Since you started this conversation, I’d like to expand the question:
What about pads made for e-bikes? For example, looking at SwissStop, they have this: https://www.swissstop.ch/brakepads/discbrakes/disc32/disce/
With (alleged) characteristics of:
- long lasting, high endurance pad compound
- very easy modulation of braking force
- high temperature stability for consistent brake power
- organic formula is low noise and rotor friendly
While the “normal” version of these pads are described as:
High performance Kevlar, ceramic, brass and resin composite material. Provides excellent brake power with minimal effort at the brake lever. Performance is consistent in both wet and dry conditions and pad life is excellent. High quality springs included with every set (where applicable).
I’m thinking the e-bike pad is intended to stop a heavier machine. OR, is this just marketing? Does anyone have experience using e-bike-intended pads?
