SA – The Sintered Road Pad
These Sintered road pads are Brembo's most popular aftermarket pads. The new SA (front) and SP (rear) sintered compounds are excellent for the latest generation sports bikes. Manufactured through a particular production process, these brake pads have a high friction coefficient, excellent initial bite and are superb in both wet and dry weather for fast road use. These are an excellent alternative to Original Equipment pads!
SR - The Track Pad
The SR (front) pad is a sintered high performance race pad specifically for competition use. It has a very high and stable friction coefficient particularly at the extremely high temperatures generated in racing and track-day use. However, because it is sintered it is excellent both hot or cold so it is a superb pad for track days, racing or high performance road use. It is not suitable for use on rear discs!
RC - The Road Race Pad
The RC (front) pad is a carbon ceramic pad designed specifically for road racing. It has a very high and stable friction coefficient, particularly at the extremely high temperatures generated in racing. However, this carbon ceramic pad has slightly softer initial bite and a more progressive feel than it's sintered equivalent. It is specifically designed to operate at high temperatures but is not so good at low temperatures so it is not suitable for road use and should not be used on rear discs!
Z04 - The Race Pad
The Brembo Racing Z04 compound was developed specifically for racing and designed to provide maximum performance: The Brembo Racing Z04 compound was developed specifically for racing and designed to provide maximum performance in the most extreme competitions. The most significant characteristics of this material are its high friction and consistent efficiency, especially at high disc temperatures. These characteristics ensure superlative, consistent braking for the entire duration of the race and make the braking system much less prone to fade.
Brembo Racing Z04 brake pads are used in the World Superbike and SuperSport Championships. A true “Factory Pad” available also for the most common super sport bikes.
Z03 - The Endurance Pad
Greater braking control, greater system stability, increased braking power, outstanding resistance to high temperatures, reduced wear and easy running-in: these are the characteristics provided by Brembo Racing friction material. In addition to all this, the Brembo Racing Z03 compound provides extraordinary duration which makes it the ideal material for Endurance races.
Brembo Racing Z03 brake pads are used by the best teams in the World Endurance Championship and in the most important endurance races such as the Suzuka 8h and the Bol D’Or.
Z10 - Brembos NEW Performance Pad
The new Z10 brake pads are born from Brembo's experience on racing circuits.
For completeness, the new Brembo product joins the much more famous Z04 and Z03 and is mainly designed for amateur riders and all users who use the bike for sporting purposes and / or during days on the circuit.
The advantages of this new compound are quite evident, being easy to run in and not requiring high temperatures for optimal operation.
The geometry of the pad is the same as the original pads, so there is no need to intervene on the brake system other than to replace them.
