The C1 brake pad compound was designed and developed to meet the braking needs of medium to high temperature racing applications. As brake system temperatures quickly increase and decrease, C1 provides consistent performance while remaining fade resistant. C1 has proven to be extremely rotor friendly and provides exceptional pad life without requiring lengthy pad break-in (bedding) procedures.
C1 is widely used in dirt track racing and is the ultimate pad for all medium temperature applications. Recommended temperature use: 400-900 degrees.
- High torque with excellent control qualities
