What type of brake pads are the best ?

Anyone get some Vesrah, Galfer, Vortex, EBC, Foreverun Motor or other brake pads?
If so, what kind ? Sintered or Kevlar ? How do they feel? Nice smoother feel over OEM?
I am figuring out what type of brake pads to put on my 2012 suzuki ltr 450 K6.
Thank you.

i doubt most people can tell the difference between pads for general purposes riding. stock pads can easily lock up brake. buy what u get best deal on.

So I had issues with rear brakes this summer getting hot and loosing all rear brake while xc racing. This was even with the dual pistol yfz caliper. The main thing I learned was the importance of the stainless shims on the back of the pads. This helps control the heat transfer from the pads to the caliper. The pads I ended up liking the best are dp brakes. They have a ceramic coating on the piston side pad to further reduce heat soak. Now I can use rear brakes hard the whole 1.5 hours with very little fade.
