Sinter Brakes manufactures high end, premium brake pads in the heart of Central Europe. Based in the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, Sinter has been producing brake pads and rotors for a number of markets for 50 years including karting and motorcycle racing.
Four compounds are available - distinguished by the color of the backing plate. Red S514 will outperfom the vast majority of EOM pads with impressive pad life and quiet operation. Black S550, is at a minimum comparable to most brands high-performance compounds. Sinter Green S2032 is an ultra high performance compound that has been proven on the World Cup Downhill circuit. For those who ride e-bikes and heavier bikes or want the longest pads life, the Blue S530is the one for you. Optimised for fade resistance at any temperature and the best longevity.

We test pads using our in-house BTM-11 dynamometer. Performing 84 braking cycles comprising 3 seconds of acceleration to 15.5mph and 7 seconds of deceleration it records temperature and friction coefficient. The % improvements in table above are the Friction Coefficient performance improvements.
- Brake Torque (Nm)
- Brake Disc Temperature (°C)
- Hydraulic Pressure (Bar)
- Lever Force (N)
- Friction Coefficient Notes:
- The machine uses a 120kg flywheel that can be adjusted for different settings
- For this study a Fading Test was used for friction material evaluation
- Before the sequence, a bedding-in process was carried out
- For this test a Shimano Deore BR-M6000 brake was used
The price includes one caliper's worth of pads as well as the pad spring, and everything is delivered in a handy tin perfect for stashing whatever you desire.
