WIDGET COMPONENTS SEMI-METAL DISC BRAKE PAD
Formula The One / R1
Our semi-metallic pads are a great compromise between sintered and organic pads. This makes them the perfect fit and forget pad for all types of riding.
They last longer than organic pads which can deteriorate very quickly in wet or abrasive conditions. They also don't suffer from brake drag which can be caused by the higher heat build up in fully sintered pads.
We use a Mild Steel backplate instead of Aluminium to reduce the speed at which heat build up in the pads is transferred to the brake fluid. This reduces the incidence of brake drag on linger descents
