EBC Brakes street bike organic range now 100% made using the NRS Hook system.

NRS is the trademark of the firm NUCAP of Canada and is a system where small hooks about one mm tall are pressed into the surface of the backing plate where the friction/brake material is bonded acting like a super strong Velcro. This secures the pads to the backing plate MUCH MORE SECURELY than simple adhesive bonding systems used by all other brake manufacturers.

EBC Brakes is one of a handful of quality companies who has been granted this license and the production line , machinery, tools ,testing and cleaning equipment needed to adopt this process represents an investment of over 1.0 million Euros.

So what does EBC get by this investment?
Well we certainly have NOT raised our prices but what we have done is made a quantum leap in product quality and drastically reduced the chance of pad separation after the vehicle is used in the severest condition of water spray and where street bikes left parked outside in rainfall.
