If the two pads in a package of SwissStop disc brake pads are not exactly the same shape (pads are asymmetrical) then there is a left and right side. Check for indications printed on the pads or refer to the technical documentation below.
SwissStop has stopped producing Disc S models and recommends Disc E as a replacement. Disc E provides:
- Low noise – Disc E is quiet in dry conditions, similar noise to Disc S in wet conditions
- Smooth modulation – Disc E provides better control of the braking power
- Better durability – Disc E lasts about twice as long as Disc S while also less abrasive on the rotor
