Ice Tech Pads

I have been wondering how long should a pair of pads last ? I have had a pair of Ice Tech organic pads which lasted 3 trips, 3 days, about 200 km. There was few hardcore downhill courses during these 3 days and a lot of breaking due to my crappy skills, but 3 days doesn't seem a lot. I thought that even cheap break pads would last longer.

    I've trashed pads on a single muddy Wales ride.

    I have destroyed a set of pads in a day more than once. Usually when wet and gritty. I had one set wear in a morning in the Alps.

    Any abrasive mud/grit and organic pads won't last long at all.

    Being icetech makes no difference at all of course.

    I can make my SS Kevlars last about 9months, that's because I'm so slow I never need to brake, not that I don't brake as I'm so awesome!
