Drive your M-car hard and the chances are you’ve experienced brake fade at some point. That’s where our High Performance RP650 Brake Pads come in. A simple replacement for your factory pads using the standard braking hardware, they deliver a much higher resistance to high temperature fade. This makes them perfect for fast road driving and even occasional track day use, yet without any compromise in daily driving.
A lot of our compound testing focused on developing a pad that finds that sweet-spot between excellent cold bite and high temperature fade resistance. The result is a medium aramid fiber compound with friction coefficient of 0.42mu in the temperature range of 450 – 650°C.
This compound is the secret to how our high-performance RP650 brake pads provide superior stopping power and reliable performance under even the most demanding conditions yet without requiring a warmup period - essential for cars that have to perform perfectly in daily driving duties yet stand up to the demands of fast road and occasional track use.
As well as outright performance, another key development focus has been around perfecting pedal feel - resulting in progressive braking with unparalleled pedal response underfoot. The slotted and chamfered construction ensures quiet and smooth braking.
Meanwhile, our RP650 brake pads are designed to last longer than traditional brake pads, reducing the need for frequent replacements - even saving you money in the long run. This also means that the pads produce less dust than traditional brake pads, keeping your wheels cleaner and reducing the need for frequent cleaning.
Finally, it’s a legal requirement in most countries for brake pads to carry ECE-R90 certification – yet many other aftermarket pads do not. Not only is this ECE-R90 standard essential for legality (and potentially your insurance validity), this regulation gives you the peace of mind that the pads are tested and approved for cold performance, speed, sensitivity, friction behavior, compressibility, shear and hardness. So, the pads will work just as well when cold as when up to full track temperatures.
- Perfect for fast road use
- Public highway legal – R90 Approved
- Works from cold – excellent cold bite and high temperature fade resistance
- Suitable for short use track days
- Due to bedding in material – bedding in happens naturally over the first 100-200 miles in urban driving
- Quiet and smooth braking / shimmed / slotted / chamfered construction
- Responsive pedal feel for progressive braking
