Braking Semi-Metallic SM1 Brake Pads offer superior performance in wet or dry conditions. They are smooth, consistent and responsive from the lowest to highest possible temperatures. Their dependable and rugged performance will satisfy the most demanding sport riders, commuters, and touring enthusiasts. SM1 pads are fade, noise and dust-free. Semi-metallic brake pads are gentle on all rotors, but have been designed for stainless steel rotors.

All BrakingĀ® brake pads are asbestos and nickel free, using an organic base material for outstanding friction along with a soft, non-aggressive metal that allows the pad to glide on the disc, providing better control. They are compatible with cast iron, stainless steel and CarbironĀ® materials and, when used with BrakingĀ® rotors, provide the greatest control and braking power available.
Please Note: Product is sold in pairs. One pair required per rotor.

      Put on 86' Goldwing 1200A. They work great so far. Much better than the ones we just took off. These STOP the bike :)
      Not sure on mileage yet, we have maybe 3000 miles on them so far.

          I installed these on my vintage GS850G, this is the second set. Professional mechanic installed the first set incorrectly, that resulted in excessive wear and noise. This set works perfectly. Now she stops like a new bike!
