EBC Ultimax is a high friction pad designed for general replacement use on cars, vans and SUV’s (4x4s). Using shimmed, chamfered and slotted technology and incorporating EBC’s unique brake in coating for super quick pad bed-in, (in Europe only certain numbers are shimmed, in USA ALL EBC Ultimax range are shimmed).
EBC Brakes black coded brake pads are a high friction premium quality friction material approved to ECE R90 brake safety regulations and as such are an exact equivalent to original equipment pads fitted to your vehicle from the factory – but for far less money.
Don’t let the lower price point cloud your view of this superb quality product, these pads will stop your vehicle as fast as any original equipment pad and faster than most aftermarket pads. One brilliant feature of EBC R90 pads is their ability to completely eliminate brake judder and these pads will actually COMPENSATE for mild brake judder after 300-400 miles of use. Nominal friction co-efficient 0.46 with minimal rotor damage and similar dust to original parts.
Reduced Rotor Wear
Disc wear is reduced by up to 50% with the EBC material compared to more abrasive semi metallics. It is common to replace the rotor with every pad change on some OE parts but with EBC Brakes it is quite common to see one rotor last two sets of pad lifetimes, offering significant savings. This does NOT mean that the EBC pads wear quickly either.
