We caught up with Jon Wright, the tech manager at EBC brakes, to find out all that’s worth knowing about pads.

Tech Talk

Different pads offer different qualities.

FB: What’s the best way of bedding pads in for longevity?

JW: Just to apply the brakes gently, and whatever you do, do not grab them on them straight away! This means that the material can mate with the wear pattern of the disc, rather than patching, which is the exact same thing you should be doing with new discs. This should normally happen for 100-150 miles before the pads are properly bedded in.
