I am not a racer. I ride nearly everyday, and my motorbike is my principal transportation. I recently replaced my worn out front pads with Volars, in spite of my trepidation about the price. Too low to be good. But they are good. Maybe even better than the expensive pads I replaced them with. Sometimes are there good deals to be had. And the service was great. They helped me with a mistaken order and shipped promptly, both times.
