NORTHAMPTON, U.K. – EBC Brakes provided the following information about its aftermarket products for “super bikes:”
Motorcyclists enjoy nothing more than to talk about how fast their machines are, but stopping power is just as important as horsepower. Nearly all machines leave the production line with brake components that do not match the engine’s power and performance.
Arguably nowhere is this trend seen more than in the big-twin market, where one look at the rotor mounting is likely to reveal a one-piece brake rotor. This relatively easy and cost-saving option to produce drops off when it comes to a more demanding riding condition or style where everything begins to overheat.
Solid rotors don’t dissipate heat as well as floating brake rotors. The pad heats up which transfers heat into the rotor and then may lead to alignment issues, causing brake fade.
EBC Brakes produces floating brake rotors for all big twin cruisers, which will provide the brake rotor with improved heat dissipation, alignment and braking performance. Floating brake rotors are the perfect upgrade option for all big twin cruisers.
Available in polished stainless, black chrome and black satin hub finishes. Combined with the EBC’s sintered Double-H™ (HH) brake pad, this will certainly enhance the look of your ride whilst improving the braking performance of your prized possession.
Floating brakes rotors offer the full-floating feature where the rotor has room to expand relative to the hub, when hot. This movement is permitted with EBC’s patented Square Drive (SD) button system, allowing the rotors to expand and contract freely under heavy braking to help eliminate distortion which can lead to vibration (note: always fit new pads when fitting new brake rotors).
Double-H™ Sintered Pads
EBC’s Double-H™ Sintered Pads are the perfect match for stainless steel rotors, developed together, to offer the best bite, braking consistency and longevity. ‘Double H™’ relates to the H-grade of the friction rating, which these pads proudly boast. This is the highest-available grade when both hot and cold. Upgrading to EBC’s Double H™ Sintered Pads and the floating brake rotor provide the rider with greater confidence with their stopping power.
