In About Us
EBC’s highest performing friction level ever
Developed from the ground up as a focussed track day and race pad, RP-1™ sets a new high-water mark in EBC’s 35-year history making world class brake pads.
By adopting a no-compromise approach coupled with cutting-edge organic friction chemistry, RP-1™ shows just what’s achievable when EBC’s engineers were let off the leash and given the simple mandate ‘develop the highest performing pad, money no object’. RP-1™ is the pinnacle of 3 years R&D, 1,000’s hours dyno testing, 100’s laps of UK circuits with EBC’s development Nissan GT-R and unanimous approval by club-race teams across the UK.
After two years of research and testing, EBC Brakes launches its flagship race pad material to complete the line-up of performance and track pads currently offered – called RP-1.
Made 100% in the EBC Brakes Bristol UK facility from a Carbon Kevlar blend of materials, capable of temperatures and stability rarely seen in performance brakes. The pads feature:
True Race performance to highest race temps
Longer wear life under race conditions
Stable and repeatable braking lap after lap
Stainless steel back-plates (no paint)
Revolutionary Nucap® NRS system hook pad retention
Kind to brake discs/rotors
Money back performance guarantee
Superb modulation gives the driver unprecedented control and feel throughout the braking event.
All RP-1™ pads come thermally-bedded, eliminating ‘early life’ fade and making them a true ‘plug and play’ track pad.
Extremely low wear rate, rivalling the best endurance race pads available in todays market, often costing double or even triple the price.
EBC’s world-first stainless-steel backplates, reducing heat conduction through the pad and helping to lower brake hydraulic temperatures.
Unlike most semi-metallic race pads, RP-1™ relies on advanced organic friction technology and contains a low steel-fibre content, making it very kind on brake discs without sacrificing pad wear itself.- Unlike most semi-metallic race pads, RP-1™ relies on advanced organic friction technology and contains a low steel-fibre cont
