I'm currently running Nukeproof sintered pads in my Saints but I find myself wanting more power/bite/friction (not really sure how best to describe it), and I find that even being sintered they give the feeling of being a little glazed sometimes after long descents, and just generally seem to be a bit inconsistent. I run a 200mm Magura disc up front and a 180mm Shimano both with aluminium spiders. What pads have you guys had good experiences with?

No exactly apples to apples but I had been on the nukeproof sintered pads with my code rsc's and centerline rotors and the switch to uber race matrix pads helped to sharpen things up a bit and add more grip especially at higher speeds. Not as much as the switch from centerline to hs2 rotors but definitly a cost effective increase in power.

I use the shimano D02S metal pads. No rattling pads and they work well. If anything in alpine riding I’d have bigger discs for longer descents. 200 front and rear is minimum for me and currently have a 220 up front

I've been running MTX gold label pads on my Saints and am highly impressed by them. The initial bite is just a tiny hair less than metallic, and i mean TINY, but the feel is extremely consistent. Where shimano pads start to feel glazed or softer after the initial bite, MTX just stays rocks solid after days and park descending. They also give significant modulation increase to the Saints which allows you to really dial in 'feather" braking in corners, or super slippery mud/dry/loose conditions. The brake feedback is telepathic too. Will never go back! Cost same as metal pads, wear life is similar, and no brake dust buildup, no brainer for me.
