Carbotech™ Bobcat 1521™ Performance Street Pads

The Bobcat 1521™ is Carbotech's high performance street compound that is our most successful compound. The Bobcat compound is known for its awesome release and modulation, along with unmatched rotor friendliness. A great upgrade for the street driven MINI looking for improved braking 'feel' and performance. These pads are slotted for the factory brake wear sensor.

Fits the following models:

2007-2013 R56 Mini Cooper and Cooper S Hatchback
2008-2014 R55 Mini Cooper and Cooper S Clubman
2009-2015 R57 Mini Cooper and Cooper S Convertible
2011-2016 R60 Mini Cooper and Cooper S Countryman (see note below)
2013-2016 R60 Mini Cooper and Cooper S Paceman (see note below)

Note: The Countryman uses the 'Cooper S Front' pads for Countryman Cooper and Countryman Cooper S (and ALL4) models. The rear pads (unslotted) are unique and listed separately.

Like our AX™ & XP™ line of compounds, Bobcat 1521™ is a Ceramic based friction material offering minimal rotor damage and non corrosive dust. Bobcat 1521™ offers outstanding performance, even when cold, low dusting and low noise with an excellent initial bite.

This compound's virtually perfect linear torque production provides incredible braking force without ABS intervention. Bobcat 1521™ operating range starts out at ambient and goes up to 900°F. Bobcat 1521™ is suitable for ALL street cars, perfect for your tow vehicle, police cruiser, and has won multiple SCCA Solo 2 and Prosolo National Championships.

The Bobcat 1521™ compound has been found to last two-three times longer than OE pads you can purchase at a dealership or national retailer. Bobcat 1521™ compound has also been found to extend the life of your rotors 2-3 times. That's one of the beauties of Carbotech Ceramic brake compounds. Bobcat 1521™ is NOT recommended for any track use.
