Metal/Sinter pads -
Metallic pads have more brake power and less wear compared to organic pads. Under wet conditions they tend to be more noisy. With sintered pads thermal stress on the brake is higher than with organic pads. Sintered, metallic brake pads for all Avid Juicy models, BB7 and SRAM Komfy disc brakes.
Organic/resin pads -
Organic brake pads have a softer braking sensation, are silent under wet conditions and put less thermal stress on the brake. They do have more wear and less braking power than sintered brake pads. For all Avid Juicy models, BB7 and SRAM Komfy disc brakes.
