Incredible
My set up puts roughly 225lb pressure on the rear wheel. When broken in they provide any surface, (available) lock up braking capability.

Pads fit and work perfectly
The new pads went right in with no troubles. The only odd thing was they came with a big long cotter pin while my brakes had a tiny c shaped one. I just put the old ones back on since they aren't the kind you need to bend.

Durable pads for Pacific NW Conditions
Here in the Pacific NW, bikes take a real beating from the rain, snow, and gritty roads. Rims that used to last 3 winters I am lucky to get one winter on, as the rim calipers wear down the brake tracks, and eventually the rims crack, or the tire blows off the weakened rim. I switched to a front disc brake to address this problem (you DO NOT need a heavy rear disc if you're riding on pavement, so you just need a disc fork, not a whole new bike!), and now my rims last forever - I'm even using a carbon fiber front rim now. The rear rim lastz much longer too as I hardly even touch the rear brake; the front is so effective even downhill in heavy rain. I upgraded from mechanical to hydraulic disc brake, and the Shimano 785 brakes better with less force than my previous TRP Hylex. However, you want to switch the resin pads that come with the 785 with the F03C metal pads. Mine have lasted 4100 km before needing to be replaced (resin pads last maybe 500 km in the rain if you're careful), and they wore very evenly. This compares to 500-1000 km for rim caliper pads during the winter, plus having to replace the rim and rebuild the front wheel. (Note: I bought the brakes and pads. No gifts or payments! Also, I recommend you also get the Park hydraulic brake piston tool, you will need it! And replace the threaded bolt that keeps the pads in place with the cotter pin that comes with the pads. If you ride regularly in the rain, the bolt WILL get stuck and you'll have to drill it out, like I did!

Great response. Spoke to the representative at 4:00pm and received the parts the next morning inspite of the late order time. Did not expect them to ship until the following day.

These pads make these brakes the best hydraulics brakes I Have ever owned.
I used plenty of shimano's so far and some avid's, go with the xt, it is beyond strong, the pads compliment it well.

Great product at the right price! Quick delivery, Jenson US
Realized pads were shot just before a planned 50 mile off-road adventure. Jenson USA had the best price and quick delivery, so my ride was ready for the adventure! Shimano pads are a snap to swap out.
