Shimano F01A Resin Disc Brake Pads

Shimano F01A Resin Disc Brake Pads

It’s your worst nightmare. You’re hauling down the trail, coming in hot to an unfamiliar corner. Round the apex and in your way is a jumbled mess of rocks, glass, and what may very likely be fresh horse droppings. There is no way you want to run into that stuff. You grab a handful of brake lever but nothing happens. Soft, squishy, and underpowered, there’s no missing it now. You plow into the mess of debris and down you go. Replace those worn out pads with genuine Shimano F01A Resin Disc Brake Pads and next time, have the control you need to steer clear of what may lie around the bend.

Resin pads mean maximum initial bite, excellent modulation and quiet operation. Pair these finned pads with your Shimano Ice-Tech rotors and you'll have maximum cooling performance to keep your braking performance even and predictable even on long descents.

Shimano F01A Resin Disc Brake Pads Specifications:

  • Aluminum Ice-Tech Cooling Fins
  • Resin Pad Material for maximum initial bite, smooth modulation and low brake noise
  • One package contains pads, spring and retaining clip for one brake caliper. You will need to buy two pad sets for a whole bike.

Compatible with these Shimano brake calipers:

  • XTR BR-M9000
  • XTR BR-M9020
  • XTR BR-M987
  • XTR BR-M985
  • Deore XT BR-M785
  • SLX BR-M675
  • Deore BR-M615
  • BR-RS785

Needed to replace my metallic pads. They were getting worn and I was sick of the squeaking when I got on them. Decided to try the resin pads and they are so awesome! No more noise and they really feel to me like they engage better. The fins on these help with cooling a bit also as I have felt less fade. After trying one set on the front after my first ride on them I got some for the back because I liked them so much. True they may not last as long as the metallic pads but they are well worth it. Told one of my best riding buddies about them and he switched and is happy as hell too.

This may be my second review on these. Resin pads wear out fast. They are quiet. I've recently purchased a Pivot 429 Trail which came with XTR Trail brakes and metallic pads. Like them a whole lot more.
Prices for resin pads are now $15 which makes high wear more tolerable.
I'm kinda over the Shimano brake thing after some friends really like the new SRAM Guides.

                        • A:

                          I don't know what version of m615's the other guy who answered had, but I ordered this set of pads based on his answer (and Jensen's specs ) only to find out that it is WAY too tight to make it work. For reference, I have a 2015 SC Bronson and the F01A pads are NOT COMPATIBLE with the stock m615 brakes. I think the J02A might be for the newer style and this one is for the older style? I'm ordering a set of those now so I guess we'll see...
