- Fully floating 2-piece rotor that allows outer ring to expand freely in response to heat. This reduces stress which in turn extends rotor life and reduces the tendency for rotor cracking during extreme use.
- Drive bobbins machined from a single piece of stainless steel giving maximum strength and corrosion resistance. Stainless bobbins reduce the requirement for regular disc maintenance and ensures the outer ring continues to float freely even when used on the public road with corrosive salts and other road grime.
- Each bobbin assembly features an anti-rattle spring clip ensuring silent operation when driving on the public highway
- Rotor rings feature 48 directional internal curved vanes for improved rotor coolin
- Friction rings are cast from high carbon G3500 alloy giving excellent wear properties and improved thermal capacity. All EBC disc rings are cast using the ‘centre split’ casting method, ensuring a balanced casting that will not distort under high heat, an issue common with cheaper ‘moulded out’ castings.
- Unique Swept Groove slot design for effective evacuation of braking dust and gasses whilst ensuring good initial ‘bite’ on brake apply
- Replacement disc rings for EBC floating rotors are significantly less expensive than our major competitors.
EBC Brakes sponsored the 89th Wild & Woolly motorcycle race
EBC Brakes sponsored the 89th Wild and Woolly Boxing Day motorcycle race, which was another muddy success with a huge crowd of spectators turning up to brave the freezing temperatures. The charity event that starts at 10am for the practice round, then 11am for the official race start, is free to spectators with discretionary bucket donations going to help local charities.
The Wild and Woolly event is held in a field in Blisworth, Northamptonshire and consists of 17 laps over a notoriously challenging track full of mud filled water crossings. The starter flag was dropped at exactly 11 o’clock when the motocross bikes engines roared into life and the first off the starting line was previous winner of three occasions, Jack Lee on his Beta.
Fraser Law, the organiser of the Wild and Woolly, described the 2014 race as being ‘epic’ as the racers competed in the most horrendous sticky mud becoming harder and heavier as the race wore on. Most riders were stuck for minutes at a time before being towed out to end what was a very tough race.
EBC manufacture a range of tough, all weather motocross brakes that would be superb to use in the type of terrain that the Wild and Woolly is set in. These include MXS series Moto-X race brake pads, Carbon X brake pads and EBC Extreme Pro™ For Motocross & Supermoto Use. The best disc brake for motocross race use is the Oversize MX disc rotor. (More product details below).
The winner of the 2014 race for his fourth time was an ecstatic Jack Lee with brother Chas finishing in 2nd, Matt Willis in 3rd.
Frasier Law quoted:
Well done to all the riders for taking part in this epic race!
He also added a big thank you to Chris Harris for the use of his land and to thousands of spectators who helped raise money for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and the Help for Heroes charity.

EBC MXS series Moto-X race brake pads are a great choice for use in all weather conditions be it wet or dry as found in motocross racing. This is because of their highest rated HH friction for maximum performance and stopping power. This double H formula also ensures these race specific brake pads have a long lifetime of use. Read more about MX-s Series Race Pads here.
Also known as Carbon Enduro formula pads, these brakes have the unique benefit of having lower heat transfer and generation, although they don’t have the same life span as that of a sintered copper brake pad.
Read more about Carbon X or TT Brake Pads here!
An ultra high friction sintered brake pad formula, designed for fastest motocross race use. Extreme Pro is a high end race pad option for championship riders. All rear fitment brake pads feature solid type radiator shims to minimize heat transfer made from laser cut stainless steel. These EPFA MX brake pads also include pad hexagon drive slider pins.
EBC Brakes Oversize MX Disc Rotors are fully floating with 280mm optimum diameter. Fully floating rotors are perfect for motocross racing as the rotors resist warping better and handle heat loads more efficiently. They are British laser profiled and built with precision engineering and are lightweight with a contoured profile rotor blade that aids self cleaning outside profiled curves.
The rotor blade is manufactured from German mill rolled stainless steel rotor and the centre hub is decorated with EBC logo that looks great on any bike. Equipped with a six button stainless steel drive button system these rotors come with a billet aluminium relocation bracket designed and created by MX Expert Ted Devol in California.
