    These are very quiet pads. They seem to be wearing fast. The OEM Avid brand (organic)pads seem to last me one season and cost about $24. The serfas pads are lasting half as long - I use 2 sets per season but at [$] that's a great savings. I put about 1500km a year on my mtb bike - use that as a gauge for how long they may last for you.

    I noticed it delivers a little less breaking power than the old Avid's I had on, but that's not a big issue for easy xc riding. Compared to the original Avid set, it seems a little thicker, so it's good to reset the brake pistons at maximum in order to fit the pads and keep your wheel spinning freely. Haven't tested them in wet conditions yet.
    One other little thing: the name "Elixir" is misspelled in the manufacture's package: Exilir.

      Comments about Serfas Avid Elixir Disc Brake Pads:

      I purchased these brakes with trepidation. I assumed since they didn't cost nearly as much as the name brand they'd be ineffictive. I was wrong, they are just as good if not better than the name brand brake pads. I haven't had them long enough for a wear durability test, but so far so good and "no" noise during actuation.

        Finaly a brake pad for my Elixer brakes that's quite with great modulation. Night and day difference compared to stock pads. And at 1/2 the cost. Even if they only last a few months I will continue using.Its worth it they improved my Elixer 7's that much.

                Comments about Serfas Avid Elixir Disc Brake Pads:

                Seem to be identical to original pads but way cheaper. They are definitely a little thicker and so you may run into some problems with getting your rotor to fit in between. Fortunately I was able to bleed out a couple drops of fluid and make it work. They were slightly rubbing at first but now that they've been broken in they are working great.

                Comments about Serfas Avid Elixir Disc Brake Pads:

                I had the OEM brake pads and the noise they made was just driving me crazy. I wanted to try something different to get rid of the noise and I read a few of the reviews on here, and I figured for the price, why not. To my pleasant surprise these brakes make no noise so far. I've been riding on them for about 3 weeks with 3 rides/week. What I noticed is that the modulation and stopping power were really good on the first couple rides, by the third ride I noticed that they were even better than the original. I have only had them on a short time, so no comment on longevity yet, but if they last through at least one season, then for the price you cannot beat these!

                  Was a little wary about trying these because of the much cheaper price that OEM, but these work great. I've used them for a few years now. They wear well, are quiet, and brake smoothly

                        As quiet as the OE pads if calipers are properly alligned. They give a bit softer feeling and perhaps slightly better modulation. I ride in steep and extremely wet and muddy terrain, so quiet operation is greatly appreciated. They still deliver plenty of power, but if you need more - buy metallic.
                        All in all, very happy for replacing the OE paying 30% of the tag!

                              The stock pads that came on my Elixir 9s were HORRIBLE...noisy, didn't work well until hot, low initial bite, did I mention horrible?

                              These Serfas pads are exactly the opposite. They are WONDERFUL! They are dead quiet, good initial bite, no noticiable fade (even after loooong technical descents through the Colorado Rockies). They produce a little more dust than the stock ones (no biggie). They seem to be wearing at a good rate and also seem to be easier on the rotors than the stock pads were. I have stocked up on these and find no reason to use anything else. The only thing I can't account for is their wet performance...it is bone dry where I live so I have never run them in the wet.
