Bicycle disc brake pads compatible with Zoom DB280 DB550 DB450 DB350 disc brake.
When do you replace your brake pads?
Dymoece recommends not letting the pad’s braking material wear thinner than 0.9 mm, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to replace them sooner than that. My personal rule is to not let the pads get any thinner than the thickness than a dime. You’ll be able to also know that they have got worn much too thin once the pad spring starts making contact with the rotor. If that is happening you know that you will have replaced the brake pads awhile back!
How to select bicycle disc brake pads?
In my opinion you will have to run metallic pads if:
-You are heavy
-You ride downhill
-The conditions are wet, muddy, etc.
and run resin pads or semi metallic pads if:
-you are light
-Conditions are dry
-You like a whole lot of initial grab
-Your riding is less hard on brakes i.e. dirt jump/street, XC, etc.
Even supposing I have now advisable pads so that you can use, it’s important to make your own choices on pads according to your riding, the above list will have to be considered to be a guideline, and not used as a strict rule.
