What Should I Take into Account When Choosing Bendix Brake Pads?

There are a bunch of factors that alter exactly how your brake pads perform day to day. Pads designed for different cars may over or underperform if used in the wrong application, so it’s vital to make sure you’re finding the right balance of braking for both your vehicle and your driving style.

STOPPING POWER

  • Different brake pads are made from different compounds, offering varying levels of friction
  • Harsher compounds offer more friction, more stopping power and a more responsive braking experience
  • Stronger brake pads are superior for aggressive driving, but may not be safe or practical for those looking to undertake everyday street driving

NOISE & DUST

  • Brake pads are veering towards lower levels of noise and brake dust production every year, but balance is still key
  • Everyday brake pads, such as the General CT, are engineered to deliver minimal dust and noise
  • Performance brake pads trade off higher levels of noise and dust in the name of enhanced friction and better braking

MY VEHICLE

  • Certain vehicles adhere by different regulations to ensure they have the safest brake pads
  • European vehicles, for instance, have to adhere to Euro 90 regulations stating that all brake pads need to be within 90% of OE levels of performance
  • Other vehicles require certain brake wear sensors and parts that often come with certain brake pad sets

Which Bendix Brake Pad Should I Choose?

GENERAL CT

  • Bendix’s all-round brake pad, for everyday use and responsive braking in normal street driving conditions
  • Uses a titanium stripe to reduce the need for bedding in from the very first press of the brake pedal
  • Stealth design uses an advanced shape to disperse noise and reduce dust production

4WD/SUV

  • Similar in performance to the General CT, but toughened up to cope with the high temperatures and braking loads generated in 4x4 vehicles
  • Epoxy-modified resin bonds friction material together to help your brakes withstand the most extreme temperatures
  • Blue titanium stripe means no more bedding in
  • Noise absorbing shims eliminate problem of noisy brakes

HEAVY DUTY

  • Manufactured from a unique compound that’s designed to work harder, carry more loads, stay cooler and last longer
  • Noise absorbing shims get rid of noisy brakes that are common in heavy-duty vehicles

EURO+

  • True OE level braking performance for European vehicles
  • Many Euro+ sets come the brake wear sensors required for use in these vehicles
  • All Euro+ pads meet Euro 90 standards
