Red Label RACE thoughts & opinions

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

I finally got a couple good rides in on the Red pads. All I can say… DAMN. I’ve never felt pads with such strong and consistent bite, but still able to modulate the power. The lever pressure needed from my M8020 XT brakes is much less and feels better as I don’t have to pull too deep into the lever travel. I’m not sure if this was intentional for the design of the pads, but they are thicker than Shimano pads which takes up some of the excess free stroke that plagues XT brakes.

Zane
Zane

5 frikkin stars! Slapped these on this morning, bedded them in, and rode lifts at Deer Valley all day. Much better modulation than Shimano pads. Silent and powerful! Well done MTX! I’ve got some coming for the wife’s bike too!

Brian
Brian

I think these might be the most noticeable upgrade I’ve ever made to a bike — more so than carbon wheels, new rubber, upgraded damper, etc. I run Code RSC brakes which are already excellent brakes, but swapping in a set of Red Label Race pads totally changed the way the bike rides.

Andrew
Andrew

Dead quiet, great power, super consistent. I’ll never buy another pad! I tried out 1 set at first, and after 1 ride I ordered the second set. Do yourself a favor and try them out. You won’t regret it!

Andrew G.
Andrew G.

The pads feel awesome! Not quite as much power as the sintered sram pads, but much better modulation and ALOT quieter!

Were you able to send us a dealer code to our shop email yet? We’ll probably order some soon!

Thomas

I love these on my xc bike and looking forward to them on my wife and I’s trail bikes!

Dustin
Dustin

I ordered the red label pads and have been riding them for few weeks now, and let me say I love these pads! Quiet and powerful! I’m not sure about longevity yet but I have plenty of confidence they will last. Honestly if they don’t I’ll give the Golds a try. Quick shipping, quick responses, great customer service! I’m telling you that these guys are top notch!

Casey
Casey

This is the first bike I’ve owned with SRAM brakes. I wasn’t a fan. Noisy. Weak feel to them. Faded easily. I wanted to go back to Shimano. That is until I put on MTX Red Labels front and rear. WoW! What a difference these pads make. So quiet and the feel is amazing and the stopping power is on point!. I think I’ll keep my SRAM brakes and be perfectly happy, as long as I’m running MTX on them.

Chet
Chet

Instantly impressed. The noise level is almost non existent and I’ve been searching for quiet brakes forever. Will be changing my XC rig over as well.

Dan
Dan

I have used my MT brake pads for awhile, and they are so responsive, quiet and reliable. have no negative feedback regarding their quality or reliability. I felt like they were definitely an entire new brake set once I added them to my setup.

Aubrey
Aubrey

I’ve been riding with your pads for a little while now and I can honestly say the difference is profound. They make the Codes, a great brake already, even better. The red brake pads are silent and the power they offer are unlike any others I’ve tried before. I will definitely be turning more people onto your products. Keep up the great work.

Jeremy H.
Jeremy H.

The biggest difference I noticed is how quiet they are especially in the wet. One of the trail systems here is really steep to where your dragging brake a lot. I was following a buddy whose pads were howling and mine were silent. Most 3rd party pads that I’ve tried before weren’t as good as the brake manufacturer but yours are.

Jeremy
Jeremy

The pads have such a unique feel to them. They have a distinctly soft initial bite, with loads of power readily available for when you want it. Much less aggression than the stock metal pads but all the grab when needed.

Sam
Sam

I got a set of these pads a couple of months back and they are fantastic! Stopping power is incredible and 100% better than the SRAM pads I replaced. The modulation on these pads are great but the best part of it is that they are dead quiet.

Bryan
Bryan

Pads are in; just took it out for a test ride. Love the bite they have for not being a metallic pad.

Ruben
Ruben

Way better feel at the lever – like the pads are softer but have insane power. And no break-in time like the full-metallics I usually run.

Brian Baker
Brian Baker

I put a set of Red labels in my wife’s Transition Smuggler with SRAM Level brakes. They really improved the stopping power of a low level brake system. Great bite and less fading. Highly recommended! Red labels will be going in my TRP Gspec right away

Chris
Chris

WOW I’m in love first they are silent, they have more control so smooth and the hold on the steep rock faces so good.

