    Ashima Disc Brake Pad SOS Multi-Compound

    Sintered pads are harder wearing and work best in high temperatures, but are susceptible to overheating, which can severely compromise braking power. Organic pads work better in the cold. So which disc brake pad to go for? Ashima's inspired answer is SOS: a pad that is sintered - organic - sintered.

    The result is a pad with 3-times less heat transfer, hence 3-times less 'pump up', than a fully sintered pad, and the same cold-conditions performance as an organic pad.

    Q. Will these Deore 555 pads fit my Spyre breaks which I currently use Shimano 515,525 pads. Do these pads have the bite of organic pads but the durability of sintered pads?
    A. These pads are a different shape so won’t fit your brakes.  The organic parts allow high better performance in cold conditions and transfer less heat in to the fluid than sintered pads.  The sintered element increases the lifespan of the pads.  
    Q. The most recent mechanical disk brake pads I bought are a sintered variety exactly like those in the main screen picture, but I don't know which of the listed 'type' this is. The bike website ( recommends BR-M965 metallic pads for Shimano calipers. I have the Shimano calipers, but I would prefer the sintered pads. Can you tell me which type to buy, please?
    A. The pads pictured are the ones for XTR/XT/LX/Hone M535, which is what you would need for your M965 brakes.
