Quiet, Very Quiet

It was very easy to install, easier than I expected. This includes adjusting the caliper position and the rotor. I appreciated the very unusually quiet sound and the easy feel against my rotor/disc. Beyond this, the pads let me down a little, concerning the most important aspect of its purpose, stopping. How long should it take to "break in" and get the desired stopping distance? I have ridden the bike for hundreds of miles and have had to rely very heavily on the semi-metallic front pads to get the gravel bike to stop on demand. They've been adjusted as tightly as possible as I am not a fan of long brake lever travel. While I am finally beginning to feel better results, It should not have taken so long.

I will try other brands for certain next.

I put these in my mechanical disc brake set-up which is iffy under the best of conditions! I installed these pads and then left for K-Falls to do the Outback. I was pleasantly surprised at how well these worked on a loaded bikepacking bike and in all types of conditions

It's important to do the initial hard stops. Otherwise, stopping takes longer. They are incredibly quiet and smooth. Quite easy to install

Fine braking, but noisy.

I replaced the pads that came with my TRP Spyre brakes with these - no complaints about the braking but they howl in the wet and squeak in the dry - unlike the original pads.

I bought these to replace my stock TRP Spyre pads.

I was hoping for quieter and better stopping power, but I haven't noticed any difference.

Long lasting. Good stopping power.

These work great for what they do. They have good stopping power, are very easy to install and have lasted longer than I anticipated.
