Galfer is to brakes as Xerox is to copying ... look no further if you want
the best in stainless lines, rotors, and pads. Galfer brake pads are produced in
a variety of compounds designed to provide an ideal braking experience for every
rider in every condition. Galfer pads feature stress released backing plates to
assure perfect flatness and less tendency to warp/age under hard braking
conditions. Consider the following features and benefits of Galfer's compounds
in making your pad selections:
BLACK (Semi-Metallic Carbon) - Upgrade your brakes without paying an upgraded price,
These GG rated pads out-perform most original equipment pads (typically only
G-rated) by maintaining functionality at temperatures as high as 700
degrees. They offer extreme versatility with the ability to be used on both
front and rear, and on both street and dirt with excellent effectiveness.
These semi-metallic/carbon pads offer great longevity while limiting rotor
wear. The black compound pads provide a strong progressive feel allowing for
a controlled braking modulation.
GREEN (Kevlar Ceramic Organic) - If you need to stop on a dime, you better put on the
'Green'. The Kevlar-organic Green pads offer powerful, initial bite time
after time with no fade. The versatility of these pads is unmatched. They
can adjust to abrupt temperature and moisture changes and take little time
to recover between braking. They can be used in all types of riding whether
it is street, dirt, race... and any combination of each. These are better for
an aggressive rider, since these offer one or two finger stopping power. If
rotor wear is of great concern, the Galfer green is an optimum choice. They
won't last quite as long as the black or OEM pads, but their soft organic material composition causes minimal damage to the rotor surface.
GOLD (Sintered HH Advanced Ceramic Compound) – If you want the
“edge”, the ultimate in stopping feel and control, the sintered metal
and ceramic pad is for you. The composition allows for ultimate friction
with unmatched stopping power. Great for all weather riding; requires no
warm-up time and pads “cool off” as soon as pressure is released from
the brake lever. Requires very little brake pressure under repeated
braking, with little wear on rotors, and exhibits a consistent bite with
a long life span.
For many riders, the ideal combination is using Galfer Green in the front with
Galfer Black or Gold in the rear.
