FR105M Metal Pads use a metallic friction compound made from a sintered blend of high friction metal powders. The performance advantage of these pads is their consistency in all conditions including serious mud and long steep descents. If you’re a big fan of that sort of riding (we are), or are on the heavier side, metal pads are a must. Metal pads also last much longer than other compounds. FR105M Metal Pads can be used as a direct replacement for Shimano B01S, B03S, E01S pads and other pads with the same shape.
Metal pads will keep you stopping all day... on any slope... for months...
Wetter might not be better, but riding always beats not riding.
Straight away after fitting these pads had considerably more stopping power than the OEM pads. They are slightly noisier but that is a small price to pay for safer riding.
Nice to see a company giving good service and product at a good price
I have been using resin one side, metal on other. Performance has been good; never have any problem stopping.
They do the job
