Unparalleled Braking Performance

– RP-1 is an all-new track day and race-focused brake pad that sets a new high-water mark in EBC Brakes’ 35-year history of creating world-class braking components.

– Developed from the ground-up by the ‘EBC Brakes Racing’ sub-division, RP-1 is the result of the firm’s engineers being ‘let off the leash’ and assigned with the task of creating the highest-performing brake pad they physically could, with no expense spared.

– The ensuing three years of intense R&D, thousands of hours of dyno testing and, of course, hundreds of laps of the UK’s most demanding race circuits in both track and race-focused cars have all resulted in this: a no-compromised, cutting-edge organic pad that offers extreme braking performance at a lower cost compared to other pads on the market.

– Now readily available for a large number of factory sports car and aftermarket race caliper fitments, RP-1 pads are already proving themselves across the globe in the form of not only race wins but also new lap records.

RP-1 Technical Highlights

– Superb modulation gives unprecedented control and feel throughout each braking event

– Extremely low wear rate with stable friction coefficient, even under the harshest on-track driving conditions

– Pads come thermally bedded, eliminating ‘early-life’ fade and minimising bed-in time

– Stainless-steel backing plates reduce heat conduction, lowering caliper operating temperatures
