MILES RACING - WE SLOW DOWN YOUR JOURNEY
VERSATILE, ALL-WEATHER USE: Semi-metallic brake pads are best suited for daily urban rides, dirt, XC, E-bikes, trail and light enduro rides, where bikers are not pumping on their brakes continuously. Rides are more fun with the smooth and effortless braking mechanism. Enjoy quieter rides and less rotor wear compared to sintered counterparts.
PREDICTABLE PERFORMANCE: Bikers have the benefit of significantly better brake performance compared to organic brake pads. You have better peace of mind with consistent and stable performance to cover a wide range of applications. Semi-metallic brake pads tend to function better in colder riding conditions.
PRICE-PERFORMANCE RATIO: Semi-metallic brake pads offer the benefit of a comfortable, firmer brake pedal feel. They are a valuable solution to bikers who are looking for a safe, durable braking solution that does not break their budget.
DURABLE: Durable metallic construction along with Kevlar additive makes these brake pads long-lasting. Special iron and copper compound formulation gives better resistance to heat.
RELIABILITY & COMPATIBILITY: Experience highly reliable, fade-free braking performance on road bikes, touring bicycles, e-bikes, e-MTB cycles, and low impact mountain bikes. Non-asbestos construction further ensures biking safety. Made in Germany and tested by independent testing companies.

To get the most braking power out of your new semi-metallic pads, it is important to follow these steps to break them in properly.
- Brake for 5 seconds while riding at a speed of about 7 mph. Repeat this process 3 more times.
- Brake from about 20 mph with medium power and release before coming to a complete stop. Repeat this process 20-30 times. You should feel the brake performance increase. Let the pads cool between each stop.
- Done - Ready for action!