Nathan
Nathan

Put in some serious miles on these already (100 miles in a local dirt century race) and the biggest thing I noticed was how quiet they are. I’m used to hearing some squealing now and then. Not a peep from these pads.

Mat Harris
Mat Harris

I originally tried a pair of the MTX pads to get rid of a squealing brake, which it cured….completely! Then, on top of that, I realized I had better modulation and power, so I’m back to order another set for my other bike and my wife’s, they’re that good!

Ryan K
Ryan K

I have about 250 miles and 45k feet of descending on them in absolutely terrible weather for almost every ride. I’m super stoked on the performance of them.

Tony Dalton
Tony Dalton

I had Shimano XT 4-pistons for this new bike. YOUR PADS ARE EXACTLY WHAT SHIMANO BRAKES NEED. Its light and zappy feeling with the ability to drag lightly to really stick to the berms and rock shoots. I can’t believe MTX pads made the whole thing come together!

Robert
Robert

Coming from full metallic pad that are said to provide the best power, after trying these ceramic pads I noticed a slight increase in stopping power but more importantly they provided far more modulation.

Justin
Justin

I’m a big guy 6’6″ and upwards of 260lbs with a pack on. The feel is great, the power is great, that power doesn’t fade on long descents, and they don’t squeal like a banshee. For reference I’m running them in XTR M9120’s on a Transition Patrol.

Wesley Rasmussen

@mtxbraking I wanted to let you know I have put some miles on your brake pads and they are amazing! I don’t think I have ever felt so much confidence in my brakes before!

Sam
Sam

First time swapping the pads out in my Shimano XTs and couldn’t believe the difference and improvement with the MTX pads! From the very first ride I noticed a significant improvement in my stopping power, but also in the brake lever feel and control in feeling super responsive.

Eric Foose

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.

Aaron Raines
Aaron Raines

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.

Austin Tucker
Austin Tucker

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.

Conor Barry
Conor Barry

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.

Red Label RACE vs. Gold Label HD

To cut to the point, Red Label RACE is for all-out performance, the Gold Label HD is geared for eMTBs and heavier weight.

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.

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.

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 Red Label RACE 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.

First ride on your pads and I couldn't be more happy with how they performed. Mud, snow and water and they were quiet, strong - basically flawless. Awesome product.

  2. Brian Baker

  3. Wes Macaulay

    (taken from Instagram) – “Just so y’all know, I’ve been testing MTX’s ceramic pads in my SRAM brakes. Way better bite than sintered and wearing just as long so far! #bombproof” “Also – way quieter.”

  4. Austin Tucker

    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.

  5. Nick Wilkes

    I’m on SRAM Codes for braking duty. I mounted a fresh set of these pads up in parallel with a new SRAM centerline rotors. Fast “bed in” time, about 10 hard squeezes at speed and they felt good.

    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.

    I descended 2,700 feet in one shot off of Engineer mountain in Colorado and did not notice any noise or power fade. Not the steepest trail, but plenty of heat input since it’s high speed.

    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. 

  6. Eric

    All pads are not created equal. First time swapping the pads out in my Shimano XTs and couldn’t believe the difference and improvement with the MTX pads! From the very first ride I noticed a significant improvement in my stopping power, but also in the brake lever feel and control in feeling super responsive.

    Most notably though, there was something MISSING when I finished my first ride: hand fatigue! Even through the rowdiest of rides, my brakes now do exactly what they’re supposed to and let me focus on the ride without the unnecessary distraction of sore hands.

    Great product, no-brained upgrade, and competitively priced 🙌.

  7. Chris Tidwell

    I put a set of Red labels in my wife’s Transition Smuggler with SRAM Level brakes. They really improved the stopping power of a low level brake system. Great bite and less fading. Highly recommended! Red labels will be going in my TRP Gspec right away.

  8. Aaron

    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!

  9. Nathan

    Ok, these guys mtx just showed up on my feed. Ceramic brakes sure why not that might be an up grade and I was tired of my noisy pads. So I order 4sets for my bikes one needs them and the other I just want it quieter. Well after 20+ miles and multiple days WOW I’m in love first they are silent, they have more control so smooth and the hold on the steep rock faces so good. I will be ordering again and I’m looking for the new rotor that have who knew brake pads would be a real upgrade…
    Thanks MTX Braking

  10. Mat Harris

    Put in some serious miles on these already (100 miles in a local dirt century race) and the biggest thing I noticed was how quiet they are. I’m used to hearing some squealing now and then. Not a peep from these pads. Excellent modulation with XTR brakes. I only changed my rear pads because the front still have some life, but I think I’m going to just change them out early because these were much better. My new go-to brake pads.

