Ashima Air Thermal Disc Brake Pads

$17.00 - $19.00

With their Air Thermal series, Ashima offers lightweight and technically-advanced replacement disc brake pads for many current brake systems. The Air Thermal pads feature lightweight aluminum fins, carefully machined and finished in a handsome blue, to help dissipate heat generated during braking. To maximize their heat dissipation qualities, these fins are machined to various heights to optimize surface area for cooling and include channels to promote air flow between the fins and backing plate. The aluminum backing plate also features machined channels that work in conjunction with those found on the fins to further aid in keeping temperatures down. These machined channels serve double-duty as the removed material in both the backing plates and fins helps reduce the overall weight; at 22 grams for the pads and spring, these come in about 10 grams lighter per wheel than comparable Shimano XTR finned pads. In addition, the backing plates feature a slightly textured finish which Ashima call their “Wave Design”, another feature designed to maximize air contact for cooling. Available in both organic and semi-metallic versions, this high-value aftermarket solution features excellent braking performance and temperature control. These are compatible with many modern Shimano (as well as a few other manufacturers) braking systems, see below for compatibility.
