The 1396 compound is the result of years of testing in all kinds of riding and all types of terrain. Based on Advanced Ceramics, this compound is designed to deliver excellent performance in all aggressive scenarios. It offers very fast heat recovery for more consistent braking which, in turn, gives the rider more "feel" and control. These pads are very easy on rotors since they do not have the same levels of metallic in them as many O.E.M. and after-market brands. The 1396 compound also features ceramic composites in its mix, which help to dissipate heat. This gives you a cooler running system that will be able to withstand more heating cycles and deliver consistent braking. Available for all off road and dual-sport applications. Galfer produces many different brake pad compounds for all types of riding styles.