  11. Ryan

    I originally tried a pair of the MTX pads to get rid of a squealing brake, which it cured….completely! Then, on top of that, I realized I had better modulation and power, so I’m back to order another set for my other bike and my wife’s, they’re that good!

  12. Mike Cartier

    Aside from getting sick of my stock Shimano XT pads squealing and howling at every pulse of my finger, I was stoked to try a set of these MTX pads out, as a curious bike nerd at heart. As far as I know, no one has really taken a microscope to brake pad compounds past the existing organic, semi-metallic and metallic offerings, so it’s refreshing to see something new burst into the market with impressive claims. 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).

  13. Robert Majors

    (Editor’s note: this is taken from an Instagram DM conversation)
    So as far as performance, let me say that I have tried SRAM, TRP and Shimano 4 piston brakes with every pad available I think. I always use g***** rotors love them and g***** pro pads are my favorite but….they’re grabby and they lack modulation; Shimano is kinda on-off feel anyway.

    So I had switched to TRP Slate 4 pistons with a longer lever which gave a better feel or leverage to modulate but didn’t like the actual lever. Kind of bulky.

    So…this is a long story but I am going to get to my point where I tell you how amazing your pads are! (spoiler alert).

    I had Shimano XT 4-pistons for this new bike. YOUR PADS ARE EXACTLY WHAT SHIMANO BRAKES NEED.

    Its light and zappy feeling with the ability to drag lightly to really stick to the berms and rock shoots. I can’t believe MTX pads made the whole thing come together!

    I am an old motocross guy so I love tuning and just always felt like MTB brakes just really missed the mark.

    I am hooked and headed to your website to order two more sets for our other bikes thank you and great product!

    @mtxbraking I wanted to let you know I have put some miles on your brake pads and they are amazing! I don’t think I have ever felt so much confidence in my brakes before!

  15. Conor Barry

    Stoked.
    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.

  16. Justin

    Coming from full metallic pad that are said to provide the best power, after trying these ceramic pads I noticed a slight increase in stopping power but more importantly they provided far more modulation. So happy with the switch! However, there is a disclaimer. If you’re coming from full metallic/sintered pads you will want to sand down your rotors to get off any embedded metal from the old pads, if not you may get some squeaking.

  17. Wes R

    These are the brake pads I’m been waiting for my whole mountain biking life! But seriously, I’m a big guy 6’6″ and upwards of 260lbs with a pack on. I’ve struggled for years with brakes and had accepted it as my fate to deal with brake fade on downhills and constantly removing, sanding, then re-installing pads to keep them working okay. I just did the math and I’ve logged 142.25 miles and 20,576 feet of descent on my Red Label pads and I haven’t had to touch them since the initial install; they just work and keep working. The feel is great, the power is great, that power doesn’t fade on long descents, and they don’t squeal like a banshee. For reference I’m running them in XTR M9120’s on a Transition Patrol.

  18. Tony Dalton

    Race season is staring so i just ordered another set to have for spares. I have about 250 miles and 45k feet of descending on them in absolutely terrible weather for almost every ride. I’m super stoked on the performance of them. I thought about buying the Golds for the rear, but really enjoy the feel of the reds. Thanks for making a great product! Stoked to race on them.

  19. Huan

    First ride on your pads and couldn’t be more happy with how they performed.

  28. Casey

    I’m 6’4” and around 210 riding weight. I’ve been riding for over 20yrs. I was looking for some new pads after great difficulties with some major brand name pads. MTX came up on my Instagram feed and at first I was skeptical. After a little research I realized this was a legit company. I ordered the red label pads and have been riding them for few weeks now, and let me say I love these pads! Quiet and powerful! I’m not sure about longevity yet but I have plenty of confidence they will last. Honestly if they don’t I’ll give the Golds a try. Quick shipping, quick responses, great customer service! I’m telling you that these guys are top notch! Don’t hesitate, just buy these pads and be done with searching! Help keep these guys in business because I don’t want to buy any other pads now! Great Job MTX

  29. Dustin

    I love these on my xc bike and looking forward to them on my wife and I’d trail bikes!

