One thing I have a minor niggle with in bike reviews is when reviewers say that metallic brake pads offer more power than resin. I genuinely believe this doesn’t hold water.
All pad types have pros and cons, but to simply say metallic has more power is simlply not true imo. Even some pro’s use resin pads for more initial bite (see Jack Moir at recent EWS win), whilst metallic deal with heat better and a are better in the wet. I’m on a semi metallic btw, so I’m not pro resin or otherwise, it’s just I don’t think saying metallic has more power is accurate. It’s a case of looking at what suits the individual. Oh, resin only discs can dissappear though.
Really enjoy the site btw and the reviews are great, so the above comment is meant positively.
