a loud honking when braking, I tried baking and sanding etc nothing worked.
The Nukeproof had good reviews so I decided to try them.
No More Honking, and braking is also very nice, its not a sudden STOP, braking comes in with a slight amount of control whereby you can feed a slow down amount of brake or a full stop with a mm more brake. Pads also had yellow edging which looks nice.
Def worth buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nemroth Good replacement pads
Bought them to replace the original pads in the front brake. Very happy with the result, it seems like a different brake. No noise and more brake force

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous This is a review of the Enduro pads. I only ride in the Pennines, usually short 17km rides but it is a very hilly area, shouldn't be an issue for these pads but read on....At first I was impressed, with good stopping power and no noise. However after 1 month of owning them they have faded away to nothing. They did so so gradually that I could have been injured as when I was descending through a forest I pulled the lever and got nothing in response. Tested the brake with my old Shimano pads from the front and full braking was returned. In short shocking product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous good all round pads!
I have had a set of these pads on my bike now for 3 weeks. I am using them in SLX-665 brakes and they do there job very well, slow me when required, and stop me when really needed. All in I am very pressed with the enduro pads. They do suffer from heat fade, but tell me a pad that doesn't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous poor reliability
I bought a set to try 23/1/2011 initial results good, week after bought another set for front. After 4 weeks28/2/2011 approx 130 miles first set pads totally disintergrated, result ruined rotor. Back to Shimano for me no problems with these for last 2 years, changed other set immediately for big S, LBS prices, can't afford another rotor. Would have given no stars but this is not an option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous excellent, cheap.
the 'enduro' pads are about as good as Shimano 'metal' pads, but they're much quieter.
i will happily buy them again.
