Benefits of the G-Loc ceramic – Kevlar based brake pad
- 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 G-Loc their class leading 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 vs. a lower cost pad using copper or steel strands
- What dust they do make is easily removed and 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
The GS1compound is direct OE replacement pad yet offers better bite and a higher maximum operating temperature. Ideal for sport street driving and autocross.
R6 is designed for purpose built or focused autocrossers.
R8 and R10 will be a dusty but otherwise daily drivable race – trackday – autocross pad.
R8 for high performance street tires and/or novice – intermediate drivers.
R10 or R12 for race tires and intermediate – advanced drivers.
R14 are for endurance racing only. Can be used for club racing on heavier cars to improve pad life.
R18 are the top of the line, highest bite and longest life G-Loc compound.
At maximum braking, the car should ideally lock fronts just before rears on good pavement in a straight line. Most production based cars with without significant rear downforce should use one step lower .mu pad in rear.
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
