And their friction answer is incomplete. We've known for a while that resin pads' operating window is lower down the temp scale (they grab colder but also overheat colder), but the missing part of the question is if the windows are the same size. In other words, resins come up to temp faster allowing max friction earlier, but does the friction fall off happen at a high enough temp to allow the same total amount of braking? In the past, except for a light rider on flattish terrain, the resin operating window has been way too small, with the added deficit that when the max temp is exceeded, the pads break down or glaze pretty rapidly. Maybe they resolved this, but that answer doesn't seem to imply such.
