Brake pads are together and not broken. Only thing I didn't like us I ordered 2 sets of front and 3 sets of back, because back normally wear quicker. All 5 sets came marked the same. No way to tell the difference between them.
Great stopping power and quite! Definitely recommend
No problems at all. I previously had Kevlar pads and those from day one smelled burned and chattered. I went through those pads in a month and a half, all the way down to metal and I don't even ride hard, just a heavy bike and heavy rider, lol. So far these are more responsive, don't smell burned and appear to have more pad material on them. I'll rate them after some more use.
Good value pads for the money. I've been through a couple sets and have ordered for two other friends. Satisfied so far! :-)
