Organic Brake Pads – Don’t believe ALL the hype

I picked up a set of organic brake pads  because their Kevlar fibers are light, tough, heat-resistant  and nearly silent.  In the past, buying Kevlar brake pads was expensive, reserved for riders wiling to spend hundreds of dollars on brake pads.

I picked up a set of organic brake pads  because their Kevlar fibers are light, tough, heat-resistant  and nearly silent.  In the past, buying Kevlar brake pads was expensive, reserved for riders wiling to spend hundreds of dollars on brake pads. With new manufacturing techniques, Kevlar is a supplemental material in products of all kinds. Bike tires, frying pans, smart phones, sports equipment,  satellites, and of course brake pads. With so many applications the price of Kevlar is dropping, which means you can buy Afforable Kevlar brake pads for a competitive price. Here’s the brake pads I got:

EBC Organic Front Brake Pads

Made in EBC’s own factory in Bristol, England, the EBC Kevlar® series has now been renamed NAO series or Non-Asbestos Organic, although they still use the famous Dupont Kevlar® fibre in conjunction with other high tech fibres that have come on the market. The NAO series are a superb all round value-for-money replacement for all levels of motorcycle and are still extremely popular with many riders who prefer the “feel” of organic pads.

NAO series are fully TUV tested and KBA certified and conform to the new ECE R90 brake regulations. EBC is at the forefront of this technology and will be the first on the market to offer Reg. 90 approved pads and packaging. Most EBC organic pads have expansion grooves which reduce noise and prevent cracking. The aramid fibre compound with non-ferrous particles helps to prevent surface “scorching” under load.
