This is what happens when you give a load of engineers three years, a few thousand hours of dyno time, and the brief to create the best performing brake pad with no expense spared. You get EBC’s long awaited RP-1 range.
Direct from the specialist ‘EBC Brakes Racing’ division, and available for a huge collection of high-end factory and aftermarket multi-pot calipers, these are about as hardcore as it gets.
So, it’s pretty surprising that they start at the sort of money that you don’t have to be Adrian Newey’s accountant to be able to afford. In fact, we thought they’d be far more sphincter clenching on the cash front. I mean, shit, they’ve got stainless steel backing plates and everything!
What’s most important though is that there’s zero compromise on performance. You get industry-leading modulation for unprecedented control and feel, an extremely low wear rate, and they also come thermally bedded to eliminate early-life fade. Enough to get all you trackday heroes drooling? We should say so.
