SBS Goes 100% NRS Safe

SBS Friction A/S secures a 100% safe brake pad program with mechanical bonding for both ceramic and sintered brake pads.

As the first manufacturer in the motorcycle industry, SBS last year succeeded in launching a sinter material for street brake pads using NRS technology for the SP program to the global aftermarket.

Now a new range of world leading road racing brake pads with NRS technology have been tested for a year and will be launched with a new Dynamic Racing Concept. Having herewith secured its position as the high standard in braking through design, quality, performance and durability this engagement further entrenches the SBS position of market leadership.

SBS Friction, the world’s leader in motorcycle brakes in the global aftermarket, has committed to going towards 100% NRS Safe throughout its brake product line. NRS Safe products exclusively use the NUCAP Retention System (NRS), the most advanced mechanical attachment technology with a zero failure rate in over 1 Billion units Worldwide.

“There is no room for error in motorcycle braking. By going 100% NRS Safe SBS is using the absolute best in mechanical attachment enabling its riders to feel confident that they are using the safest performing brakes available,” CSO SBS Friction A/S Christel Munk Pedersen says.

“The braking environment demands components that are capable of standing up to its violent vibration as well as incredible heating and cooling fluctuations. It is well known that traditional adhesives do not handle these extremes and are prone to failure leading to detachment. NRS Safe attachment is a mechanism that does not fail,” NUCAP CEO Montu Khokhar comments.