  30. Thomas

    Were you able to send us a dealer code to our shop email yet? We’ll probably order some soon!

  31. Andrew G.

    I seriously appreciate you reaching out and retroactively applying that discount code to my order. I’m a customer for life now. I’m sold on these pads. I just ordered my second set and I’ll make sure to preach you guys’ name to everyone on the trail! …onto my review – Dead quiet, great power, super consistent. I’ll never buy another pad! I tried out 1 set at first, and after 1 ride I ordered the second set. Do yourself a favor and try them out. You won’t regret it!

  32. Andrew

    *So in full disclosure, I am not a social media influencer, so my opinion can’t be treated as fact. I’m just a guy who needed new brake pads and bought these because I had heard good things, and wanted to verify the claims that these were better than the hype.

    I think these might be the most noticeable upgrade I’ve ever made to a bike — more so than carbon wheels, new rubber, upgraded damper, etc. I run Code RSC brakes which are already excellent brakes, but swapping in a set of Red Label Race pads totally changed the way the bike rides. I’m able to brake less and brake later, kill speed faster, and the bite is amazingly consistent. They’ve been totally silent (you don’t know how loud your brakes were until you ride on totally silent brakes) even over long descents in moon dust. I don’t remember any bedding period. They just worked right out of the box. I’m only a few thousand feet of descending into the pads so far, so if they last as long as a stock pad, they will have exceeded my expectations in every way.

  33. Brian

    5 frikkin stars! Slapped these on this morning, bedded them in, and rode lifts at Deer Valley all day. Much better modulation than Shimano pads. Silent and powerful! Well done MTX! I’ve got some coming for the wife’s bike too!

  34. Preston

    It’s a bit shocking the difference these made from the moment I installed them. Brakes are usually something I feel people take for granted but since running these in my Shimano XT’s, it has transformed how I ride. I feel much more confident keeping off the brakes longer while coming into corners, and if or when I need to stop they do so immediately. I also appreciate how silent they are, since there are few things more annoying than loud brakes.

  35. Zane

    I finally got a couple good rides in on the Red pads. All I can say… DAMN. I’ve never felt pads with such strong and consistent bite, but still able to modulate the power. The lever pressure needed from my M8020 XT brakes is much less and feels better as I don’t have to pull too deep into the lever travel. I’m not sure if this was intentional for the design of the pads, but they are thicker than Shimano pads which takes up some of the excess free stroke that plagues XT brakes.

    These are absolutely the best brake pads I have ever ridden. Thanks!!!

  36. Cody F

    I was having problems with the 2-piston Shimano XTs on my XC bike fading on long descents. I would get half way down and already be pulling the lever to the bar. I was thinking I needed to update to larger rotors but I wanted to keep my bike light. I opted to try these brake pads and first ride I was blown away by the stopping power. Recently I did a 4,000 ft descent in 90 degree heat that I would have had to baby my old brake pads on. With these red labels the brakes felt the same at the bottom as they did at the top. It’s amazing how much faster you can be on the downhills when you have complete confidence in your brakes! I will be updating all my bikes to these brake pads now.

  37. Derick Hutchinson

    When I first bought my bike I thought the brakes were horrible. I have SRAM Level brakes and they always felt squishy and sloppy. I was not ever able to lock up my rear tire and had to nearly bring the lever to the grip to stop. On the verge of purchasing a whole new brake setup, I noticed an instagram add from MTX and decided to try the $30 solution before dropping $300-400 on a new setup. I felt the difference immediately! I was able to lock up my rear end, the noisy squeek went way and the pressure needed to slow down was much less! I highly recommend MTX Red label if you have SRAM Level brakes. Million dollar value!

  38. Jarvis

    Not much to add that isn’t said in other reviews. Improved modulation, increase in overall power, and way less noise. Who wouldn’t love all of that? Ran a set on some SRAM Guides and just bought another set for some Codes. Excited to keep using them!

  39. Bart C

    I’m typically not one to leave reviews on things, but these are phenomenal. Dead silent (even when wet), never fade and just simply work. Great job MTX team and great website.
