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 some Alligator Semi Metallic Disc Brake Pads and next time, have the control you need to steer clear of what may lie around the bend.
I bought 2 sets of these for front and rear Shimano XTR brakes. I did about 4 rides with them and couldn't stand them anymore. They are super noisy and I wasn't getting strong power. Maybe I needed to break them in more. Switched to the Shimano Resin pads since they are quiet and powerful but don't last as long, I think they're a better value at $15 instead of $10. I'll keep the Alligators as a backup.
