EBC Carbon X & TT Brake Pads
EBC Brakes™ Carbon X or TT brake pads are suitable for either street or off road use. They are created from impregnated hybrid carbon to give medium lifetime and a cool disc braking temperature.
One name always comes to mind when talking about the best in off road riders and our old friend and long time EBC outlet in his shops Malcolm Smith is an avid supporter of the EBC Brakes Carbon X or TT Brakes range and has used them for years in Trail and Enduro riding. Also multi time champ Randy Hawkins has been a long time user of EBC carbon based X pads (or TT pads as we call them in Europe for years.)
Although the Carbon X or TT Brakes will not outlast a sintered copper brake pad it has the unique benefit of lower heat generation and transfer. When riding off road in fast dry conditions such a feature is a major benefit. In our years of listening to the faster riders we have seen cases where the rear brake rotor can be glowing red in night rides which shows just how hot trail braking can get a rotor. Stopping this getting to the bikes hydraulics is greatly assisted by using a Carbon based pad such as the X or TT pad.
