SV/SH – Sinter street

The name gives it away: sintered metal, is the main component of this type of brake pad, supplemented with a small amount of binding agent. Sintering is the pressing together of ground, shredded metal, often copper, bronze or a mixture of these two. This is done under high pressure, at a high temperature, resulting in a solid mass, forming the brake pad. 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 dust released during braking requires you to clean the rims of the motorcycle regularly. Sintered brake pads are recommended for intensive use, high braking demands or very performance-oriented conditions. These specific brake pads are mounted on a bronze-coloured steel carrier plate.
