Shimano J04C Metal Disc Brake Pads

Shimano J04C Metal 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 J04C Metallic Disc Brake Pads and next time, have the control you need to steer clear of what may lie around the bend.

Metallic pads mean maximum stopping power and excellent modulation. 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 J04C Metal Disc Brake Pads Specifications:

  • Stainless Steel Base Plate
  • Aluminum Ice-Tech Cooling Fins
  • Metallic Pad Material for maximum stopping power and long life
  • One package contains pads, spring and retaining clip for one brake caliper. You will need to buy two pad sets for a whole bike.
  • These are the direct replacement for F03C pads. J04C have a revised and improved fin orientation and pad formulation.

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

You could buy at least 32 McDoubles for 1 set, but they wont last as long!
I have the 203/180 ice tech rotors and f#*@ resin pads, they get one drop of microscopic anything on them and they howl like elephant sitting on a pineapple (elephants howl, read a book, nerd). Also, resin pads wear like your girl or boyfriend wear's makeup, too much and comes off too fast. I have the m875 XT brakes front and rear I switched to these and will keep donating organs in the future to afford more of these metal pads that's if I ever burn through this set!

If you like metal pads then you can't beat these. Great on deore calipers and I haven't felt any brake fade on long downhills

Best pads I've used for my xtr trail brakes.
Best pads I've used for my xtr trail brakes. Longer lasting than resin pads and offer me enough bite.

Work, lasting, and quiet
Very fade resistant and reliable. Run them on the trail, at Whistler, the Alps, and East coast lift served and they always stop. Not much squeaking if ever!

Great stopping power and long life
Having tried both the metal and resin pads, I find the metal ones have more power and last a lot longer. They will squeal a bit on the first ride until they wear in, but this is only temporary.

Easy to install. Note that this kit does not come with a new allen screw, so make sure you don't throw your old one out!

Excellent
My SRAM RS brakes locked up twice so I switched to Shimano and these have better-stopping power than the SRAM RS. They also don't freeze or lock up.....which really cool when riding.

Will these pads work for the the new XT m8000 brakes? It doesn't list m8000 in the list of brakes they're compatible with but it sure looks like the right pads.
TimMY on Oct 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I've been using them on my XT M-8000's with Ice Tech rotors. They work great.
I noticed these are compatible with the Deore XT BR M785. Will they fit the Deore XT "BL" M785 caliper? (I believe BL is the previous generation to the BR?)
FriedEGs on May 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. These pads fit all the 785 series calipers.
will these work with rs505 calipers?
Glenn W on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Nope, the flat-mount calipers are smaller and won't fit the J04C pads. I have attached the correct pads.
