RP-X™ Racing Brake Pads

Following the hugely successful launch of RP-1™, EBC Brakes Racing increases its motorsport brake pad range with the introduction of our latest ultra-high-performance track & race material, RP-X™.

Designed for vehicles driven hard on track, RP-X™ possesses a high friction level of 0.55 between 0 – 850°C and achieves 100% brake effect from cold. This makes RP-X™ an excellent choice for sprint racing or hill climb events, where full brake performance is essential without requiring any ‘warming up’, but also makes RP-X™ well suited to any type of circuit use where a high initial bite and powerful brake response is desirable.

EBC Racing would like to emphasise that it is not a case of RP-X™ being ‘better’ than RP-1™, rather it is ‘different’ and designed to provide a distinctly different response characteristic (more aggressive bite) which some drivers may prefer. For a detailed comparison between the 2 materials, please read the following article where we aim to help you make an informed choice on which material is likely to work best for your application and individual driving style:


  • Made 100% in EBC Brakes’ Bristol, UK pad factory
  • Stainless steel backing plates (reduced heat conduction, no paint)
  • Backplates feature Nucap® NRS® hook pad retention system
  • Excellent pad life with moderate disc life
  • NOT R90 approved for road-use in European markets
  • ‘Love it or Return it’ performance guarantee

Experience both EBC Racing materials for the price of one

Try out both of EBC Brakes Racing’s formidable track-focused pad materials for yourself, for the price of just one set of pads.

Order any set of RP-1™ or RP-X™ pads from www.ebcbrakesdirect.com or www.perfectbrakes.com and receive a matching set of the other material completely free.

Simply purchase the pads as normal, try them and then contact sales@ebcbrakesdirect.com or sales@perfectbrakes.com then post them back to us once you’ve finished with them, and we’ll send out the other material for you to compare them against.

Both RP-1™ and RP-X™ offer exceptional braking performance, but do so in distinctively different ways, comprehensively spanning the wide range of on-track driving styles and preferences. EBC, therefore, wants to allow our customers to try out both of our race pad materials, finding the one they prefer and the material that works best for their individual application. And thanks to www.ebcbrakesdirect.com and www.perfectbrakes.com, now you can.
