CL Brakes RC5-C Brake Pads
(Elise, Exige, Europa, VX220)

Starting at: €157.88 (€191.03 Inc TAX)


The RC5C is CL Brakes latest offering.
They were developed as a moderate trackday or race pad, just like the RC5+, but apart from all the advantages of RC5+ the RC5C pads provides a black cataphoretic coating.

This treatment adds an obstacle against dust and corrosion.
It basically makes it more of an allround pad which greatly reduce the risk of delamination due to chemicals.

Most of the experienced Elise drivers base their brake pad choice on their personal experience. What you'd really be looking for are pads with low compressibility and a flat torque curve.

Most important for everyone, experienced and unexperienced, you would want your Elise or Exige to brake reliably on track without hassles. Spending £300 for a trackday means you want to be out on track. You don't want to spend time in the pitlane identifying or solving brake problems.

These are the questions to be asked when looking for new brake pads

"Will they fade during a long track session?"
"Will the balance shift because of change in friction levels from cold to hot?"
"Will they cause juddering or vibration?"
"How long will I be able to use a set of pads?"

Most manufacturers will struggle to answer these questions and focus on the specific features of their product. Reducing some of the stopping distance might be extremely important on the last lap of a sprint race, but most of us are more concerned about all round stability.

It's from this perspective that the CL Brakes Sintered Brake Pad line was developed. The objective is to provide the most user-friendly high performance brake pads available.

CL Brakes competition pads use Sintered material which has a higher coëfficiënt of friction/Mu when hot or cold versus competing semi-metallic, organic, or ceramic compounds.
There is no need to warm-up to provide near maximal bite and performance. CL Brakes pads always offer the same performance.. hot or cold.

CL Brakes pads need very little preparation to achieve maximum performance: only a few moderate stops after install to seat the pads on the rotors. (if you install on new rotors)

CL Brakes pads offer much less pad transfer to rotor than other pad types
This means no vibrations, judder, or damaged rotors. The thin graphite transfer layer is consistent, repeatable, and self-cleaning.

CL Brakes mildest compound pads offer fade resistantance to over 650°C. It is nearly impossible to fade on an Elise or Exige.

CL Brakes High metal content is extremely wear resistant.
It is not uncommon to get 2 to 3 times more laps vs. other pad materials and types!

CL Brakes Sintered material is semi-porous.
Can be used in any weather condition with an added margin of safety: snow, rain, extreme cold and heat. Pores retain abrasive particles for superior wear rates.

CL Brakes pad material is brazed to backing plate at 1000°C.
CL Brakes pads offer greater density than other pad types, making it less compressible.
This results in firmer pedal feel and makes it easier to modulate.

CL Brakes pads are extensively track tested by various customers doing track days, but also by participants in the Lotus Cup Europe.
Will you be the next customer to realise these perform better than the benchmark at lower pricing?
