Bendix Ultimate brake pads are specially formulated to offer high friction, high temperature tolerance and measurably better performance across a range of braking conditions. They have exceptional stopping power giving you shorter stopping distances and a significant resistance to brake fade at high temperature. Ultimate pads are recommended for fitment to front and rear to maintain balanced driving, for sports, performance and prestige vehicles. There is a reference to suit most high performance and prestige cars. Ultimate pads offer excellent pedal feel and are ideal for energetic driving styles, competition and high speed touring and freeway driving.
Bendix Ultimate is tested using High Performance Certification (HPC). Under these standards, Ultimate delivers proven reduced stopping distances, excellent pedal feel and tolerance of extreme temperatures to provide total control. Bendix Ultimate has been rated in lab and road tests against leading brake pads from around the world. The results are outstanding on every level. Ultimate consistently performs under all conditions delivering solid pedal feel from the first stop to the last with minimal fade.
Bendix noise absorbing shims are designed to effectively prevent the transmission of vibration and noise from the brake pad by reducing the effect of the dynamic forces generated during braking. The material construction utilises advanced Fibre Impregnated Rubber Steel technology making the Shims impervious to a wide range of climates, salt, water, oil, while providing excellent noise damping and vibration isolation.
Absolute Stopping Power. Bendix Ultimate is tested using High Performance...
Bendix Ultimate brake pads have been strenuously tested to meet or beat the leading high performance standards and certification, hence the High Performance Certified (HPC). As can been seen from the comparison information shown above Bendix Ultimate brake pads meet or exceed the performance test conducted.
Brakes heat up after a few hard stops and the friction level decreases (fade) meaning you have to push harder to engage the brakes. As can be seen in the graph, Bendix Ultimate maintain their friction level even as the temperature rises with continuous stops, for the same pedal effort.
Not all brake pad material reacts consistently under increasing pressure. Testing different materials at well beyond highway speed produced some very interesting results. As this graph shows, when using general-pupose brake pad material, pressing the pedal harder doesn’t always result in a corresponding increase in braking power. The results with Bendix Ultimate brake pads are different. They have a linear braking response and react consistently, so when you push 20% harder on the pedal, you get 20% more braking. Perfectly suited to both high speed touring and freeway driving, Bendix Ultimate delivers absolute stopping power.
