NRS Brakes

NRS brake pads are the world’s longest lasting brake pad for a reason. We use Galvanized steel construction and premium friction materials, making sure you have the same stopping power through out the life of the entire brake pad.

NRS also uses patented SHARK-Metal™ technology insuring the friction material never delaminates from the backing plate, giving you more secure, safer stops.
