I have XTR Brakes as you all know, Well most of you know.
does anybody know what difference the normal XTR pads are that come in the Brakes are like compaird to the Titanium Spare pads i think they are sinterd aswell you get with them ?
My XTR brakes don’t have That EDGE where they will take me over the bars with one touch, they wer put on by Westbrook and…my mams was fitted by bike scene and they have the (EDGE) and so does my dads wich wer done in Westbrook aswell.
if anyone here has XTR Brakes and got a spare set of pads with them (could you tell me the Diff between the current ones and Spare please if you know)
Depending on how you buy the brakes you get a set of both sintered and organic.
Theoretically Organic are better for stopping but they disappear in no time in wet/mud as a general rule.
Most UK riders run sintered all the time as the weather changes so often it’s not worth swapping them around as if you forget as Autumn/winter sets in it can be a set of pads down the drain.
Your problem is more likely to be due to some pad contamination. There are various tricks from putting them in the oven and using thinners but I don’t think on bike pads either are recommended as it damages the bond to the backing plate and the last thing you want is the pad disengaging under braking and yuo have to frantically pump the lever to get the backing plate to touch the rotor.
Obviously plenty of people have done both and been fine.
Yours don’t sound too bad as they still work so try cleaning the rotor with some thinners/disk rotor cleaner and see what happens.
If you replace the pads clean the rotor and bed the pads in as the instructions.
