Superstreet formula with significant dust reduction for Modified MINIs and fastest street driving. (These pads may dust some during break-in, and maybe even 'squeal' a little - but the dust and noise will subside after break-in. Use anti-squeal compound when installing for added prevention against squeal.)
This material is an Aramid fibre based brake compound enhanced with ceramic particles. Updated from the previous generation pre-ceramic compound, this material is light years ahead. It lasts longer, it brakes better and is quieter. Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc (brake rotor).
This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking. It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a passenger car/sedan/sport compact/hot hatch 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph. Features EBC Brake-In surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in. Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with approx. 50% dust reduction compared to other pads.
* High Initial Brake Effect
* Strong Resistance To Fade Under Load
* Reduced Rotor Wear
* Low Dusting Of Wheels
* Shimmed; Chamfered; And Slotted
* Features EBC Brake-In Coating For Fast Break In
* Zero Noise And Extended Lifetime
* Accepts factory brake wear sensor
These pads are coated with 'BRAKE-IN SURFACE COATING'.
[ ] Effective immediately after installation.
[ ] Conditions rotor surface.
[ ] Prevents early life noise.
[ ] Helps pads bed-in fast.
These pads will produce some dust and at times, a slight squeal during the break-in period - the dusting will greatly diminish and the noise typically goes away after a few hundred miles.
For a slightly less aggressive pad, take a look at G2NMB2022 GREENSTUFF Pads or for track use, G2NMB2026 YELLOW Track/Street pads.

Some BRAKE DUST is inevitable from every brake pad and it is impossible to totally eliminate dust otherwise brake vibration will occur. We never advertise ZERO DUST we only advertise LESS DUST and we appreciate that in some cases dust will be almost the same as original pads. However, please note that dust is always more severe in the first 1000 miles of driving especially if pads were fitted to partly worn rotors. Another condition which promotes significant dust is wrong pad compound choice. If you have a car with over 200bhp (horse power) or drive above what we might call a spirited street level, for example green pads would not be suitable and red ceramic, being a slightly harder pad, can handle these higher speeds and loads and gives off less dust … there may be cases of overload where the Green pads are carbonising in use and a higher spec pad (Red Ceramic) is needed. Yellow compounds are a fantastic brake, probably our best but they are equal in dust to Original parts and should not be chosen if a low dust pad is what you need. Our CLEANEST pads are RED CERAMIC for sedans.

Brakes are a safety critical part of your vehicle and should be installed by a competent mechanic following vehicle manufacturers installation procedure. The surface of these brake pads is coated with a red coating known as BRAKE-IN. This coating helps your newly installed brake pads to 'seat' or bed-in quickly. However, pads should be used gently for the first 100 miles until optimum braking is observed. Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc (brake rotor).
Rotors should be replaced with new when installing new brake pads. Failure to do so can result in brake noise as well as reduced braking efficiency. Avoid contamination of pad surface with any forms of grease that you may use to lubricate caliper sliders.
For a special tool to test the condition of your brake fluid, see G2NMB1000. This tool will SAVE YOU $$$ by indicating when you need to change the brake fluid. This will allow you to get the maximum use out of the brake fluid - no more changing fluid routinely as a 'precaution', change it only when you need to!!
