Tech Info

Based on the award winning SwissStop Disc E compound, the EXOTherm provides high performance braking at all levels of use while minimizing pad wear.

Brake system temperatures are dramatically lower than standard pads, reducing wear on pads and rotors.

Lower temperatures also mean more consistent brake performance by reducing brake fade - the reduction of brake power caused by overheated components.
