'74 R90/6 front brake pad recommendations?

Riding style--mostly freeway--lots of lane-splitting with occasional emergency stops. Any brands/model #s you like?

And what's the difference between organic, ceramic and kevlar?

I use Ferodo 'platinum' pads, seem to work fine under most conditions. I fitted HH pads to my 1070 bike, they feel a bit harsh.

Given the stange design of the ATE brakes, I think that your pad choice might be limited?

My braking was drastically improved by EBC HH pads but I have cast iron rotors and Brembo calipers, but I don't know what's available for ATEs. Maybe a brake shop could help out if not.

Options are somewhat limited for ATE calipers:
