First ride on your pads and couldn’t be more happy with how they performed.
Mud, snow and water and these pads were quiet, strong…basically flawless.
I wanted to reach out and let you guys know how awesome your Red Label pads are.. I even went as far as replacing my brand new XTR finned pads to give these a shot and WOW.
I immediately had the modulation of SRAM and the stopping power and consistency of Shimano.
I am definitely a brake snob and have run every type of brakes and pads there are and was impressed with how they felt. Nice work Kevin and team!
I now have 60 miles and 10k of descending on them. The pads have been dead quiet so far. They seem more powerful than metallics I was on, but the power seems controlled. Before if I would brake late and get on the lever hard I’d over squeeze sometime and cut the tires loose. Just enough modulation/power onset with these pads to prevent that.
Excited to get them on sustained steeps and see how they perform. I’d buy another pair as of my initial impressions. I’ll rate it at 4-stars because I can’t speak on durability yet.
While I’ve gotten used to the ON/OFF feel my XT’s produce, I never truly liked the lack of modulation I experienced compared to other brakes. After a few weeks of saddle time, these MTX pads allow some great modulation at first bite while offering a detailed feel and stupid power to boot.
When off the trails, you can catch me riding trials on my hardtail and playing on my back wheel at any opportunity. These pads have inspired confidence and received 100% of my trust already. Consider trying these pads out if you want to tune and enhance your braking performance. (Editor’s note: Mike was a contest giveaway winner).
Minimal break in time. I threw them on and like most pads I was expecting them to have zero power for the first half of the ride. Not the case. Powerful right from the get go.
Dead quiet. I rode them the other day in mixed wet/dusty conditions (perfect storms for howling brakes) and they never made any sound. It’s nice that my friends can’t hear when I’m braking.
I have about 50 miles on them and am stoked to see how well they hold up. If they last as long as stock pads they will easily take the cake.
I’ll admit it, I was skeptical. Are these going to just be the same brake pads I’ve been running, but spray painted red?
Well, they weren’t. These pads bite way harder than my stock guide pads, while still being able to modulate/feather when needed. My confidence on corners and steeps went up pretty drastically because of the confidence I had in the pads stopping power. Stoked to continue using these. I’m a convert.
MTX Braking getting it done. 100x more bite and power than the stock Guide pads. Braking later in corners and managing speed more smoothly at high speed.

The Brand Mission
Why We Created MTX Braking
The founders of MTX Braking and MTX Components have extensive backgrounds in powersports. In this category there are several strong aftermarket brands of braking products; in turn, the average consumer has many options and rarely purchases OEM braking components. For whatever reason, this isn’t the case in cycling, until now.
There is a huge opportunity for us to educate the average rider regarding which brake pad compound will best-suit their needs, along with the size of rotor necessary for the type of riding done and weight of the individual.
What We are Building
We are creating a line of braking components for mountain bikes and road bikes focused on an exciting brand built around competitive pricing and quality.
We are testing every brake pad down to the individual compound, every rotor, every part. All of our products will pass our high standards before we release them to you. I want to build a strong brand around our product line and give people cost-effective, high-quality options beyond OEM.
