…more than any other.
What makes pads the best?
More Bite, Quicker Release, and the Lowest Lap times.
Performance Friction Brakesâ win more championships that any other. What’s our secret? We engineer the bite, torque, and release of our brake pads to interact to give riders superior control, the lowest lap times, and unrivaled fade resistance. NO COMPROMISESä
Race Readyä heat treatment
Provides immediate stopping power with limited bedding.
Performance Friction pads have excellent and consistent
Release (Modulation) from the first stop to the last.
Longer Pad and Rotor Life
Multi-Layer technology increases both pad and
rotor life using a 6 layer system, which also reduces brake noise.
Our patented process bonds the friction to the backing
plate with the highest shear strength in the industry.
Patented Powder Coating
Ensure smooth faultless operation of the brake system
and eliminates corrosion.
NOTENot all compounds are available in all shapes. All PFC pad compounds can be run on the same disc without conditioning the disc between compounds.
Only for use on iron discs. This compound has high initial bite and very high average torque. Long pad life and easy on discs. There is a slight torque rise with temperature to handle the most extreme conditions. 93 is one of the most popular race compounds in the 4-wheeled race market and considered the benchmark material for many other pad manufacturers.
Similar characteristics to 93, but specifically developed to cope with stainless steel discs. This compound is the most widely used for bikes and can be used on both stainless and iron discs. Provides the same advantages as 93; excellent bite, good controllability, virtually fade free, excellent wear rate, very good release. 95 compound is the choice of champions, having been used by Troy Bayliss and John Reynolds to win the World and British Superbike Championships respectively. Our first recommendation as a rain compound pad.
99 compounds have slightly higher bite and higher torque than the 95 compounds with excellent release. Improved modulation thought out its range with a flat torque curve. 99 compound works well with stainless rotors. 99 compounds are very easy on the discs, with very low wear.
01 compound has slightly higher bite and torque for the first 2/3’s of the stop when compared to 93 and 95 compound. At the end of the stop, 01 compound has less torque scatter for improved modulation with excellent release and a flatter torque curve. 95 compounds are very easy on the discs with low wear. Can be used both on Stainless and iron discs.
This is one of the newest generation and the most advanced race compounds in the PFC range. 03 compounds have shown to have excellent initial bite and higher average torque than all PFC compounds. There is a slight rise of torque with temperature to handle the most severe conditions. 03 have excellent release for improved modulation. Very easy on the discs with wear on par with most PFC compounds. Requires finesse so as not to over slow or overwhelm the bike’s setup.
05 has higher initial bite and higher average torque than any other PFC compound. 05 has virtually no torque rise with temperature, and the release and modulation characteristics are second to none. Despite it's considerable performance, 05 has wear comparable to 03. This compound demands the most from the bike’s setup and is designed to handle the most severe applications.
