Motorcycle brake pads are composed of different compounds to achieve different levels of performance. Organic brake pads have a lower heat rating and do fine as stock replacements. EBC and Galfer sintered HH-rated pads can withstand enormous amounts of friction and heat. This results in very little brake fade and a lot of 'bite' on the rotor. All sintered brake pads are aggressive with high heat tolerances, so if you want a more mild brake pad take a look at the Galfer Black brake pad. We also have even higher-end race pads made exclusively for track use.
