As EBC’s flagship street brake pad material for prestige and faster cars, EBC Redstuff ceramic
Brake pads sets new standards in brake performance.

Redstuff ceramic brake pads have always been known for its low dust ability but the latest blend has greatly reduced the phenomenon of pad “Pick up” or disc scoring and reduced dust even further.

Tested at the UK Motor Industries Research Association (MIRA) in witnessed tests early Redstuff reduced car stopping distance in tests by almost 50 feet from 100 MPH offering a staggering 30% brake improvement.

Redstuff brake pads are however as a harder compound does take longer to fully bed in to achieve its highest levels of performance (can be up to 1000 miles/1600 Kms urban use) during which time the odd “Chirp” of brake noise may be heard when starting from cold in damp and cold conditions at walking pace speed. One press of the pedal to clear the rotor of any dampness and this disappears to leave EBC Redstuff a pad that inspires confidence in all cars. The motto is be patient give the pads a full chance to bed down.

Redstuff is only available for heavier and faster cars and does find its self at its best on slightly heavier cars. Selecting the right grade of EBC brake pad for you car is important and you can see the entire EBC selection and how to choose the right brakes for your car by switching to this linked page.

Brake dust has been rated by many OEM builders to be a more serious source of complaints than even brake squeal and as such EBC Brakes is proud to bring you with this new EBC Redstuff blend what is probably a world first in a pad that is almost dust free yet delivers performance braking.

Less dust also means less rotor wear and it is almost guaranteed that your rotors will last double as long as when used with the more abrasive steel fibre brake compounds used by almost all of our competition.

EBC Redstuff should be used at both front and rear for optimum balanced brake performance.

High Performance lowest dust rating pads for Prestige imports and faster street driving.

There are two reasons our customers love Redstuff, First because they are the lowest dust pad we have encountered by reducing dust by 60-90%. Plus the minimal dust you see is very easily removed with a simple sponge wash as it contains no steel fibre particles as in all other pads. Second they brake like an alligator right from cold (as good as Original pads or better) and just get better as they heat up.

This material is a aramid fibre based brake compound enhanced with ceramic particles. If you have previously tried EBC redstuff (pre-ceramic compound) this material is light years ahead. It lasts longer, it brakes better and is quieter.

Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc (brake rotor). This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking.

It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a passenger car/sedan/sport compact/hot hatch 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph. Features EBC Brake-In surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in. Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with approx. 50% dust reduction.

Most EBC Red Ceramic pads are approved to ECE R90 brake safety regulation.

  1. I’ve currently got about 50,000 miles on a set of Redstuff pads. These are great pads. Absolutely silent, low dust, excellent fade resistance and good cold bite. I prefer the Greenstuff pad for daily driving, but the Redstuff has a higher fade resistance and more progressive feel near the limits. Reds are better suited for auto-x cars that see street use than for street cars that see auto-x use…if that makes sense.

  2. I just wanted to follow up with you to say the replacement parts arrived and the solved the issue 100%.

    The car is perfect now!

    Thank you so much for some amazing customer support and advice! I have taken it upon myself to let everyone in my local Subaru Forum (3000+ members) know all about how you handled my issues and that I couldn’t be happier with your products.

    You have an EBC customer for life… if you make rotors and pads for a vehicle I own… I will be using them.

  3. After “fighting” with the dealer on the chatter in my brakes from the beginning when hot, I felt they wouldn’t honor the warranty, I upgraded to EBC dimpled/slotted rotars and EBC dustless pads. The chatter was gone and the braking is much better. Even my wife has commented on the improvement in braking in her ’06 Chevrolet HHR. I liked the improvement in braking so much, I replaced the brakes on my ’07 Ford Ranger with EBC dimpled/slotted rotors and EBC dustless pads. Again, the improvement in braking is very noticeable. Thanks for a great product. A much needed improvement over factory brakes!

    • I’ve the same problem with my 2014 subaru forester turbo. Brake fade is so bad, my family does not trust the car any more after a hit to the car in front of us on a highway stop and go traffic. Brakes simply stop braking due to high summer temperature. I’ll try this redstuff.

  4. After 34.000 km the original discs & pads front & rear has been worn. A friend told me to buy the redstuff so I bought them. I mounted them and it squeaked very loud only the rear left pad, so i think this one has been damaged due to shipping. After 1600km (~1000miles) the pad was ok. Now the breaking is very good, quite low dust, no noise. Only if I drive like rally there is some fading in the breaking, maybe because the car is so heavy. So I will try the Yellowstuff next time. All in all still a very good choice!

  5. Great pads got them and some 8 inch rotors to bring my 6yo Hayes Mags back to life. I am 105kg and have used them on Kuranda DH and Bump track with little to no fade.

  6. What is this brake dust everyone is complaining about. Since I switched to RedStuff, I haven’t seen brake dust or even brake molecules. Excellent product.

  7. These pads are excellent! I’ve been through quite a few different brands of pads and rotors and have not found a better product than these. I will be using the Redstuff pads off my Cobra until it becomes an all out drag car and then will probably switch to Yellowstuff. These pads are very quiet and do not produce a lot of dust. These pads with the Turbo Groove Rotors from EBC are perfect for the aggressive style of driving I do.

  8. Fabulous brakes and phenominal stopping power at an affordable price, A+++++ rating!

  9. Been using RedStuff on my BMWs and now my Wife’s Volvo V70 XCAWD….LOVE THE REDSTUFF!!!! Nice, quiet braking and lasts longer than expected. For the first time, I am breaking from Brembo and I purchased EBC Cross-Drilled and Slotted Rotors, I’m excited to have them on the Volvo…
    Thanks Again!

  10. I finally have clean wheels. these pad may brake a bit better and last a bit longer, but wow! no more dirty wheels. i have gone for two weeks and the wheels still look great. what little bit of dust that does show up comes off completely in an automatic car wash. BMW should be ashamed that they don’t use these as OEM!

  11. I just wanted to say that your brake pads are absolutely AWESOME! I have a 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback GTS, and ever since I got it in January, I’ve been prepping it to run on road courses in the Northeast. I did that several times in the fall, and I have EBC Redstuff pads to thank my big improvement in handling and lap times. My first time at Lime Rock Park, I used the “performance” pads that came with the drilled/slotted rotors I had installed. They glazed after one day at the track. I spent a ton of time researching the next option online, and EBC kept coming up. So, I dove in & bought the Redstuff series pads, followed the “brake in” directions to the letter, then took them up to Lime Rock. Damn! What a difference!!! I felt very confident after a few hard braking sessions into the Big Bend turn, and then just laid into them the rest of the day. No noise, super smooth pedal-feel, awesome “bite”, and I was really surprised at the minimal amount dust on my rims at the end of the day. I’m sold, and you have a new EBC brake pads customer for life!

  12. Hi there, we have always used EBC brake pads on all our cars and they deliver amazing performance, so well done to you all!! We have just brought Redstuff front pads for our new Audi a7.

  13. Porsche cars have excellent brakes from the factory, but I wanted something that stopped in the usual efficient Porsche manner yet gave me less dust. After a lot of research, I decided on EBC RedStuff pads. Boy am I happy that I did. No noise, FAR less dust (and the dust you do get washes off 10x easier), and they actually stop noticeably BETTER then the stock Porsche pads (Pagid, in my case). These pads are going on my wife’s 300E and my son’s Jetta Wolfsberg at the very next pad change! Excellent product EBC ! Bravo !
