AAPEX marks the global debut of the Brembo’s all Copper Free XTRA brake pad line with Low Met and Ceramic NAO formulations (XTRA and XTRA Ceramic), bridging the gap between Brembo’s aftermarket and performance lines and demonstrating Brembo’s ability to provide tailored solutions for those seeking the best friction material in an aftermarket pad alongside with a lower impact on the environment.

  • The XTRA Low Met line offers best in class performance, stopping and experience for the car enthusiast.
  • The XTRA Ceramic line delivers superior performance and comfort, with minimal dust to ensure cleaner wheels.

The addition of those new pads to the existing XTRA range, which includes Brembo Max slotted discs and XTRA drilled discs, creates the ultimate performance combination specifically designed for high performance vehicles

Brembo will also unveil a new visual identity across its pads line to help distinguish each family with different backing plates and shim colors.

  • The color of the shim will indicate which family the product belongs to. Black for Prime, Red for XTRA and Silver for Beyond.
  • The backing plate color will communicate the friction material. Black for Low-Met, gray for NAO/Ceramic, Blue for Beyond EV and Green for Beyond Greenance.

This new extended and tailored made aftermarket pad strategy has been made possible by Brembo’s joint venture with Gold Phoenix, enriching and strengthening Brembo’s position in the aftermarket pads market for development and state-of-the-art production facility.

In addition to new brake pad materials, Brembo’s AAPEX booth will showcase other product families, like Beyond EV and Beyond Greenance, Brembo’s cutting-edge solutions kits that have been both already recognized by various prestigious international innovation awards.
