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.
