I would say that the number one problem that can happen with any new pads is when people fail to bed them in properly. If you don't run them through a few heat cycles while they are still clean to harden them up, then any pad will disintegrate on the first muddy descent.



not heard of that one before, so call me sceptical but unless I am mistaken, sintered pads are made by fusing together metallic stuff under high temperature and pressure, I ffail to see how you can get them any harder by doing a few hard stops.

I know I have bought some SS pads but not sure if I have fitted and use them, I sujspect not so cannot comment on their longevity.
