All new disc brake pads and rotors should be put through a wear-in process called “bed-in”.
The bed-in procedure should be performed prior to your first ride and is essential for further performance.
Bedding in your pads and rotors ensures the most consistent and powerful braking along with the quietest braking in most riding conditions.
The bed-in process heats up the brake pads and rotors, which deposits an even layer of brake pad material (transfer layer) to the braking surface of the rotor. This transfer layer optimizes braking performance.
