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 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 for years.
Although the Carbon X 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 and dry conditions such a feature is a major benefit. In EBS's 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 bike's hydraulics is greatly assisted by using a carbon-based pad such as the X pad.
- EBC "X" Series carbon brake pads have been the choice of top enduro riders around the world for several years.
- "X" Series brake pads utilize a carbon-graphite formula which reduces heat generation and conduction, helping to keep both the rotor and caliper cool.
- Ideal for hot dry conditions and have been R 90 approved for street use on dual sport motorcycles.
- Includes two brake pads, enough for one caliper.
EBC Carbon X Brakes are coded red in paint finish and are equally happy on an ATV or a MX or Enduro bike and are also used in ATV Sport riding. However, EBC cautions riders using these pads for ATV use, especially on rear rotors, as wear life may be shorter than sintered pads originally installed in the original unit build. With the lower price point compared to sintered, millions of riders still choose the carbon pads. For Street Enduro use, such as the "Paris-Dakar" style adventure bikes for road use, EBC Carbon X Brakes are an ideal choice, it has been R 90 approved on many of such models in Europe and is safe for road use because of its ability to work effectively when hot.
Goog brand I love motosport
Bought these a couple weeks ago. I'm an avid woods rider and I'm always on the back brakes. They show no wear yet and the red shoes look nice in the caliper. Real easy to install and seem to be holding up well
got these for my 02 warrior 350. They're great so far. Good stopping power even when they get tortured. i would buy them again for sure. Thanks motosport.con
Good quality, Easy installation, Great performance, A great buy for the buck.
If you go fast off road or mx and need the best front brake pads you can get, these are it. They're typically red, not black as commonly shown, not as durable as sintered metallic pads, but much better feel and don't grind down your rotors.
I'm not the pro-rider, but these pads get the job done for the sunday trail rider like me. very affordable and nice quality.
awesome quality. Impressed by the performance and behavior that is greatly noticeable. The predictability of how they respond while under heavy breaking is what I'm most impressed with. Like all carbon pads they need to heat up quite a bit before they act accordingly, and when they do they are perfect. Most noticeably under heavy breaking is how the brakes will bind on the rotor and not lock up unpredictably. They give you a nice heavy drag when you need it and they still bite hard and quick when you want them to, but any good pads do that, the heavy drag is the ticket man, the heavy drag...
Used them before and never had any trouble they are good pads
Seem to work just fine....
Pads installed easy and fit well. Seem to lack stopping power of the oem pads. Also, being an auto technician I was unpleasantly surprised to find I needed two sets to complete the front brake job. Im used to getting enough pads to do one axle.
These brake pads are the bomb for enduro. They aren't grabby like sintered metal pads. So your suspension doesn't get upset when you come in hard to turns and hammer the brakes. Much more progressive then stock KTM metal pads.
These pads are great for the rear because they do not get hot. Don't use on the front because the stopping power isn't good. For the rear they are great though!
Great product and wheeler stops on a dime!
Awesome pads for extreme heat. Fixing rear brake loss on KTM. Only downside to me is they don't last long enough, but they are worth it not to loss the rear brake in a race.
As the title suggests, these are brake pads. They fit, and they do their job.
Can't really comment on durability yet, but they seem to work quite well in slowing me down.
Also, mine were red, not black like the photo.
The absolute best break pads that are available on the market. I wouldnt use any other pads besides EBC
bike stops on a dime... so far so good, only have a couple of rides on them, but they are great so far...
My only problem with the product isI that they came in red not black. Good brakes otherwise.
The EBC "X" Series brake pads are ideal for hot dry conditions. Feel free to give us a call at 888-676-8853 and we would be happy to help you out with your order.
