are some particles, like aluminum flakes,
sticking to the rubber compound. Does
this mean that the rubber damages the
Under normal circumstances, the rim
eventually will wear out by any kinds
of material. But if the brake pads contain
metal they will wear out faster. Our
compound contains no metal so it will
cause less damage to the rim. A lot
of our customers rims are produced
by join pin method, the aluminum flake
accrue when the surface of joint area
isnt smooth and after the pad goes
past that area the aluminum flakes stick
into the rubber. This can happen with
any brand of brake pads. Consumers need
to remove dirt, rocks, or other material
that may stick in the rubber during
the ride to ensure the quality of rim
and proper use of the brake pads and
Can your ceramic fiber brake shoes be
used on ceramic rims?
Our compound is suitable for steel,
alloy, and aluminum rims. It is not
for ceramic or carbon rim. We have brake
pads that are made especially for ceramic
and carbon rims.
Is your brake shoes softer than others?
There is a standard hardness on rubber
brake shoes which is between 85 to 88.
Our hardness is in this range and is
the same with other brands. The texture
feeling is different in our pads as
compared to others because the flexibility
of ceramic fiber. So it has greater
power to grab the rim during brake.
Is there different lining for ceramic
rim and carbon rim?
Yes. Normally, the ceramic rim is harder
than standard alloy or aluminum rim.
There are different options V harder
lining for harder rim, or softer lining
for harder rim. It comes with two different
results- first one, has less stopping
power but the lining last longer; the
other has excellent braking performance
and wears out fast. It just depends
on what quality that riders look for.
And the carbon rim only has one solution-
soft lining to soft rim.
When I put the brake shoes on and found
the front wheel squeal a little and
rear wheel is silent then I switch the
brake shoes around and the problem still
have. Is that brake shoes problem or
I need the toe-in adjustment?
If you put the same pad in the front
wheel and it squeal than the result
will be the same on rear wheel. If the
result are different you may need to
check your hub and wheel and do some
alignment. Our brake shoes or pads dont
need toe-in adjustment. Simply put on
and tighten up then go.
Is the braking performance compatible
with other brand metallic compound?
Our organic disc brake pads can resist
the temperature to 400oC and normally
the braking performance is excellent
in both dry and wet condition. For the
best performance, please resurface or
change your worn rotor before installing.
Since your worn rotor will leave an
uneven surface and when you put the
new pads on it only touch and wear the
Is there a squealing noise on your disc
Yes, a little. On the disc brake pads
we can not guarantee no squeal since
there are many outside factors to involve
with the sound. But it is quieter than
others. The outside factors included
the material of rotor, the thickness
of the rotor, or after heated the flatness
of the rotor surface, the material of
the pad and if there is anything between
the pads and the rotor. These all can
affect performance and sound.
