brake pads options ?

I'll need to replace my brakes pads early in the season if not done before getting my Vee out.

What are your suggestion of pads ? I've seen that EBC make organic and also sintered pads. Galfer seem to make pads too. I can go OEM but aftermarket is usually better.

I've just put Galfer ones on mine. They weren't expensive and the feel is way better but I did put Galfer ss lines on at the same time so how much is pads and how much is the lines I don't know.

If you ride off road, go the EBC organics.

The EBC HH pads will give you stronger brakes, but they behave worse when when wet or covered in dirt.
