    This plot represents transition of friction level during a braking application.

    High initial bite type
    High initial bite type gives drivers reliale braking performance at the initial braking application. Easy to decelerate with small pedal pressure even on the long straight line. Good for cars w/o brake servo.
    Common type
    Most common type in three types. Moderate braking force at the initial braking application. Easy to controll at the end of the braking application. Applicable for any car/circuit.
    Flat type
    For users requiring great controllability. Least initial byte in three types. Flat friction level enables great controllability throughout the braking application. Most stable performance under continuous severe condition (continuous change of speed/temperature).

About Bedding-in

Competition-use brake pads need to go through a process to be pre-heated before a race to exhibit its full potential. This process is called bedding-in.

s Method of bedding-in t

Raise the brake disc temperature to around 500Ž without doing any hard braking; seating the discs and pads. Once the seating is finished, bring the car to a complete stop and let the discs cool by air till the disc temperature is below 100Ž.Now there is a film of the brake pad's compound on the disc; the bedding-in process is complete.

  • ¦Select Part #'s have ceramic coated back plates; to prevent heat being transferred to the brake caliper pistons.
  • ¦These brake pads are purpose-built for competition-use. The characteristics of the brake pads may differ depending on car, setting, brake settings, race circuit, and driver.
    Please contact our company for more information and to choose the brake pads that are right for you.
