knowledge is power
Car brakes work by leveraging three main principles of physics: leverage, hydraulics, and friction.
When changing your brake pads, be sure to inspect and replace your rotors and hardware if necessary to ensure optimal braking performance.
If your brakes squeal until you press the pedal down, it may be your wear indicator telling you to change your pads.
Stopping Power For Up to 3 Times Longer
Patented, transfer-layer technology
The transfer layer protects better and longer than abrasive metal strips commonly featured in other high-end brake pads.
Protective hex pattern
Hex pattern distributes the transfer layer, protecting brake pads and rotors from excessive wear, extending the life of both.
Smooth, safe, quiet stops
Next generation ceramic friction material is copper-free, eco-friendly and built to last.
COMPLETE THE BRAKE JOB
Replace brake pads and rotors together for longer life and more stopping power.
Older rotors can seriously damage new pads, causing premature noise, vibration and wear.
Replacing brake pads and rotors at the same time is critical for peak braking performance and safety.
