SBS Partners in Racing

All SBS brake pads are made in Denmark to ISO 9001 standards to ensure high quality and consistency in the final product.

Most SBS racing pads are made using the NRS mechanical bonding system. NRS ensures that separation of the friction material from the backing plate does not happen.


Racing compounds are developed with the help of SBS 'Partners In Racing' and resulted in several World Championships with riders like Ana Carrasco, Carlos Checa, Kenan Sofuolgu, Chris Vermeulen, Michael van der Mark etc.


Most front runners at the Isle of Man TT choose SBS for safety and performance, including Michael Dunlop, Ian Hutchinson, John McGuiness, Connor Cummins and more.


In American racing, Briar Bauman won the 2019 AFT Twins Championship using SBS brake pads.

Numerous racing teams and riders have used SBS currently and in the past, including:

Indian Factory Racing, Team M4 Suzuki, Erion Racing, KWR Racing, Team Westby Racing, Altus Racing and Zanotti Racing

SBS NRS Bonding Technology

Dual Sinter (DS-1 & DS-2):

DS is a top-secret factory race part that is available to anybody with a race license.

The DS compound offer great initial bite and a predictable feel when the lever is released and the laser cut backing plate helps minimize warping. 

DS is made using NRS technology which SBS spearheaded back in 2001. NRS eliminates the use of glue and creates a virtually unbreakable bond between the friction material and the backing plate.

DS is currently used in World Superbike, Supersport, Moto2 and Moto3 and the long pad life of the DS makes it a favorite in World Endurance racing. DS is for racing use only.


Dual Sinter has been updated and split into two compounds: DS-1 and DS-2.

DS-1 has a strong initial bite with a linear friction curve.

DS-2 has a lower initial bite with a progressive friction curve.

The two compounds can also be combined by using DS-1 in one caliper, and DS-2 in the other, combining the benefits of both, and creating a DS-1.5.





























Dual Carbon (DC):

The DC compound is the most popular road racing pad worldwide. DC has won numerous World Championships since its release in 2001. Since then, the DC compound has gone through several updates making it very relevant today.

DC has a smooth initial bite and a very manageable progressive feel. The laser cut backing plate minimize warping.

DC Performs great on cast iron, and stainless rotors and is heat cycled at the factory, so no thermal bed-in required.

DC offers long pad life and is very easy on rotors. DC is made using NRS technology which SBS spearheaded back in 2001. NRS eliminates the use of glue and creates a virtually unbreakable bond between the friction material and the backing plate.

Being carbon based, DC pads need heat to function, so absolutely no street use.



Dual Carbon Classic (DCC):


The DCC compound is based on DC but optimized for use in classic motorcycles with damping rod forks and bias ply tires.

DCC has a great feel and works with stainless steel and cast iron brake rotors.

DCC is made using NRS technology which SBS spearheaded back in 2001. NRS eliminates the use of glue and creates a virtually unbreakable bond between the friction material and the backing plate.
Being carbon based, DCC pads need heat to function, so absolutely no street use.

Bed-in procedure as DC listed above.



Racing Sinter (RS):

The RS compound is a great trackday and club race compound. It offers a great, predictable feel but much more stopping power than a street pad. Compared to a street compound, RS has more thermal stability, which means no fade at higher temperatures and a much firmer brake lever.

Xavier Zayat won the 2015 ASRA Sportbike Championship on RS pads.

RS is a great upgrade for a street bike.

RQ:

RQ is a race specific compound for rear brake applications. With a very high resistance to fade in extreme heat, the RQ compound works well for riders who use the rear brake heavily for bike stability at corner entry or as homemade traction – or wheelie control.

RQ works well for flat track use where the rear brake is used heavily for bike stability.

RQ is made using NRS technology which SBS spearheaded back in 2001. NRS eliminates the use of glue and creates a virtually unbreakable bond between the friction material and the backing plate.
