The Trickstuff brake pads are made from organic materials and bonded with synthetic resin. Organic pads have the great advantage of being a thermal insulator, which protects the seals in the brake caliper from overheating. In order to improve braking properties and reduce abrasion, the pad contains small amounts of metal particles. Nevertheless, the pads are mostly organic, you could say they are semi-metallic. This mixture results in optimal dry and wet braking values and also keeps disc wear to a minimum.
Thanks to the 2 mm steel carrier plate, there is minimal heat transport into the brake caliper, at the same time the proportion of friction material increases to come back to the standard total thickness of approx. 3.9 - 4.0 mm. This means a longer service life, excellent fading stability, even higher dry and wet friction values with extremely low wear.
