Well, maybe it's not fade you're experiencing. Fade is when you suddenly have no brake pressure. The lever you are pushing/pulling on will suddenly be at the limit of it's travel and your brakes wont have any effect.

If you mean that the brakes don't feel like they have enough grip to stop the bike quickly, you either have air in the lines or your brake pads and rotors probably have some oily contamination on them.
