Are galvanized brake pads better than ceramic?

Metallic. Metallic brake pads perform well and cost less than ceramic brake pads, but they bite harder and are definitely louder during driving.

Why are galfer rotors better?

The key to providing more braking power stems from improving heat dissipation. Galfer wave rotors have extra surface area allowing more heat transfer to the surroundings. This allows the rotors to cool faster and make braking more effective.

Are galfer wavy discs any good?

Overall the Galfer floating disc rotors are great performers and also look pretty smart with the coloured detailing on them. For Alpine riding or lots of uplift laps they offer some small braking performance advantages over standard discs.

What is better ceramic or metallic brakes?

Ceramic brake pads typically last longer than semi-metallic brake pads, and through their lifespan, provide better noise control and less wear-and-tear to rotors, without sacrificing braking performance.

What is the difference between sintered and organic brake pads?

In general, organic brake pads are made from softer materials than sintered brake pads meaning they are usually quieter. In mountain bike applications, organic pads will give you more initial bite when you first grab the brake lever.
