I heard of some aftermarket pad makers doing 'superlight' alu backed brake pads (A2Z, Discobrakes). Not been able to find any for my mini monos though. Anyone know if they are available and where to get 'em?

Not really sure on the standard weight. I found an interesting article a guy wrote about putting his brakes on a weight weenine diet to save a few grams. Fancy doing the same on my Hopes.

they have the superlights for others here but not for minis
and not the a2z ones that i can see either :?
