Positive Mold Technology

Positive Mold Technology improves durability and performance by allowing for even wear. High density, low resin friction material virtually eliminates brake fade and glazing, generates less brake dust, and promotes a longer-lasting , better performing brake pad.

OE Grade Multi-Layer Shim

OE Grade Multi-Layer Shim helps reduce vibration and noise

Environmentally Compliant

Certified Environmentally Compliant to "Better Brake Law" standards

Thermal Scorched

Pre-burnishing or "Thermal Scorching" is the final curing step in quality ceramic brake pad manufacturing. The brake pad's surface is heated to remove any uncured bonding agents and to stabilize the friction material to accelerate the break-in process and enhance stopping performance from the first stop.

Zinc Coated

Zinc Coated to help reduce rust and corrosion for a longer-lasting and better looking rotor

"True" Non-Interference Vane Design

"True" Non-Interference Vane Design retains the structural integrity of the rotor

CNC Cross Drilled and Slotted

Precision-Rounded End Slots are machined to remove brake dust and expel gasses during hard braking

Cross Drilled Holes improve ventilation and cooling for less brake fade and more positive stopping power
