Harley Brake Pads
Select your ride
Which Harley compatible brake pads are best for you is largely dependent on your bike and riding style. So, we figure the best way to help is to provide you with some background info on the pads available and then let you make the decision.
There are three common types of brake pads: organic, semi-metallic, and sintered. There are other variations, but these three are the best options for the majority of riders. Each of these types of pads brings different pros and cons to the table.
Organic pads are made of varying ratios or rubber, glass, and Kevlar. They are the softest of the three options and they offer the smoothest braking feel. They are also the cheapest and the easiest on your rotors. The downside is that they don’t last as long. Still, these brake pads are a great option, especially for casual riders.
Semi metallic brake pads are similar to organic brake pads, but they have metal worked into them as well. This makes them firmer and more responsive than organic brake pads. Unfortunately, it also makes them more expensive and harder on the rotor.
Sintered brake pads are the third common option. They are the firmest, the most responsive, and are great for anyone racing. However, they are also the most expensive and the worst for your rotor.
We hope that this simple breakdown of brake pads has helped you figure out just what it is that you need. We look forward to fulfilling your order, thank you for shopping at Dennis Kirk.
