The Problem with Sintered Brake Pads

Sintered brake pads have long been favored for their impressive stopping power and resilience in harsh riding conditions. However, there are some significant drawbacks associated with sintered brake pads:

  1. Environmental Concerns: Sintered brake pads contain copper, which has raised environmental concerns due to its toxic properties. Copper pollution from brake pad wear can harm aquatic ecosystems, leading to regulatory changes.

  2. Noise: Sintered pads can produce  noises when cold and vibration squeal when applied, which can be annoying for both the rider and those nearby.

  3. Reduced Initial Bite: Sintered pads can have a slightly delayed initial bite, meaning they require more lever force to engage, potentially affecting your control in critical moments.

  4. Rotor Wear: Sintered pads can be harsh on rotors, leading to increased wear and potentially higher maintenance costs.
