Brake Pad Glazing / How To Break in Brake Pads

Last updated 2011-12-07 - Send Feedback

Glazing

Brake pads can glaze by excessive braking; a shiny surface develops which inhibits brake effectiveness and modulation. Also, uneven braking or vibration can result.

Badly glazed pads might have to be replaced, but mild glazing is easily dealt with: sand the brake pades with emery paper or fine-grit sandpaper. This roughens the surface and should restore normal braking action.

Breaking in brake pads

With new brake pads, especially brake pads on mountain bikes with hydraulic brakes, a proper break-in can help set the pads up for optimum performance. Here’s how.

  1. Get going about 20 mph, then brake moderatly hard to about 5 mph.
  2. After a short pause, repeat.

Do this about 10 times. Your brake pads should now be working great.
