Shimano G01A Disc Brake Pad

Non-finned (non-Ice-Tech) replacement Shimano brake pads for the newer style (2012 and newer) Shimano disc brakes.

Serving as great replacement pads after you've worn the originals, these give up a little bit of brake-cooling for a much lower price. While these are more than adequate for most riders, serious downhillers on long and fast descents require the finned Shimano Ice-Tech pads.

G01A

  • Resin pad with Aluminum backplate
  • Fits XTR BR-M985, XT BR-M785, SLX BR-M675/666, BR-R785, Alfine BR-S700, Cyclocross BR-CX75 & Road BR-R515 calipers
  • Resin pad with low noise and excellent power modulation
  • Includes spring
  • Qty "1" is one set of pads, enough for one caliper

          The break pads were recommended by a friend and they are great. I am not sure I would have been able to pick these if I did my own research. there are too many to choose from.

              Comments about Shimano G01A Disc Brake Pad:

              These pads are OEM replacement pads for XT brakes, but WITHOUT the expensive ICE cooling fins. They are squeak free and have gobs of stopping power.

              With the cheap price, there is no need to buy the knock-off alligator pads.

                A lot cheaper than xt pads with cooling fins. For my mostly flat XC trails I have no issues with the performance of these pads. Be sure to reset your calipers when installing new pads.

                  Comments about Shimano G01A Disc Brake Pad:

                  These were really easy to install, and IMO way easier to bed in than their sintered metal counterparts. I didn't end up using the securing pin they provide (I had a set of heat sink sintered before with a screw in post, and end fastener that is much more secure), but otherwise, for 95 percent of people who aren't doing super aggressive downhill, these pads are actually an improvement. You will get a slight decrease in absolute grip strength, but with these pads there is more slope to the brake pressure, as opposed to a more ON OFF feeling with the sintered. Still able to lock up the wheels whenever I want with one finger, I just feel the braking is more "artful" with resin pads.

                    Way better than sintered and these do not wear out fast.
