MTX Braking was created by avid mountain bikers for avid mountain bikers. Recognizing the need for super-high-quality, after-market braking components, MTX set out to build a stronger connection between you and your bike through better brake pads.
While they're crafted to be visually stunning, the color variation plays a more significant role than simply style. Unlike the one-type-fits-all OEM brake pads, MTX gives you the choice of the right type of brake pads specific to your riding style. Featuring specific compounds for specific needs and tested for countless miles to ensure they deliver exactly the braking power you need.
Who is the Gold Label HD compound for?
The heavier weight of an eMTB or e-bike, in general, requires brake pad material that has a higher tolerance to heat and wear.
For riders who are 200+ pounds when geared up, this really is the performance brake pad compound you’ve been looking for.
Steep terrain / long descents
Choose Gold Label HD to eliminate brake-fade, while maintaining outstanding modulation in adverse terrain.
Modulation coupled with longevity
The Gold Label HD ceramic brake pad was designed with e-mountain bikes & heavier riders in mind. Made with proprietary blends of Kevlar®, MTX CeraEVO® ceramic materials, and other Japan-sourced additives and modifiers, they bring the performance benefit of ceramic to the cycling industry.
Durability - Gold Label HD ceramic is built for heavy bikes, heavy riders, and extreme terrain.
Fade-Resistance - A compound created to offer incredible protection over heat-induced brake fade
Control - Maintain feeling and control at the lever all while maximizing power and heat-management
Choose Gold Label HD when riding an eMTB / e-bike and/or if you are in the Clydesdale rider category. This product is for those who prioritize durability & fade-resistance in their brake pads.

I just got these with a set of HS2 rotors to improve my braking power for my Code RSC brakes. It did the trick. I can't say which improved my brakes more since I installed both at the same time. Much more quiet too when compared to the Centerline rotors and sintered pads that came with my bike. I don't have to pull as hard on the levers anymore and my forearms don't get fatigued from pulling the brakes. Well worth it!
