Setting a new standard for the Elise community!

Most of the experienced Elise drivers base their brake pad choice on their personal experience. What you'd really be looking for are pads with low compressibility and which offer a very flat torque curve.

Most important for everyone, experienced and unexperienced, you would want your Elise or Exige to brake reliably on track without hassles. Spending 200 for a trackday means you want to be out on track. You don't want to spend time in the pitlane identifying or solving brake problems.

These are the questions to be asked when looking for new brake pads

"Will they fade during a long track session?"
"Will the balance shift because of change in friction levels from cold to hot?"
"Will they cause juddering or vibration?"
"How long will I be able to use a set of pads?"

Most manufacturers will struggle to answer these questions and focus on the specific features of their product. Reducing some of the stopping distance might be extremely important on the last lap of a sprint race, but most of us are more concerned about all round stability.

It's from this perspective that the CL Brakes Sintered Brake Pad line was developed. The objective is to provide the most user-friendly high performance brake pads available.
Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to worry about bedding-in, vibrations, gobs of corrosive brake dust, and extreme pad and rotor wear rates? That's exactly what you can do with CL Brakes' new Sintered Racing Pads.

CL Brakes competition pads use Sintered material which has a higher cofficint of friction/Mu when hot or cold versus competing semi-metallic, organic, or ceramic compounds.
There is no need to warm-up to provide near maximal bite and performance. CL Brakes pads always offer the same performance.. hot or cold.

CL Brakes pads need very little preparation to achieve maximum performance: only a few moderate stops after install to seat the pads on the rotors.

CL Brakes pads offer much less pad transfer to rotor than other pad types
This means no vibrations, judder, or damaged rotors. The thin graphite transfer layer is consistent, repeatable, and self-cleaning.

CL Brakes mildest compound pads offer fade resistantance to over 650C. It is nearly impossible to fade on an Elise or Exige.

CL Brakes High metal content is extremely wear resistant.
It is not uncommon to get 2 to 3 times more laps vs. other pad materials and types!

CL Brakes Sintered material is semi-porous.
Can be used in any weather condition with an added margin of safety: snow, rain, extreme cold and heat. Pores retain abrasive particles for superior wear rates.

CL Brakes pad material is brazed to backing plate at 1000C.
CL Brakes pads offer greater density than other pad types, making it less compressible.
This results in firmer pedal feel and makes it easier to modulate.

CL Brakes pads are extensively track tested by various customers doing track days, but also by participants in the EliseTrophy and Lotus Cup Europe.
Will you be the next customer to realise these perform better than the benchmark at lower pricing?

RC5+

The RC5+ is CL Brakes latest offering. They were developed as a moderate trackday or race pad. The pads offer lower noise and low dust.
The beauty of this compound is that despite its mild manners, it still retains a very high max operating temperature.
It is a great choice for the Elise or Exige on road tires.
It's extremely wear resistant, and doesn't destroy rotors with pad deposits like the majority of road pads do when pushed to their temperature envelope.
