I am looking for some new pads for my M4s and will probably go sintered for winter.

Anyone have any advice? I find the Hope organics I have now a little squealy when wet but I have some sintered ones on the wifes bike and they are silent when soaked though no idea what make they are as they came in the brakes used.

Anyone have any advice?

I've found Hope's sintered pads great in the pads. Good braking power and also seem to last ages.

I have the Tech V2s on my orange 5, had hope pads Organic front and Sintered on the back. Bought some kevlar pads from Superstar Components thinking they would give better wear and bite than the Organic ones but have now found after 2 maybe 3 big rides they have worn out. :roll:
Will be going back to Hope pads when this set are done.

I've got Hope Sintered on my M4's and think they're ace. Pretty sure I could chuck myself over the bars if I tried hard enough. Seem to last as well. :wink:
