I've just worn through my first set of pads on my Avid Elixir 9's. I have no idea about disc brake compounds, but what would you recommend for on road touring/commuting use?

The outgoing pads were Avid sintered pads they stopped well but squealed in the wet. I'm looking for recommendations for low squeal pads that will work well in the wet.

Thanks

Forgot to update on this. I went with Swisstops, they've been fantastic in wet and dry and are silent, I'd recommend for the urban commute
