Aprilia Brembo Brake Pads
Street Bike Compounds
CC – The Organic Road pad
CC The carbon-ceramic compound has evolved from the previous organic compound, thanks to its higher carbon content. This type of material features good durability, good performance hot and cold, wet and dry. It is has a slightly more progressive initial bite and is slightly less aggressive than the sintered pad and is compatible with both steel and cast iron discs. It is ideal for most modern motorcycles with riders looking for high mileage without RR performance.
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!
SC - The Track Pad
The SC (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!
