Zeit Bicycle Disc brakes are most commonly used on mountain bikes and road bikes; however their brake pads are also sometimes fitted to urban speeder or touring bikes. Zeit Bicycle Disc brake pads are used because of their incredible stopping power and versatility in changing the pad. One is confused these days as to which brake pad to use or even were to find the correct bike brake pad. Their descriptions come in all terms of the English language and shapes and sizes, bike brake pads, bicycle brake shoes, bike brake shoes, brake shoes for bicycles, replacement bike pads, replacement pads, disc brakes, calliper brake pads, brake pad inserts, semi-metallic bike pads, sintered bike brake pads. Brake pads are a crucial component in your bicycle braking system. Pads are what push against the rotor or bike rim to slow down your bicycle, it is important to choose the best pad for your application. There are a variety of pad materials to choose from when it comes time to replace your pads. In the Zeit range can choose from semi-metallic asbestos free, sintered metallic for excellent braking performance in high speed and high temperature riding. Over time, all brake pads wear out due to the fact that these components are friction parts. This means that they work by creating friction (generating heat) which not only slows down the bicycle, but wears down the surface of the brake pad. When it's time to replace your pads, it's crucial to know how to choose brake pad material.
