Fibrax Pads for Carbon & Alloy Rims

Specialist in replacement parts for brakes, UK based Fibrax, showed its new rim pads specially suited for carbon and alloy rims at Eurobike. The pads are compatible with all regular brake systems. There’s no need to change them when carbon wheels are switched to alloy.

The pads come in a blister packaging. Also new at Fibrax are sintered disc pads with a wave front surface. The special surface pattern reduces the bed-in time sintered pads require. Fibrax’s new wave front surface finish greatly reduces the breaking-in time the pads need to adjust their surfaces to exactly match that of the rotor.

This time is reduced by producing pressure points across the pad surface, leading to a rapid transfer of material to the rotor and allowing the disk surface to match the cross-sectional profile of the rotor far more quickly. Fibraflex hydraulic hoses were also launched at the Fibrax booth.

These have new high performance PTFE lined, stainless steel braided hoses rated at 13,000 psi, which are far more flexible than the previous ones from Fibrax. The Fibraflex hoses come with high quality fittings and are available for all major hydro brake systems.
