I have the 2014 Turbo S model with the Formula 1 brakes so not so easy to find.

If the thickness of the brakepads is 1mm or less, change it immediately. It's relatively cheap to do this and will directly affect your safety, so don't hesitate on doing it and keep a few spare ones just in case. You'll need them sooner or later. For my Turbo FLR 2016 it took a while until I found out that the pads I need are the Shimano B01S (Shimano Deore BR-M506 breaks).

I have been considering replacing brakes but with these relatively cheap changes I can live with the Formulas. They are reasonably powerful and now quiet.

The Turbo S has the Formula R1s brakes up until 2016. They changed to the Shimano Deore XT in 2016.
