Experience next-level braking performance and maximize the braking power of your Shimano XTR / XT / SLX and DEORE mountain bike 2-Piston calipers with Kogel replacement disc brake pads. (Also compatible with some older Shimano road groups. Please see compatibility list below.)

Available in two sintered compounds that offer the best braking potential for your riding style. Both pad compounds help you do one thing; go faster with less energy.

Choose Kratos compound for best durability in wet environments and intense braking. These pads reach maximum potential with some heat buildup from cornering and descending.

Choose Bia compound for rides where braking isn't a constant. Imagine going uphill for 30 minutes, then railing the hairpins on the way down. This softer compound has great bite, hot or cold, and is best kept in dry conditions.

All Kogel disc brake pads feature:

  • Ceramic Barrier coating on the backside of pads to keep heat in the compound and out of the system, improving sustained performance and negating any need for fins
  • Two customized sintered compounds give you better sustained and on-demand braking performance in any conditions so you can go faster!
  • 100% recyclable materials putting less strain on our environment so you're doing more to make riding fun for generations to come (vs organic pads that go to the landfill)
  • Nickel and lead-free (both are toxic) construction making them less toxic and better for our environment so you and creatures along the trails will live longer

    Customer reviews
    "These are my go-to brake pads. They work really well and are very durable, lasting longer and working better than other pads I’ve tried."
    — Mike m.
    "Amazing upgrade from the original pads, I live in a humid state and ride trails with early morning dew, these pads squeak way less than the originals, highly recommended if your running Hope Tech brakes!"
    — Bruno a.
    "These are by far the best brake pads I've used, and well worth the price. I have SRAM AXS HRD brakes and while the SRAM pads are good, but the Kogels are so much better, and last much longer. Since I ride in predominantly dry conditions I use the BIAs. Also, I'm not a racer, or wannabe racer, just a regular guy on a bike, having fun."
    — Tim W
    "I ordered Kogel disc brake pads for my twp SRAM AXS bikes and my wife's SHIMANO GRX Allied All-Road. I expected them to be good, like every other Kogel product I have and they way exceeded this mark. More power and better modulation. I'll take it!"

    Frequently asked questions

    What materials are Kogel disc brake pads made from?

    Kogel disc brake pads feature advanced sintered compounds with a unique Ceramic Barrier technology for optimal performance.

    What are the benefits of the Ceramic Barrier in Kogel's brake pads?

    This technology helps manage heat during intense braking, ensuring better control and longer pad life.

    How do I choose between the Kratos and Bia compounds?

    Kratos is tailored for durability in wet conditions, while Bia is designed for scenarios with less frequent but critical braking needs.

    Will I notice a difference in performance?

    Yes and No. Kolossos has been designed to shift just as accurate as your stock derailleur cage. You will notice reduced drive train friction. Upgrading to an oversized derailleur cage is one step in the eternal search to go faster with less effort.

    Are Kogel disc brake pads compatible with all disc brake systems?

    We offer options for major brands like Shimano, SRAM, and Hope, but it's important to check specific compatibility.
