Following the hugely successful launch of RP-1, EBC Brakes Racing increases its motorsport brake pad range with the introduction of their latest ultra-high-performance track & race material, RP-X.
Designed for heavy and/or high-powered vehicles driven hard on track, RP-X possesses a high friction level of 0.55 between 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.
