What happens if you don't bed in brakes?

If the pads and rotors have not been bed-in correctly, the mechanism of Abrasive and Adherent friction will not work well and use of the brake system, especially at high temperatures, will result in random and uneven deposits of brake pad material on the rotor surface.

How long does it take to bed in MTB brakes?

A bed-in process is required in any metallic brake system, including the brakes on a car, and your disc-brake gravel or road bike is no exception. It's a simple procedure, less than 10 minutes long, and ensures that the first time you really need those discs, they're working at full strength.

How long does it take for new brake pads to bed in?

Bedding-in.

All you have to do is make about 20 complete stops in the car – from 30-0mph – or about the same number of slow-downs from 50-20mph. This will start the bedding-in, for your customer to continue when you hand back the keys. This practice is particularly recommended when you have new coated brake discs.

Do all brake pads need to be bedded in?

All brake pads must be bedded-in with the rotor they will be used against to maximize brake performance. The bedding-in process involves a gradual build up of heat in the rotors and pad compound.
