RP-1™ & RP-X™ Racing Brake Pads

RP-1™

EBC Brakes Racing’s dedicated motorsport pad RP-1™ pairs high-performance with unprecedented modulation and control, resulting in a track pad that feels uniquely different to the competition and allows drivers to extract every last tenth from each and every braking zone.

RP-1™ Features

Made 100% in EBC Brakes’ Bristol, UK pad factory
Stainless steel backing plates (reduced heat conduction, no paint)
Backplates feature Nucap® NRS® hook pad retention system
Good pad life with excellent disc life
NOT R90 approved for road-use in European markets

     

    Designed for vehicles driven hard on track, RP-1™ possesses a moderately high friction level of 0.45 between 100 – 750°C. The more progressive response characteristic of RP-1™ makes it well suited for inherently ‘over-servoed’ vehicles where a softer pad material is desirable to allow greater finesse when on the brakes.

    RP-X™

    Following the hugely successful launch of RP-1™, EBC Brakes Racing increases its motorsport brake pad range with the introduction of our latest ultra-high-performance track & race material, RP-X™.

    RP-X™ Features

    Made 100% in EBC Brakes’ Bristol, UK pad factory
    Stainless steel backing plates (reduced heat conduction, no paint)
    Backplates feature Nucap® NRS® hook pad retention system
    Excellent pad life with moderate disc life
    NOT R90 approved for road-use in European markets

       

      Designed for vehicles driven hard on track, RP-X™ possesses a high friction level of 0.55 between 0 – 850°C and achieves 100% brake effect from cold. This makes RP-X™ an excellent choice for sprint racing or hill climb events, where full brake performance is essential without requiring any ‘warming up’, but also makes RP-X™ well suited to any type of circuit use where a high initial bite and powerful brake response is desirable.

      Should I choose RP-1™ or RP-X™ Pads?

      EBC Racing would like to emphasise that it is not a case of RP-1 being ‘less good’ than RP-X™, rather it is ‘different’ and designed to provide a distinctly different response characteristic (less aggressive bite) which some drivers may prefer.
