Stopping Performance

SQUEAKING!

I have had these pads on for almost 6 months and they still squeak. I've tried the anti-squeak pads, and various anti-squeak lubes with the same poor results. The brakes have very good stopping performance if you can live with the constant squeaking. One of the main reasons I purchased these pads was the "Guaranteed to Never Squeak" in the description. I will switch to a standard pad this coming weekend.

Strength:

ebc greenstuff on rear, ebc yellowstuff on front of 2006 Mountaineer. Now I can barely get it to stop. I have to heat the brakes before they will grip. On a cold stop, I have to force the pedal to the floor. Terrible grip for daily driving, almost dangerous. They throw alot of dust and don't stop until they have heated up. I would not recommend these to anyone and will likely change them, despite the fact that the set was over $300 just for parts.
EBC does alot of advertising but their product is no where close to the quality they claim. Don't waste your money or risk your life with these horrible brakes.

Weakness:

won't stop when cold contrary to ebc claims they stop when cold. dust everywhere even going around the block. Have to stand on pedal to get SUV to stop with "allegedly top of the line ebc yellowstuff and greenstuff" these gimmicks are a total crock.

DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY

Fell apart

These pads simply fell apart, the pad material just fell of and left me with just the backing.

EBC didn't respond to emails even when I sent them pictures of the pads.

Strength:

Absolutely none. Unless you like the smell of burning brake disks.

Weakness:

They get way to hot way too fast, short (1/4 mile) fast descent and the disks were sizzling hot. On one hard brake application the brake lever on my BB7's went to the bars. Mmm. I adjusted the calipers, everything was good, until another hard brake application, and same story all over again. I know how to set up brakes, wasn't user error or cable stretch. These pads are DANGEROUS, don't buy them. Don't Don't Don't.

Don't buy these pads, they will hurt you, they are dangerous.

Strength:

Much more quiet than sintered pads. More feel and modulation. Great for getting rid of brake noise caused by dry dusty conditions. All you riders out there, stop expecting one pad to work in all conditions! Know what each pads is used for.

Weakness:

Doesn't last as long as a sintered pad. Dont use in the wet! They will disappear.

These are great pads in very dry and dusty conditions, if you want your brakes to be quiet with a little more modulation. I like my brakes to feel a tiny bit like a rim brake, and not so harsh. They will wear very quickly in the wet because they are not designed for it. I got tired of the hard feel and very noisy screach of sintered pads. These are the answer for my AVID BB7's and G2 Cleansweep rotors. I ride dry SoCal and they last about 75-100 hours of hard riding. I have found them to be cheaper, longer lasting, and more quiet than the Avid Organic pads.

Everything.

These pads a crap! I commuted 25km on them, very gentle ride - 30kph max speed, and they started to give off a burning smell after about 10km. At 25km the compound tore off one of the rear metal pad bases altogether and the remaining metal ripped into by rear disc. I now have to replace the back disc. The original pads lasted ~3000km. These pads are total crap. Do not buy them.

to be honest, none

Weakness:

they need strong brakes te make these work

these brake pads will dissapoint u, they need really stong brakes to make them work, on the dry its doable, once they get wet it gets even worse, u can increase the stopping power at an average rate but then they suddenly tend to loose it all, it happend a few times to me, tryed cleaning them a million ways and nothing seems to help.

If u need new brake pads and u want something that works better then standard ones dont buy ebc brakes
they dissapointed me a whole lot

only 2chillies for value as they were not expensive for me
only 1 for overall because the lack of stopping power

Strength:

Quiet, but so were my Avid pads that I will be switching back to.

Weakness:

Fade, short life (3 rides down hill), do not stop at all once hot.

Avid pads are far superior to these. Do not buy if you ride down hills at 40 mph+.

Avid, and they lasted a year under same conditions with no fading.

Can't think of many!

Weakness:

These pads were a complete disaster! They lacked the power of the original Shimano ones (on Deore M555 hydro), "squished" horribly (i.e. the lever nearly hit the bar under hard braking), and most importantly, once they wore in, they were worn out! I honestly got two muddy rides out of them! p.s. neither of them were real muddy, just normal in the autumn....

These were a disaster for me I am afraid. At that price, I would be bankrupt replacing them. If you have to guarantee that you will never see mud to run these, then that confines them to only using in mid summer. Otherwise in the UK and France, there is sometimes mud. And I kid you not, two rides.....they were just "dripping" goo down the disc on every ride, pad and grime just running down the disc and dripping on the floor! Given the size of disc pads, you can't make them so damn soft!! They are bordering on unsafe in anything other than dry conditions.
