Now any biker can experience what we believe are the best brake pads on the market. Constant Improvement and product enhancement has allowed Galfer to provide braking systems for the most demanding, market leading, car, motorcycle and bicycle industries since 1952.
Their R&D team have worked tirelessly on new materials in order to improve power and reduce wear and noise. Checked successfully by Galfer’s racing teams (and recently by the 2pure team in adverse Scottish riding conditions), their brake pads are the pads of choice for various major bicycle brands OEM. This is because they are safe, noiseless and durable. They also happen to be the only European (Barcelona) based OEM brake pad manufacturer.
Galfer have developed three types of brake pad compounds that adapt to different riding styles (trekking, commuting, XC, marathon, enduro or downhill). There isn’t really a ‘budget’ pad in the range, they all offer top levels of performance.
Brake pads are an often overlooked but crucial part to getting the best performance out of your mountain bike. Having the confidence to know that you can stop quickly, and safely, can make a huge difference in the enjoyment you get out of a ride. Well maintained, modern brakes combined with quality brake pads result in stopping power we can only have dreamed of a decade ago.
