    I've tried all the Vesrah's but not the others. Got the best life out of the XX compound. I prefer the SS compound over the XX but they don't last as long. The ZZ's are my favorite but life expectancy is even shorter than the SS.

    I use Brembo RC, great feel and good price but don't last long. Next set will be Z04 again, expensive but best I've had!
    Compared to DP Sinters and SBS DC

    Can you compare a durability of SBS DC and Z04? I'm using SBS DC, super price but lifetime is very short. I'm thinking about Z04 but price is astronomical and I need to know if the price is justified.

    I have just tested the new SBS Dual Sinter 2 type and they are great. I have never been a fan of the dual sinter with their extreme initial brake force, but the new SBS Dual sinter 2 has a friction curve in a same way as the dual carbon do but just with more force and with much better wear resistant.

    The next thing is that you can combine the dual sinter 1 and 2 to suit you demand to brakes. Really a nice thing that SBS has created

    I can only compare Z04 with Brembo RC, the Z04 last double the distance. My Dp sinter did last the same as the Z04 but the brakeperformance was poor compared to the Brembo pads. I needed to adjust brakemarkers when I switched to Brembo, I was almost standing still before the corner.
