Product Description

Based on the XR1 formulation, Cobalt Friction XR2 Brake Pads features a strong initial bite with a controlled transition to a medium-high rising torque profile. Particularly well-suited to chassis/tire combinations or surface conditions which do not respond well to high initial brake energy (or where the XR1 material is too aggressive), but still require high average torque levels. By allowing the tire contact patch to extend and the chassis geometry to stabilize before imparting maximum braking torque, the driver remains in full control throughout the brake zone, from initial pedal application to the final release.

Used these on my S2000 with XR5’s in the rear at Gingerman Raceway. They were great with azenis (almost r comp)
