ECtype / EXTRA Cruise
Better brake performance! Less brake dust! Yet affordable!
  • Made for cruising on the street and highway with better brake performance
  • Longer pad life compared to OEM
  • Low level of brake dust and brake noise
  • Helps for a longer disc life
  • The friction surface of the brake pads are scorched to improve the bedding-in process
  • Mechanical brake pad sensors are installed (Only for models which originally come with sensors)

Is it better to change the brake pads and brake discs at the same time?
EC type グラフ
  • The radar chart represents a comparison of each characteristic between DIXCEL products and general OEM products.
  • Above values are based on actual test results.
    Anti-Noise and Anti-Dust values are tested and calculated after a proper bedding-in procedure has been completed.
What is the difference between ES type and EC type?

EXTRA Speed(ES) and EXTRA Cruise(EC) are two unique products developed to outperform stock brake pads with inexpensive pricing.
ES Type: High temperature tolerance (up to 600℃) with mild initial friction. Characteristics suitable for sporty driving. Generates more brake dust than EC type.
EC Type: Good initial friction for extra safety in city driving. Not suitable for sporty driving which requires high temperature tolerance.

Testing data showing the performance differences of the EC-type pads and OEM pads.

The extra series has the brake performance of a sport brake pads with a price equivalent to OEM pads.
To actually test the performance differences, a braking test was done with an stock Toyota Alphard.

The testing method is rather simple. The car goes through full braking from 80km/h. The distance from the braking point to the point where the car comes to a complete stop is measured.

Test 1 Test 2 Test 3 Test 4 Test 5 The average of the 3 middle numbers
(excluding the max. and min numbers)
Normal 21.80 21.00 19.60 23.20 22.80 21.87
EC 19.70 17.60 17.80 21.00 17.30 18.37

The result, the EC-type has an average of 3.5 meters shorter braking distance compared to the OEM.
