    Metalic Pads BR-R8070/9170/GRX

    Is there a metallic pad made for the Shimano BR-R8070 or similar calipers? I can't find anything googling - just resin pads. The only L series pad I can find in metalic is L04C but it doesn't show compatible with these calipers on any website I have seen, just RS805 and RS505 calipers.

    What is the advantage of metallic pads?
    I just converted most of my fleet of bikes to disks and am using resin pads.

    They last longer, fade less and stop faster with the same pressure on the brake lever. The con some complain about is more noise - although I have not noticed that to be true.

    They have proven to be noisier in some cases and they wear rotors out faster.
