SLX brakes

I have a pair of SLX brakes on my MTB, the pads aren't worn and I just have replaced the discs. The brakes have no bite, very poor performance. I did everything I need to to bed them in, I've just had the pads out, cleaned them and roughed them up against the concrete wall!! Anyone any suggestions other than new pads!! TIA

New pads. You could try sanding them (not against a wall), but if that doesn't work, new ones. Uber Bike for cheap, good pads.

My wife's SLX pads did this - possible contamination as it's not an overly 'well used' bike and has only been subject to light braking - the pads glaized, worked initially after sanding, but soon were rubbish. Cleaned disks and changed pads. Fine.

Did you clean the new discs after fitting them?

My SLX pads did this for no identifiable reason. New pads a and a clean of the discs fixed it, but at best they're still only meh.
