These Magura MT series replacement pads are equipped with their Performance pad material, a soft organic compound for an excellent balance of features. These pads offer excellent stopping power and modulation with low noise, reliable heat management and respectable wear life. The backing plates of these pads are steel for secure retention to Magura's magnetic pistons. These pads are compatible with Magura's line of MT series brake calipers, including MT2, MT4, MT6, and MT8 models, and include a new Magura threaded retaining pin.
When installing new pads and/or rotors, a break-in period must be observed before full braking power can be achieved. Performing an initial bed-in process for the pads is highly recommended before trail riding. The following bed-in process will transfer a small amount of pad material to the rotors, reducing noise and maximizing brake power:
1. Ensure that the surfaces of the pads and rotors are clean and free of debris. When reusing old rotors, lightly sanding the contact area of the rotor with 120 grit sandpaper is recommended to clean the surface and expose fresh material.
2. Once the pads and rotors are clean and secure, ride the bike on flat pavement, accelerating to approximately 15 mph.
3. Applying one brake at a time, rapidly decelerate the bike to a near full stop without locking up the brake.
4. Repeat this process 20 times per brake.
