Z04 Sintered Compound
Record-breaking performance, durability and safety.
The actual same pads supplied by Brembo’s racing division to championship-winning World Superbike and World Supersport Championship teams, are now available from UKRS to you for your sports bike’s calipers for track day and race use.
The Brembo high performance brake pad range was developed exclusively for racing and designed to offer unparalleled performance in the most demanding race conditions: with greater braking control, greater system stability, increased braking power, outstanding resistance to high temperatures and reduced wear and reduced wear (i.e., these pads may seem costly but they last far longer than most comparable race pads which goes a long way to equalising their true cost).
The pinnacle of the Brembo Racing division’s range is the unique sintered Z04 compound, the most significant characteristics of which are its very high friction, superb lever feel and consistent performance, especially at extremely high disc temperatures.
These characteristics ensure superlative, consistent braking for the entire duration of a race and will make your braking system much less prone to fade.
For racing, low temperature efficiency is less important, and as a result, the Z04 pad is not suitable nor approved for road use.
Please note: As these are a race pad, they generate far more heat than a regular pad, meaning that we recommend DOT 4 Racing Brake Fluid (not DOT 5 or 5.1 or standard DOT 4) which has a far higher “dry” boiling point (of 312 to 325 degrees - Motul RBF600/660) compared with standard DOT 4 fluids (normally approx. 245 degrees)
NOTE: 2 Sets are required normally.
