The BBB Cycling Shimano BBS-56 disc brake pads are very durable and have the same fit as the original. The disc brake pads are available in Sintered Compound and Organic Compound. For all kinds of conditions, these are the perfect brake pads. They've received breaking-in, increasing their lifespan!

Hard (Sintered):
The compound of sintered brake pads is made of resin mixed with metal particles. This makes the compound very tough and wear-resistant. These brake pads are also very resistant to high temperatures that can be caused during long descents especially. The downside is that these brake pads react slower than organic or semi-metallic brake pads and produce more noise during braking.
This makes these brake pads very suited for cycling in muddy terrain requiring a lot of braking. That’s common in muddy rides in hilly terrain. These brake pads are also very suited for downhill, enduro and muddy cyclocross rides.

Soft (Organic):
Organic brake pads consist of soft materials. That ensures these brake pads provide excellent dosage and stopping power. The soft compound allows this brake pad to react faster. Aside from that, the organic compound also reduces the noise these brake pads make when used.
The downside of organic brake pads is that they’re less resistant to high temperatures that can occur during long descents. Organic brake pads also wear faster when you often cycle in muddy terrain.
If you mostly use your bike during summer and in flat or hilly terrain, these organic brake pads are a great choice. If you are more of a winter cyclist however, or do you cycle in mountainous terrain, you’re better off with Semi-Metallic brake pads.

Manufacturers use different sizes & fits. Make sure if the shape of the brake pad in the image corresponds with your current brake pad. Not sure what shape you have, scroll down to the bottom of this page. There, you’ll find which brake pad is suited for which type of brake.

goede slijtvaste winterblokken

Gebruik deze bij slechte omstandigheden, regen/ modder, gaan lang mee, geen piepende remmen, blijven goede remvertraging geven bij natte omstandigheden, bij droog weer iets zachtere blokken gebruiken.


  • slijtvast
  • werken goed bij natte omstandigheden


  • remmen fors bij droge omstandigheden

Ondanks hoge verwachtingen voldoen deze schijfremblokken niet

Deze schijfremblokken zijn mij erg tegen gevallen, na 3200 km waren deze schijfremblokken helemaal op! Deze schijfremblokken zijn niet in het "veld" gebruikt alleen maar op verharde wegen en ik gebruik mijn remmen als het echt nodig is. De remkwaliteit is erg goed. Ik heb maar weer de Shimano G02A gemonteerd, goedkoper en gaan langer mee.


  • remmen goed


  • zeer snel versleten

Prijs- kwaliteit ligt uit verhouding.

Heb deze remblokken aangeschaft voor een langere levensduur, echter slijten de remblokken net zo snel als goedkopere sets (€6,- p/set)
