Hey guys, I've been trying to locate a couple pairs of SwissStop 15s Sintered metal disc pads to upgrade my TRP Spyre system (along with some Shimano RT-99 Freeza rotors) and I can not for the life of me locate even one single pair of these anywhere on the interwebz! And I've been digging. Are they back ordered, what's up? Anybody can hook me up? Thanks. Cheers.

I had the same issue a few months ago and ended up ordering some Nukeproof pads for my Spyres from Chain Reaction in the UK.  They're half the price and I can't tell any difference in performance.  FWIW, I ride pretty steep terrain here along the Front Range in CO and the stopping power has been excellent.  Here's a URL:

Thanks for the heads up! I've ordered some Gekors this time but i'll be sure to try the Nukeproof next time. Not sure why they didn't pop on my radar ; the reviews seem quite positive!!! Ride on. Cheers.

I think they were discounted.

Bit late, but I use the E-bike Swissstop pads in my TRP Spyres. You will burn your rotors long before these pads fade, they're pretty good. One big plus with Swissstop pads is that the lower edge of the pad is slightly ground down, so even though it's the old tall Deore standard the pads will contact modern rotors at the right height. 

Although you can achieve the same thing with any pad if you have a bench grinder or something. 😉
