For anyone who's interested Bike.de has done what looks to be some quite scientific testing of various brake pads. The google translated german isn't the easiest to read, but the results are interesting. They have a fairly extensive test that they did in 2014 available as a PDF, and a newer updated one from this year: [http://www.bike-magazin.de/komponenten/bremsen/mtb-scheibenbremsen-30-bremsbelaege-im-grossen-test/a23181.html](http://www.bike-magazin.de/komponenten/bremsen/mtb-scheibenbremsen-30-bremsbelaege-im-grossen-test/a23181.html) [http://www.bike-magazin.de/komponenten/bremsen/test-mountainbike-bremsbelaege-2017/a37195.html](http://www.bike-magazin.de/komponenten/bremsen/test-mountainbike-bremsbelaege-2017/a37195.html) After having read through all of it, it was interesting to note that there seem to be some pretty marked differences between the friction materials being offered by different manufacturers. Overall it seem like Koolstop sintered offer a pretty good balance of power and wear characteristics. Take from it what you will...
