Advanced Performance Formulation

These pads are designed with an advanced performance formulation, which provides smoother and more predictable responses even over high temperatures. Post-cured for better performance and providing long pad wear, these advanced PERFORMANCE Sport Series brake pads can lengthen the life of a vehicle's brake rotors

Designed to Perform

Performance vehicles tend to run hot and hard which means they need brake pads that are able to keep up with them on the road. Unlike other brake pads R1 PERFORMANCE Sport Series is designed to operate exceptionally well in advanced cars, high speed usage, and a very wide range of driving conditions. This provides not only safer handling but also a smoother and easier driving experience.
