Sinter Road & Track blocks deliver optimum braking power combined with a long lifetime. Stability is a guarantee, even in (non-professional) race conditions. With the patented NRS technology, a metal shark-skin design ensures that the brake pads cannot slip or move from the backing plate, even in extreme (braking) conditions. These specific brake pads are fixed on a bronze coloured steel carrier plate.
The name gives it away: sintered metal, supplemented with a small amount of binder, is the main component of this type of brake pad. Sintering is the pressing together of ground, shredded metal, often copper, bronze or a mixture of these. This is done under high pressure, at high temperature. A solid mass, which forms the brake pad, is the final result. Mixed metals are well suited for wider applications and street use. Blocks to which carbon has been added - resistant to extreme temperatures - deliver better results in high-performance conditions such as those found on the race track. Sintered brake pads are not as soft as standard organic ones. More power at the brake lever is a logical consequence. The corrosive substance released during braking requires you to clean the rims of the motorcycle regularly. For intensive use, high braking demands or really performance-oriented conditions, sintered brake pads are recommended.
