Shimano used with these pads first aluminum cooling fins on the brake linings. These result from the heat generated during braking and devalue the tendency to overheat the brake system much! The limit range can be significantly postponed.
Metal pads offer compared to plastic coverings higher braking effect, less wear and better temperature stability. However, they tend to increased noise and increased wear on the brake disc.
