Sintered brake pads offer a stronger initial "bite" with a higher mean friction level than the Organic material. Due to its hardness a Sintered pad has a longer lifespan than an Organic pad making this the best value for money option.
The Sintered formulation has a higher density and lower compressibility than its Organic equivalent, which makes it a very hard compound. This improved level of performance is due to the inclusion of copper fibres within the friction material mixture and ensures that RWD sintered disc brake pads are amongst the highest performing available anywhere today.
The performance of RWD Sintered pads remains consistent in wet conditions and due to the hardness of the material these pads are also very well suited to sandy trail centre riding. The higher friction level and wider operating temperature range also make this material a very good candidate for downhill riding.
*Please be advised that some discs are unhardened and therefore only suitable for use with softer organic formulations. If your disc is marked 'Resin pads only' then you should opt for RWD Organic disc brake pads. This will safeguard from scoring and premature wear of the disc when coupled with a harder or sintered brake pad.
Wiggle stock a large range of disc brakes pads. Disc brake pads are available in various fitments and compounds to suit your needs, softer pads will wear quickly but are ideal for wet weather use or downhill, whereas harder compound pads will last but not offer great wet weather performance. Most brake pads will be a medium compound unless otherwise stated, making them ideal for all round use.
RWD was born out of a passion for all things cycling. The company's 2 directors being descendant from the automotive brake friction industry and being avid mountain bikers, MTB disc brake pads seemed the obvious logical step to combine work interests with hobbies. RWD's combined knowledge and experience of over 30 years in the motorsport brake friction industry means that they understand friction. Their products are designed and tested by their own Engineers in the European offices in North Yorkshire, UK and they have full time Quality Engineers on hand in the Asia office to ensure consistent product quality - all to maintain the promise of HIGH PERFORMANCE and quality, race winning products.
