SRAM Code RSC Brakes - Review
@poah: I don't know what your arguing. It's a proven, tested, fact that organic pads wear out sooner and fade earlier...Thats not my opinion it's a industry fact. This is why sites like PB recommend metallic pads for wet areas or aggressive riding. If you are happy with your organics that's fine. It is still objectively stupid to sell DH brakes with organic pads, especially somewhere like the PNW where terrain is steep and it rains all the time. Because you can't seem to grasp the concept, here is an article outlining when organic pads should be used https://www.pinkbike.com/news/brake-pad-information-2009.html (Hint, its not for DH)

@poah: Performance car being handicapped by shit tires. Performance brakes being handicapped by shit pads, that's the analogy. Performance products should not come handicapped with garbage parts. From a strictly performance point of view, organic brake pads are objectively worse for downhill. Selling expensive DH brakes with shitty pads that can't stand up to a proper DH run is absurd.

@poah: I have Avid XO trails, before that I had Code R's. Organic pads may be fine for some people, but have no place on a brake set such as Codes that are meant for aggressive descending. How would you like it if your new sports car came with the tires from a Prius? That's what it feels like when you buy DH brakes with organic pads. Sure, they work for some people, but they do not live up to the performance of the equipment they came with.

Please take all my organic pads that come on my bikes. They are garbage. They lose brake performance in the wet, they lose brake performance on long descents, they wear out faster (I've literally worn through a full brand new set in one ride in a rain storm). They lack performance when you need it most in exchange for occasionally being quieter. They have no place on a performance bike anywhere with rain or steep terrain.
