I've been riding a Diverge for awhile and just added a new Venge to the arsenal - so most of my miles are now on disc. I've been using what seem to be the default pads - the L02A that Shimano ships with both the 805 and 9170 calipers.

I'm wondering if folks have experience with other pads?

I'm sure terrain matters - I ride in San Francisco. So lots of hills. And this season, also lots of wet.

Do people use different pads when it's wet vs dry season?

For the Bay Area, I would use SwissStop "E" pads all year round.
