Upgrading your brake pads can make a huge difference over your stock pads. With all the options for brake pads available on the market today, it can be confusing what the proper pad is for you and your riding style. Whether it's street, track, or full race, Riders Discount has an option for you with Carbone Lorraine brake pads!

These are not yet listed on the website, but you can place your order with Casey by giving him a call at 866.931.6644 ext. 822. Is email more convenient? Send us a message through this forum or write to us at FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM, and we'll get back to you right away!

Carbone Lorraine is one of the more popular brands on the market today used by anyone and everyone from top level racers to your everyday street rider. Carbone Lorraine has basically 3-4 different compounds available for regular street bikes.

Your top level pad used for heavy track duty and racing is the C60 pad. Next would be the XBK5 which is perfect for the canyon riders and intermediate level track riders. Last up, if you're just looking for OE replacement pads, Carbone Lorraine offers the A3+ pads. Rear pads are also available in the RX3 model.

The C60 and XBK5 track level pads have a very similar braking characteristic for lighter riding, but the difference comes when you really are pushing the edge of your braking capabilities. The C60 shines through providing consistent performance and feedback maintaining a higher friction point than the XBK5. However, the XBK5 does provide a slightly higher initial bite if that's a braking characteristic you prefer.

Brake pads from Carbone Lorraine are bike model specific, let us know what bike you have and what kind of riding you do and we'll help you out!
