      these pads are great. They bite and stop regardless of conditions. I can't think of a time when they've made noise. Don't bother with the resign pads.

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

            Great stopping power and almost always silent. Ice-Tech cooling really does reduce brake fade to provide more consistent braking power even on long decents.

            Comments about Shimano F03C Metal Pad:

            These pads came stock on my XT 785 brakes. Got a full year out of them, with significant riding and they grip fairly well in all conditions. Pads felt the same from day 1 through the end of their useful life. Can't complain. Cooling fins are neat, they look cool, and I assume they keep things cooler at the rotors. Never really wanted to feel the brakes after a long DH though!

                  Use these pads with shimano xt 785 brakes and 200mm rotors. One finger stopping power. Never experienced brake fade on DH trails. I have occasionaly had squeak when it rains, but it's not often and usually does not last for long. The metal pads take forever to wear out also.

                      Do the fins really matter? I can't say but I can say theres a ton of braking power here and they haven't ever faded even on long decants. I bought these and a cheap off brand set to see if the price is justified.

                        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.
