Winmax Historic Brake Pads

Winmax W3 Brake Pads

The Winmax W3 is a versatile metallic brake pad compound and can be used on both road and track. This is a more track focused compound than the W1 and W2; giving more braking control and very different bite characteristics that are more intended for track conditions and race compound tires. The Winmax W3 provides a new level of control and bite, that extends consistently into very high temperature ranges. It gives an ideal balance for those that need a daily driven brake pad, and are not willing to forgo any performance, at the cost of a bit of noise, dust, and a marginally higher wear rate. The Winmax W3 brake pads are most similar in performance to the Ferodo DS2500, Endless MXRS/MX72, Project Mu HC+, PFC 97, Hawk HP+ and Pagid RS4-2

The main characteristics of the Winmax W3 brake pad range are:

  • Road / Track Combination, Autocross, Gymkhana use
  • Specifically targeted for braking control
  • Friction coefficient of 0.34 - 0.37 over a working temperature range of from cold up to 600ºC

Winmax W5 Brake Pads

Made with high steel ingredients but perfectly balanced for large circuit racing, the Winmax W5 brake pads are suited to dedicated trackday cars plus circuit race and rally cars. The Winmax W5 compound gives a constant braking co-efficient across the temperature range giving excellent braking modulation. This allows the driver to make minor braking corrections without upsetting the cars balance. The Winmax W5 will also give low brake pad wear. This is a good upgrade for people using Endless CC38/ME22, Project Mu 777, Ferodo DS1.11, Cobalt XR3 / XR4 and Pagid RST3 / RS14.

The main characteristics of the Winmax W5 brake pad range are:

  • Competition, Road Racing, Rally use
  • Made for full race conditions where high heat tolerance and precise brake controls are necessary
  • Friction coefficient of 0.40 - 0.43 over a working temperature range of 100ºC to 750ºC

Winmax W6.5 Brake Pads

The Winmax W6.5 is similar to the W7 brake pad compound but is designed to work at lower temperatures with a higher initial bite than the W7. Winmax W6.5 brake pads give a similar braking co-efficient over all temperatures to the CL Brakes RC6 but with much improved pad wear. The Winmax W6.5 is based on the W7 compound but with better response and performance at low temperatures. The main characteristics of the Winmax W6.5 brake pad range are:

  • Competition, Road Racing, Rally use
  • Made for full race conditions where high heat tolerance and precise brake controls are necessary
  • Friction coefficient of 0.47 - 0.50 over a working temperature range of 50ºC to 800ºC
