Gold Label HD thoughts & opinions

The following are mostly snippets of longer reviews accessible from the Reviews link above.

I have to say how amazing these gold pads are in my ebike. Absolute confidence in them and no fade at all. Just constant and consistent stopping power. That’s impressive for an ebike bombing down the wasatch crest where I’ve overheated my xc bike pads before. Whatever your doing to make these it’s working!

Installed a set on my Trek Powerfly ebike, after a buddy recommended them. Excellent stopping power, super quiet. I’m a fan!

The pads are silent, do not lose clamping power from heat, and the modulation is perfect. You can just keep slowly squeezing the front brake lever ’til the rear tire starts to come off the ground. I’m not on an e-bike, but run the Gold pads as I weight 220+15lb pack, then the bike. Thanks for the great product and choices.

Hey guys, I received the gold shiny brake pads and installed in my nuke proof mega, I’m deeply pleased with the performance, thx.

Fall is here along with the heavy rains so I’ll get to test them in wet conditions, but so far the pads are lasting longer than my OEM SRAM sintered (about 20% longer by my estimation), and they’re quieter and bite better as well. I’m absolutely sold on these pads.

Zero fade and they have greatly improved the overall braking. I can’t wait to get a set on my full suspension bike to see what they do for the braking. Great product and amazing customer service.

Gold Label HD vs. Red Label RACE

Gold Label HD is geared for eMTBs and heavier weight with a focus on heat-resistance and durability. Red Label RACE is for all-out performance with a shorter lifespan.

Gold Label HD

Choose Gold Label HD when riding an eMTB / e-bike and/or if you are in the Clydesdale rider category. This product is for those who prioritize durability & fade-resistance in their brake pads.

Red Label RACE

Choose Red Label RACE when the priority is all-out performance and absolute silence. For those who value the ability to dial in the feel of the brake into fast corners and want the ultimate balance of power and feel.

Brake longer with zero fade with Gold Label HD brake pads

Ceramic Technology

Ceramic compounds in brake pads have long-since been the premium option in automotive racing; we wanted to tap into that knowledge & technology and bring those friction benefits to the mtb space.

Our MTX CeraEVO (pronounced "sarah-e-voe") encompasses the knowledge from the automotive field, but maintains other vital properties needed for your mountain bike (such as a higher awareness of heat-resistance given the often-very-thin material on all mtb brake pads).

Stronger than Steel

While the use of Kevlar® by DuPont™ certainly isn't proprietary, it is still noteworthy and a significant part of the durability of the MTX Gold Label HD brake pad.

Kevlar® is a synthetic aramid that has outstanding heat-resistance properties relevant to braking products; for example, Kevlar will resist any degree of breaking down up to 850°F.

They've lasted longer than my SRAM sintered, have better bite, and make less noise.

  1. Wes M

    My son’s Stumpy has SRAM Code 200/200 brakes; I have SRAM Guide R 200/180.  I stop better than he does, so he’s convinced.  Fall is here along with the heavy rains so I’ll get to test them in wet conditions, but so far the pads are lasting longer than my OEM SRAM sintered (about 20% longer by my estimation), and they’re quieter and bite better as well.  I’m absolutely sold on these pads.

  2. Michael

    I put these on my XC hard tail race bike with SLX 7000 brakes, and they now feel very similar to my XT 8000 equipped full suspension bike. Zero fade and they have greatly improved the overall braking. I can’t wait to get a set on my full suspension bike to see what they do for the braking. Great product and amazing customer service.
