I need to replace the pads on my Formula Rx's.
I had fitted some clarks sintered, but haven't been over inmpressed with them to be honest.
Any suggestions??

No idea really. I'm still running the original ones that came with my RXs (ok, RX20s, but they're virtually the same), and IMO they are just perfect.

i am using alloy backed pads from uberbike - much lightness and stop me well.

I like the sintered pads from Superstar Components.

Superstar sintered here too, tried just about everything out there and they are the best for the money by a long shot
