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.

The Clydesdales

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.

Big Rider approved

I am bigger then the average mtb Rider. I tip the scales at 227 lbs. I saw that these were designed for the bigger Rider. They work well. I have no scientific way to prove anything but they feel like they increased my stopping power by at least 50% over oem Shimano pads. Will definitely buy again.
