Product Description

• The steel used in the EBC rotor blades is a special stainless blend with higher friction effect than normal heat treated stainless steel found on stock discs
• Boasts up to 10% improvement in friction effect improving brakes even further
• Weight of the X and XC series is reduced by 5-10% by using a 6 only button drive system on a lightweight alloy center hub, which once again grabs the lead over stock parts
• The SD-System uses a square sided rivet with many advantages
• The SD-System of square sided buttons means that the rotor can expand inwards and outwards unrestrained and that perfect rotor functionality is retained at any speed or load
• This extends the lifetime of the rotor and prevents distortion
• Keep the rotor blades perfectly true and flat throughout their life cycle and technically the only reason for a rotor to need replacement will be impact damage or over a very extended number of miles possible rotor wear limits being exceeded
• This means that a rotor equipped with the EBC Brakes SD-System could last 5-10 times as long as a conventional rotor built with circular buttons
• Maintains close tolerances of the rotor in the drive direction over a far longer period thereby extending rotor life

Ultra lightweight EBC Brakes X series floating front Rotor since their introduction they have become one if the world’s best-selling lightest and best performing discs available for all modern sport bikes. The Rotor feature EBC Brakes unique and patented S-Drive button system which features square sided rivets captured in square drive pockets on the rotor and hub which allow the outer rotor blade to expand and contract freely under the heat of braking without suffering rivet lock. As the design of Motorcycles progressed over the last 10 years with machines getting lighter, more powerful and faster the demand on Motorcycle brakes has increased. Great technical forward movements such as 4 and 6 piston calipers and more recently the radial caliper have helped stop motorcycles faster but there has been, until now little progress made on brake Rotor. There have been attempts to reduce weight on Rotor, usually by drilling more holes in the rotor blade but always the OEM builders have used the boring “Round Style” rivet or drive button technology. This outdated method of building Rotor has now been consigned to the history books as EBC Brakes proudly announces the arrival of a new and patented design of drive button known as the SD System. SD stands for Square Drive which describes the button designs used in the new EBC X and XC Rotor. X and XC Rotor are the lightest Rotor you can buy, they will eliminate all your vibration problems and last longer than conventional Rotor using round button technology. Both designs further reduce weight by using only six drive buttons. This further reduces the unit weight by up to 300 grams.
