About DP Brakes
The automotive and aircraft industries have been using disc brakes since the 1940s; it took the motorcycle industry two decades to catch up.
Disc brakes improved braking performance, but further improvement was necessary for wet conditions. Dunlop Aviation introduced sintered metal disc brake pads in 1955 which could penetrate the film of water that forms on a disc, a major improvement over organic friction materials. Based on this success, Dunlop Aviation was commissioned by the British Government to incorporate sintered disc brake technology for motorcycle applications. Thus, was born DP BRAKES.
To this day sintered metal still provides state-of-the-art braking performance. The world’s major motorcycle manufacturers have recognized the benefits of sintered metal. Today, more than 95 percent of motorcycles produced are fitted with sintered metal brake pads as original equipment.
