The SBS DC Dual Carbon road racing compound has since the introduction in 2001 proven to be the ”Choice of Champions”.
World top racing teams have achieved a long row of race wins, lap records, national and World Championship titles in Superstock, Supersport, Superbike and Endurance racing using SBS Dual Carbon pads.
- Thermal bedding-in and brake fade eliminated by use of DEST technology.
- High initial bite
- High friction level and progressive brake feel.
- High thermal stability.
- Consistent brake performance and brake lever position.
- Low pad wear.
- Rotor friendly due to transfer film generated on disc surface.
- Available for the majority of new Superstock, Supersport and racing brake calipers.
- Recommended for top level international and national championship road racing.
- For race use only
Bedding-in procedure for SBS-DC.
When changing for SBS-DC from using another type of brake pad material - Follow this Bedding-in procedure very carefully:
- Remove existing friction material deposit from brake discs - using eg. emery paper #150
- Do a series of gentle brakings until pad-surface is in full contact with disc-surface.
- After pad/disc contact is achieved - repeated short brakings building up heat in discs and pads until a very thin and uniform dull/black/darkblue layer of friction material (transfer film) is established on the brake disc.
- Then a period to allow discs to cool again before proper use.
- Then a few easy laps building up heat - ready for race use.
When bedding-in procedure IS needed. Always follow the above bedding-in procedure - when changing for SBS-DC for the first time OR when using new brake discs.
When bedding-in procedure is NOT needed.When brake discs are covered by SBS-DC friction material (transferfilm) - new pads only need about one/two laps to be in full contact with disc-surface - then the pads are race ready (Thermal bedding-in as described above in point 1. - 4. is not needed)
Cleaning of brake discs - NOT when using SBS-DC
When brake discs are covered by SBS-DC friction material (transferfilm) - Do not clean/sand/grind the brake discs after each session.
