Who is the Gold Label HD compound for?

Right compound for the conditions

The heavier weight of a eMTB or e-bike in general, requires brake pad material that has a higher tolerance to heat and wear.

Choose Gold Label HD to eliminate brake-fade, while maintaining outstanding modulation in adverse terrain.


Ceramic Mountain Bike Brake Pads - Less Noise, More Power

When owner Kevin Gorzny of MTX Braking reached out to us, we didn't know what to make of his claims of increased performance and quiet power application. So he sent us a few sets of his aftermarket mountain bike brake pads to try out, both the Red Label Race and the Gold Label HD. If you come from a motorsports background where aftermarket pads are commonplace, it might have been obvious to you, but MTX's CeraEVO braking compound, created using all sorts of fancy ingredients like Kevlar, ceramic (yea, like you'd find at your local Pottery Barn ??), and copper, does make a noticeable difference in noise output, and increases your power output as well.
