SBS’s new brake pad compound tool

SBS is a European company which makes a huge range of brake pads, discs and clutch plates for motorcycles. The company has just launched a new online tool to help you choose the right replacement parts for your bike, because many of these components are offered with different compounds or components.

When I tested the system for  my bike, there was recommended OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) replacements, but also more economic and higher performance options listed – and not just for brake pads, but also clutch plates and discs. – NP

New selection tool from SBS makes it easy to find the best match between bike and riders braking preferences

Some riders prefer more stopping power than others, some ride in dry conditions, others in wet conditions. It can be hard to find the perfect match of brake pad compound as it really is a combination of rider’s preferences, bike model and use of bike.

SBS has now made an online tool that makes it easy to find the best brake pad compound that will not only fit the right bike model, but will also match the riders braking preferences and riding style. You just need to answer 2-3 questions, and you will get the best fit right away.

After finding the right compound, you might want to use the SBS model look-up widget to find the right size of brake pad for exactly your bike model.

Both tools are available for free at
