Bicycle disc pads are an essential component of a bicycle's disc brake system. Disc brake systems use a rotor attached to the wheel hub and a caliper that houses two or more brake pads. When the brake lever is squeezed, the brake pads are forced against the rotor, creating friction and slowing down or stopping the bike.
Disc pads are typically made of a composite material that is designed to provide good stopping power and durability while minimizing wear on the rotor. Common materials include metallic compounds, organic compounds, and semi-metallic compounds. Metallic compound disc pads are known for their high stopping power and durability, but they can be noisy and generate more heat than other types of pads. Organic compound disc pads are quieter and generate less heat, but they may wear out more quickly than metallic pads. Semi-metallic compound disc pads are a middle ground between metallic and organic pads, offering good stopping power, durability, and low noise.
When replacing disc pads, it is important to choose the correct type of pad for the specific brake system and rotor being used. It is also important to properly bed in the new pads by gradually applying and releasing the brakes several times to ensure proper contact and friction between the pads and rotor. Proper maintenance of disc pads, including regular inspection and replacement when worn, can help ensure safe and reliable brake performance.
