Pad Compound
There are a lot of great aftermarket brake pads out there but very few work as well as the factory brake pads the manufacturer produces. Shimano's own Type N Brake Pads are no different. They feature Ice-Tech cooling fins to combat heat generated from braking. The cooling fins can be seen sitting at the top of the brake pad (above the braking surface) and tests have shown they work tremendously. 

With terrific wear characteristics, heat dissipation, braking power and consistency why would you choose anything else? 

Who's this item for: Riders in need of replacement brake pads for their Shimano XTR BR-M9120, XT BR-M8120, or SLX BR-M7120 brakes.

Pad Material:
  • Resin - Organic, Offers great noise reduction regardless of braking in dry or wet conditions.  The braking performance however is affected when the operating temperatures increase (sustained braking). Resin - Organic brake pads due tend to wear out faster than Sintered - Metallic pads but your brake discs last longer.
  • Sintered - Metallic, Tend to be noisier but in both wet and dry conditions but are more temperature stable and offer better braking power. They do last longer than the Resin - Organic pads but wear out your brake disc faster. 
Brake caliper compatibility: 
  • XTR BR-M9120
  • XT BR-M8120
  • SLX BR-M7120
  • Deore BR-6120 
Not compatible with Saint, Zee, or XT BR-M8020 due to the shape of the fins (go for Type H, or Type D). 

Stand out features: Aluminium cooling fins to help combat heat related issues that affect braking performance. 

What's in the box: 
  • 1 x pair of brake pads
  • 1 x retainer spring
Non-finned pad alternative: Check out the Type D brake pad for a non-finned alternative that will fit a wider variety of Shimano 4-piston calipers. (see link below)

Pros: Ice-Tech cooling fins have been proven in testing to reduce heat build up from heavy, sustained braking.

Cons: Not compatible with Shimano's earlier model 4-piston brakes due to the shape of the fins.
