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.
GOLD (Sintered HH Advanced Ceramic Compound) ??? If you want the ???edge??ť, 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??ť 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.
