Very happy.
is that the one that is red in color?
if so the red painted ebc are the carbon ones that never squeal but do not brake as well at the extremes or when wet. carbons are more linear stopping than sintered coming on real strong feeeling.

... an old racer trick is to use sintered pads up front for max braking power and softer carbon pads in the rear to lessen the chance of locking up the rear tire.

i use oem up front and ebc red/carbon in the rear of my bike.
