      Comments about Shimano F01A Resin Disc Pad:

      These are great pads. I've gone through 3 sets of these, and have no desire to replace them with an aftermarket brand. I live in a hilly area where I commute by bike, and also ride very steep trails. I weigh 190lb with gear. These brakes usualy last about 2,000mi on the front and 1,000mi on the rear. Thankfully SLX675 brakes make the pads a piece of cake to change (unlike AVID's where you pretty much just throw them away when the pads wear out!).

              switching from metal to resin pads I had a little noise on the wear-in, but gone after a few miles. super easy install and good quality. I like the feel of the resin over the metal pads, just smoother and seem to modulate well.

              Comments about Shimano F01A Resin Disc Pad:

              Bought these to replace the metal compound pads on my XT 785 brakes. I'm expecting a slightly shorter lifespan from them than I did from the others, but the resin is grippier and stops a bit better. I'd buy the resin again. Never heard so much as a squeak from them either. Love the cooling fins too.

                Comments about Shimano F01A Resin Disc Pad:

                Just like everything else about my Shimano XT brakes, these are great. They're easy to install, quiet and perform fantastic. Using them on my front brake, XT with 180mm RT86 rotor, and have no complaints. They continued to give me great performance throughout a race that took place during a torrential downpour, so that brake combo and these pads works substantially better wet than other brakes I've ridden.

                    These replaced the stock metal pads that came with the XT disk break set. These seem to be a bit smoother and a whole lot quieter. And I don't feel any real difference in stopping power. I'll be staying with the resin pads from now on.

                          I purchased the ones with no fins before these. They worked fine for most rides however during an Enduoro race I would lose my rear brake due to fading. Once I switched to these the issue went away.

                            I put these in my rear caliper because I was having contamination and squealing problems with the FOC3's. These are quiet and seem to have equal if not better performance. I wonder how durable they will be; but it's not a huge issue because their performance is so good.
