Brembo has launched the new Brembo Xtra brake pads, developed to maximize the advantages of Brembo’s Aftermarket range of drilled and slotted discs. Brembo says that these new pads are the ideal solution for enthusiast car drivers who enjoy sports driving without compromising on comfort and duration during the daily road use.
The new Xtra brake pads are manufactured by Brembo using the BRM X L01 material. It’s made from more than 30 different components that have been developed by its advanced research laboratory.
It’s thanks to this material that the Brembo’s new Xtra brake pads are the perfect match for the Xtra ad Max sports discs. Not only do they boost the performance in regards to the pedal feeling but also in terms of comfort and durability.
Compared to the compound used for the standard pads that are equivalent to the original, this new solution features a high friction coefficient that reflects a more decisive and stable braking, both at low as well as high temperatures. All this, assuring a greater driving comfort and an improved brake pedal precision, without compromising on the product’s mileage.
Brembo’s new Xtra brake pads under went a scorching treatment to eliminate in advance those gases that can cause a significant reduction of the friction coefficient between the disc and the pad at high temperatures (known as “fading”). This causes a loss of braking efficiency. Thanks to this treatment and to the carefully-judged mixture of components used, Brembo’s new Xtra brake pads show a constant behavior both during the high temperature braking cycles as well as during the following cold cycles.
A new box has been redesigned for the packaging, including the one for the Xtra and Max discs. It has a graphic layout that highlights the “X” factor making Brembo’s offer for this segment unique as it emphasizes the product’s technical look. The distinguishing feature of the pad is Brembo’s logo laser-engraved on the friction material and also the tampography on the pad’s shim which also displays Brembo’s Xtra logo.
The new Brembo Xtra brake pads will be on sale from the end of 2018 and will be completed with over 100 part numbers by the first half of 2019.
