EBC brake pads contain Aramid fibers, these are man-made high performance fibers, used widely for their light weight, high strength, abrasion resistance and thermal stability. They are used as reinforcements in ballistic protection (bullet---proof helmets and vests, vehicle armor), cut-resistant gloves, aircraft and marine structural parts, power transmission belts and of course friction products where their high strength to weight, thermal stability and abrasion resistance provide advantages over cheaper steel fiber based products.
Strong, predictable brake response and fingertip control
Give you excellent stopping excellent stopping power without noise and rotor galling, even on polished rotors
Did not need to replace the older shoes but they look great. Put them on to be sure of fit and all looks fine. Will be using them soon because I love to ride and know they will ware out soon. Good buy!
