The proprietary ceramic carbon Kevlar compound provides exceptional bite at all temperatures with extreme fade resistance and low rotor wear that no iron based pad can match.
The slight compressibility of the Kevlar gives Carbotech’s their legendary modulation and release characteristics. No on/off switch!
- Ceramic gives the flat torque curve these pads are known for. Cold or hot, expect the most predictable and smooth braking
Using Kevlar instead of steel strings makes a stronger pad, able to withstand much greater abuse that a lower cost pad using copper or steel strands
- What dust they do make is easily removed non-destructive to your wheel’s finish.
Ceramic, carbon and Kevlar compound offers the lowest rotor wear of any high performance or race pad, without any loss of bite or fade resistance.
Choosing the right compound
GS-1 compound offers significantly better bite and a higher maximum operating temperature than standard replacement pads. Almost zero dust and super quiet. Ideal for sport street driving and autocross.
R6 is designed specifically for autocross. Dusty but great bite and modulation at low temps. Less fade resistance that R8 and above so not recommend for track days.
R8 and R10 will be also dusty but otherwise daily driveable race – trackday – autocross pad. R8 for stock size hard compound tires. R10 for oversize medium compound tires. Much higher fade reistance that R6
R12 higher bite and wear than R8, R10. Choose these for race tires and lb/whp better than 15:1
R14 are for endurance racing. Bite about the same as R10, less modulation, longer life. Higher metal content increases rotor wear over other G-Loc compounds.
R18 are our favorite pad. Ultra high bite with great modulation. Longest wear of any G-Loc compound.
G-Loc brakes require their own, uncontaminated transfer layer made by Ceramic-Kevlar pads. If this is not done, you will not experience the full potential of the ceramic-kevlar compound.
You will need to do one of the following:
- Resurface your old rotors
- Completely remove the old transfer layer with a steel wire brush/flapper disc on a drill/grinder
- New rotors
