Unleash Superior Braking with Carbon Shims
Ultimate Braking Performance
Experience a new level of driving precision with HEL's Carbon Front Brake Pad Shims, specifically designed for the Renault Clio 3RS, Megane 2RS, and Alpine A110. Crafted with high-strength carbon, these shims significantly minimise brake pad heat and offer superior braking performance, ensuring maximum safety and control on your journey.
Enhanced Durability for the Road Ahead
Constructed for endurance, these Carbon Front Brake Pad Shims are built to last. The carbon composition ensures high resistance to wear and tear, even under extreme driving conditions. Designed to fit perfectly with Clio 3RS, Megane 2RS, and Alpine A110 models, they guarantee long-lasting, peak performance for your vehicle's braking system.
Drive with Confidence
Feel the assurance of unwavering quality and meticulous craftsmanship as you navigate through each bend and straight. These Carbon Front Brake Pad Shims not only enhance your car's braking efficiency but also instil confidence in your driving, letting you take on any road or weather conditions fearlessly.
HEL Performance have pulled out all the stops when developing their carbon fibre brake pad shims. They've used the finest carbon fibre, combined with an exclusive resin which is non-combustible and thermally resistant to temperatures over 400°C (752°F). This special resin cures an attractive yellow or orange depending on the batch.
These don't just look the part though: initial testing carried out by a professional racing driver in various road and track conditions showed a huge average temperature drop of 49°C (120.2°F) on the front calipers.
HEL carbon fibre shims come in at a super-lightweight 3.5 grams per shim, compared to weighty titanium which are a typical 17 grams per shim. That's a dramatic 79% weight saving.
That's not the only comparison which makes titanium inferior though: carbon fibre also has a much lower heat conduction compared to titanium (1W/mK compared to 22W/mK for titanium and 65W/mK for steel). Anything that helps reduce the temperature and increase efficiency of brake components is a good thing, especially as caliper seals are at risk of being damaged when they get too hot.
Installing these carbon fibre brake pad shims will certainly inspire confidence that when you brake aggressively, all the components are being kept cool and working at their best.
You can also re-use the shims when changing pads, as long as they're in a good condition.
