General informations:

Resin brake pads are quieter than metal pads but have a lower performance and a bigger wear. Metal brake pads have a longer durability, are more resistant to fading and offer consistent brake performance even if it is wet. Compared to resin pads metal pads can produce noises when braking.

Ice Technologies:

The fading which can occur to disc brake rotor and pad when braking on a long downhill ride for instance, has a negative impact on the braking performance. Shimano has adopted Ice-Tech disc brake rotor and brake pad to realize the cooling technology for consistent performance. The disc brake rotor blade which has a 3 layer-sandwich structure of stainless steel, aluminum and stainless steel, provides better radiation performance achieving a lower surface temperature. Aluminium cooling fins have been adopted the brake pad improving the radiation performance even further. In combination the disc brake rotor blade and the radiator fin provide long pad life, less noise, less fade and lightweight.

Ja, Bremsbeläge verschleißen mehr oder weniger stark, je nach Wetterlage (nass/trocken), Einsatzbereich (bergig/flach) und individuellem Bremsverhalten. Anders als mein Vorredner kann ich jedoch keinen erhöhten Verschließ im Vergleich zum Vorgängermodell feststellen, im Gegenteil (40% weniger Verschleiß, wie von Shimano angegeben, halte ich aber dennoch für sehr optimistisch). In Kombination mit der SRAM Centerline XR Bremsscheibe (separate Bewertung) bieten die Beläge ein gutes, berechenbares Bremsverhalten unter allen (Wetter-)Bedingungen. Dies und die deutlich geringere Geräuschentwicklung lassen mich metallische Beläge nicht vermissen.
Although these replacement (L03A) pads should last longer than original (40% according to Shimano), they wear out just as fast.

Pads function very well, but wear out extremely quickly. Also too expansive for that.
